Re: cascades passing GroupDataModel from c++ to qml problem!

I assume youare not seeing changes when the DataModel is updated?  I recommend exposing it to QML as a Q_PROPERTY like this:  


Q_PROPERTY(bb::cascades::DataModel* model READ model NOTIFY dataModelChanged)


	YourClass(QObject *parent = 0);


	 * This signal is emitted the data model is updated.
	void dataModelChanged();


	bb::cascades::DataModel* model() const;

	bb::cascades::GroupDataModel* mDataModel;


On the C++ side you could then fire the dataModelChanged signal after the model was changed and you want to refresh your UI.

Re: cascades passing GroupDataModel from c++ to qml problem!

we usually create the datamodel in c++ and use a q_invokable method to populate it from qml.
