    Default [solved] Register new type in qml file from C++...

    Hello,

    I wrote an item: LineEdit.qml, and I have another qml 'main.qml) which creates many LineEdit items.
    It works fine if I put LineEdit.qml into a directory with qmldir file etc..
    But, that causes the need to carry several files, and this is not really friendly user. I would like to make all in one file.
    main.qml is loaded into C++/Qt application.

    So, I'm looking for solution about providing the LineEdit.qml from c++ into the qml context/engine/view.
    So the first try is to save the LineEdit.qml into my application resource file, and load it into QQmlComponent, but I got the error: LineEdit is not a type.

    Is there a way to do so ? I know that it possible to define my LineEdit through c++ class (subclassing QQuickItem or QQuickPaintedItem...) but it is easier for me if I keep the LineEdit.qml file approach as I don't have to get bored with painting code...


    Thanks

    Just put it into the resource and "import" that resource path.
    If you have main.qml in the resource as well, just use the relative path.

    Cheers,
