Behaviour of BottomEdge and PageStack
I'm working on my first Ubuntu Touch app but sadly I've been stuck for several days. What I want to achieve is a BottomEdge component that contains a PageStack so that I can push 2 different pages that ask the user for some input. When I push the first Page onto the PageStack, the page's height is reset to 0 after (!) the page's component.onCompleted() method is executed and I can't figure out what's wrong. A more detailed explanation with code snippets is already on StackOverflow:
Maybe someone of you who's familiar with these components can help me out. I read all the relevant documentation but I can't figure out what's wrong.
If this is the wrong place to ask this kind of question, please let me know so I can close or delete it.
Thanks for reading!
@sb I'm not sure the BottomEdge can cope with a PageStack. I think it was designed to hold an element or a Page.
@sb I'm just starting with QML too so don't take anything i say as a good idea! but in the documentation it seems contentComponents width and height should be set to the parent Page width and height NOT BottomEdge.
I was still getting the same problems after changing this so I tried setting the contentComponent to a Rectangle and nesting the PageStack inside. After this, myStackPage.height no longer resets to 0.
Hope this might help
@sb I agree with @CiberSheep , I would not define a PageStack inside BottomEdge content, but only in a main view.
Probably you do not need at all pageStack because BottomEdge allow you to display a content that you should be able to set with an url (see ContentUrl in the API doc).
This is just an idea, I never use myself BottomEdge.
@irnbru Hi, sorry for replying late. I tried what you suggested and it actually works as I want it to! Thats awesome! Thank you very much for taking some time to help!
