The QML preview doesn't currently support additional libraries other than


import bb.cascades 1.0

 I do belive it will be possible to use the preview with additional libraries down the road, however until then If I want to use the preview I just create a new empty project & test it out that way

Ah that explains my issues too then!

I wish this was a bit more clear in Momentics as it appears to be an error in our QML code vs a limitation of the IDE.

IMHO I'd also much rather the preview show a red/black whatever color rectangle on the preview for a component it can't render than "break" the preview.
