Detailed Description

As QML uses Qt’s meta-type system all of the existing QMetaObject classes can be used to introspect and interact with objects created by QML. However, some of the new features provided by QML - such as type safety and attached properties - are most easily used through the QQmlProperty class that simplifies some of their natural complexity.

Unlike QMetaProperty which represents a property on a class type, QQmlProperty encapsulates a property on a specific object instance. To read a property’s value, programmers create a QQmlProperty instance and call the read() method. Likewise to write a property value the write() method is used.

For example, for the following QML code:

The Text object’s properties could be accessed using QQmlProperty , like this:

#include <QQmlProperty>
#include <QGraphicsObject>

...

QQuickView view(QUrl::fromLocalFile("MyItem.qml"));
QQmlProperty property(view.rootObject(), "font.pixelSize");
qWarning() << "Current pixel size:" << property.read().toInt();
property.write(24);
qWarning() << "Pixel size should now be 24:" << property.read().toInt();

Parameters

Create an invalid QQmlProperty .

Creates a QQmlProperty for the default property of obj. If there is no default property, an invalid QQmlProperty will be created.

Creates a QQmlProperty for the default property of obj using the context ctxt. If there is no default property, an invalid QQmlProperty will be created.

Creates a QQmlProperty for the default property of obj using the environment for instantiating QML components that is provided by engine. If there is no default property, an invalid QQmlProperty will be created.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.PropertyTypeCategory

This enum specifies a category of QML property.

Constant

Description

QQmlProperty.InvalidCategory

The property is invalid, or is a signal property.

QQmlProperty.List

The property is a QQmlListProperty list property

QQmlProperty.Object

The property is a QObject derived type pointer

QQmlProperty.Normal

The property is a normal value property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.Type

This enum specifies a type of QML property.

Constant

Description

QQmlProperty.Invalid

The property is invalid.

QQmlProperty.Property

The property is a regular Qt property.

QQmlProperty.SignalProperty

The property is a signal property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.connectNotifySignal(dest, slot)
Parameters
Return type

bool

Connects the property’s change notifier signal to the specified slot of the dest object and returns true. Returns false if this metaproperty does not represent a regular Qt property or if it has no change notifier signal, or if the dest object does not have the specified slot.

Note

slot should be passed using the SLOT() macro so it is correctly identified.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.connectNotifySignal(dest, method)
Parameters
Return type

bool

Connects the property’s change notifier signal to the specified method of the dest object and returns true. Returns false if this metaproperty does not represent a regular Qt property or if it has no change notifier signal, or if the dest object does not have the specified method.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.hasNotifySignal()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the property has a change notifier signal, otherwise false.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.index()
Return type

int

Return the Qt metaobject index of the property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isBindable()
Return type

bool

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isDesignable()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the property is designable, otherwise false.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isProperty()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this QQmlProperty represents a regular Qt property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isResettable()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the property is resettable, otherwise false.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isSignalProperty()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this QQmlProperty represents a QML signal property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isValid()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the QQmlProperty refers to a valid property, otherwise false.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.isWritable()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the property is writable, otherwise false.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.method()
Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QMetaMethod

Return the QMetaMethod for this property if it is a SignalProperty , otherwise returns an invalid QMetaMethod .

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.name()
Return type

str

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.needsNotifySignal()
Return type

bool

Returns true if the property needs a change notifier signal for bindings to remain upto date, false otherwise.

Some properties, such as attached properties or those whose value never changes, do not require a change notifier.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.object()
Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QObject

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.__eq__(arg__1)
Parameters

Returns true if other and this QQmlProperty represent the same property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.property()
Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QMetaProperty

Returns the Qt property associated with this QML property.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.propertyMetaType()
Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QMetaType

Returns the metatype of the property.

Return type

PropertyTypeCategory

Returns the property category.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.propertyTypeName()
Return type

Returns the type name of the property, or 0 if the property has no type name.

PySide6.QtQml.QQmlProperty.read()
Return type

object

Returns the property value.

Return type

bool

Resets the property and returns true if the property is resettable. If the property is not resettable, nothing happens and false is returned.
