QML Basic Types: More information is needed.
In the QML documentation, “QML Basic Types” has been described or mentioned several times. But to me none appears to be complete. There are 2 important missing pieces of information for each basic type:
1. What is the corresponding Qt class type (or C++ type)?
2. Can it be used as invokable function return type, invokable function argument, signal function argument, property type?
A more complete table like the following would be more helpful to Qt application developers:
QML type, Description, Qt type, Used as property?, Used in functions?
point, A point type has x and y attributes, QPoint, No, Yes
Do we have this type of table?
The closest table I know of is http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/qml-extending-types.html#supported-property-types
I’d suggest adding a note with the suggested information to http://developer.qt.nokia.com/doc/qt-4.7/qdeclarativebasictypes.html, and/or raising a suggestion in the bug tracker [bugreports.qt.nokia.com]
