QListDataModel

Since: BlackBerry 10.0.0

#include <bb/cascades/QListDataModel>

Contains a list of <Item> values, typically for a ListView.

The templated QListDataModel Model class implements the abstract DataModel class.

Template class <Item> must be convertible to QVariant in order for the data() function to work. To accomplish that, use the Q_DECLARE_METATYPE macro. For example:

namespace mynamespace {
class Contact {
...
}
} // mynamespace
Q_DECLARE_METATYPE( mynamespace::Contact *);

Then the custom object (pointer to Contact) would become convertible to and from QVariant:

Contact *pCnt1 = new Contact();
QVariant q = QVariant::fromValue(pCnt1);
Contact *pCnt2 = q.value<Contact*>();

And usable in the model: QListDataModel<Contact *> contactsModel;

Similarly, Contacts objects (not pointers) can be declared and stored in the model.

As a convenience, QListDataModel includes the following typedefs: QVariantListDataModel, QStringListDataModel, and QMapListDataModel. For more information about these typedefs, see bb::cascades.

Public Functions

QListDataModel ()

Constructs an empty QListDataModel.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

QListDataModel (
  • const QList< Item > &other)

Constructs a QListDataModel holding the provided QVariantList.

Ownership of the specified QVariantList is transferred to this QListDataModel.

Parameters
other

The initial data to be used by this QListDataModel.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual~QListDataModel ()

Destructor.

void append (
  • const Item &value)

Inserts the specified value at the end of this model.

The value must be convertible to a QVariant.

Parameters
value

The value to be appended. Ownership of QObject items that don't have parents is transferred to this QListDataModel.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void append (
  • const QList< Item > &values)

Inserts the specified list of values at the end of this QListDataModel.

Each Item in the list must be convertible to a QVariant.

Parameters
values

The list of QVariant items to be appended. Ownership of QObject items that don't have parents is transferred to this QListDataModel.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual int childCount (

Returns the number of children to the data item specified by indexPath.

Parameters
indexPath

The index path to the data item to get child count for.

Return:

The number of children.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void clear ()

Removes all values from this model.

QObjects owned by this model are deleted.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtualQVariant data (

Returns the data item that is associated with indexPath.

This function transfers ownership for QObject objects, if the returned object doesn't have any parent.

The ListView will pass the data item as a parameter to ListItemProvider::updateItem(). If item visuals are created by using ListItemComponent in QML, ListView makes the data returned from this function available in the item visuals as the context property ListItemData, and also as the property ListItem.data attached to the item visual root node.

Parameters
indexPath

The index path to the data item.

Return:

The data item associated with the indexPath. The caller must take ownership of any returned QObject objects, if the returned object doesn't already have a parent.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtual bool hasChildren (

Indicates whether the data item specified by indexPath has children.

ListView never calls this function for its root node (but does call childCount(QVariantList) for the root node), so if this DataModel only contains one level of items (no child items), this function can always return false.

Here's an example of how to override hasChildren().

bool SmartViewModel::hasChildren(const QVariantList &indexPath)
{
    // Checks whether the indexPath is an empty array.
    // An empty array indicates the the index path is for the
    // root element.
    if(indexPath.empty())
        return true; // The root node always has children

    // ...Check for other index paths...
}
Parameters
indexPath

The index path to the data item to query for children.

Return:

true if the data item has one or more children, false otherwise.

int indexOf (
  • const Item &value,
  • intfrom )

Searches this QListDataModel from the specified index position from until the specified item is found.

If no such item is found, -1 is returned.

Parameters
value

The QVariant to search for.

from

The index position to search from.

Return:

The index position if a matching item was found, -1 otherwise.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void insert (
  • inti,
  • const Item &value )

Inserts a single QVariant value at the specified index position i in this QListDataModel.

If i is 0, the value is prepended to the list. If i is size(), the value is appended to the list.

Parameters
i

The position in this QListDataModel to add the value.

value

The QVariant value to be inserted. Ownership of QObject items that don't have parents is transferred to this QListDataModel.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void insert (
  • inti,
  • const QList< Item > &values )

Inserts a list of QVariant values at the specified index position i in this QListDataModel.

If i is 0, the values are prepended to the list. If i is size(), the values are appended to the list.

Parameters
i

The position in this QListDataModel to add the list of values.

values

The list of QVariant items to be inserted. Ownership of QObject items that don't have parents is transferred to this QListDataModel.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

bool isEmpty ()

Indicates whether this QListDataModel is empty.

Return:

true if the model holds no values, false otherwise.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

virtualQString itemType (

Returns the item type for the data item at indexPath.

The item type will then be used when the ListView requests items from its ListItemProvider. It will also be used when the DataModel has indicated that items have been updated using the signals DataModel::itemUpdated or DataModel::itemsChanged with DataModelChangeType::Update.

If a ListItemTypeMapper has been provided to a ListView, the ListView calls ListItemTypeMapper::itemType() instead of DataModel::itemType().

Parameters
indexPath

The index path to the data item.

Return:

A string representing the user-defined type of the item. The default implementation returns an empty string.

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Signals

(Only has inherited signals)

void itemAdded (Inherited

Emitted when a data item has been added to this DataModel.

Parameters
indexPath

The index path to the new item.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void itemRemoved (Inherited

Emitted when a data item has been removed from this DataModel.

Parameters
indexPath

The index path to the removed item.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void itemsChanged (Inherited

Emitted when the model has changed in a way that would be inefficient to describe with single instances of the other signals.

No other signals (DataModel::itemAdded, DataModel::itemUpdated, or DataModel::itemRemoved) are emitted if this signal is emitted when a change occurs in this DataModel.

Typical examples of when this signal is emitted: data has been sorted (so that many items have changed places), the DataModel has been cleared (all items have been removed), or a batch of items has been added.

If eChangeType is DataModelChangeType::Init, or if eChangeType is DataModelChangeType::AddRemove and indexMapper is 0, a ListView reacts to this signal by releasing all of the items in its cache.

If eChangeType is AddRemove and an IndexMapper is provided, the ListView instead calls IndexMapper::newIndexPath() for each item in its cache.

If eChangeType is DataModelChangeType::Update, a ListView reacts to this signal by calling DataModel::data() again for every item in its cache.

Parameters
eChangeType

The type of change.

indexMapper

An index mapper that contains update information.

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

void itemUpdated (Inherited

Emitted when a data item in this DataModel has been updated.

Parameters
indexPath

IndexPath to the updated item.

BlackBerry 10.0.0
