Detailed Description

A ScrollView can be used either to replace a Flickable or decorate an existing Flickable. Depending on the platform, it will add scroll bars and a content frame.

Only one Item can be a direct child of the ScrollView and the child is implicitly anchored to fill the scroll view.

Example:

ScrollView {
    Image { source: "largeImage.png" }
}

In the previous example the Image item will implicitly get scroll behavior as if it was used within a Flickable. The width and height of the child item will be used to define the size of the content area.

Example:

ScrollView {
    ListView {
        ...
    }
}

In this case the content size of the ScrollView will simply mirror that of its contained flickableItem.

You can create a custom appearance for a ScrollView by assigning a ScrollViewStyle.
