This page contains a list of issues and required features that we would like to see fixed/implemented in QML(2)

Enter the issues you wish fixed in the following form:

Idea: Change QML2
Summary: We have a chance to change stuff now
Proposed solution: We change things
Discussion: http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2011/05/09/thoughts-about-qt-5/

Issues

Idea: QtScript integration
Summary: a way to expose from c++ to qml QScriptValues, register non qobject data types and functions
Proposed solution:
Discussion:
Idea: Improved namespace support
Summary: QML should support namespaces in property types (property MyWidgets.Button myProperty)
Proposed solution:
Discussion:
Idea: Improved runtime warnings
Summary: For example: QML should complain when the drag target is invalid
Proposed solution:
Discussion:
Idea: No QtSql dependency
Summary: Remove QtSql dependency from QML library: QtSql should be loadable at runtime
Proposed solution:
Discussion:

Required features

Idea: C++ hooks to intercept import statements
Summary: different ways to resolve pathnames of imports, as well as basic security features are needed
Proposed solution: if the pathname resolution could be reimplementable in a custom c++ function, would be possible to resolve them differently (for instance implementing a fallback chain) or implement basic security features (for instance blacklisting or whitelisting of imports)
Discussion:
Idea: MouseEvent.globalX/Y
Summary: MouseEvent should also expose globalX and globalY
Proposed solution: adding those properties to the declarative mouse event would be source compatible for existing qml files
Discussion:
Idea: primitive types for icons, pixmaps and images
Summary: The qdeclarativeimageprovider approach is not enough in both terms of flexibility and performance
Proposed solution:
Discussion:
Idea: sizeHint
Summary: sizeHint support
Proposed solution:
Discussion:
Idea: Layouts
Summary: Layouts
Proposed solution: current positioners could have an optional property to resize childs that have minimum/maximum/preferredWidth or height not null
Discussion:
Idea: Full set of graphical primitives
Summary: at least Line, Path, Ellipse are missing
Proposed solution:
Discussion:
