Detailed Description

Item (and all derived types) provides built in support for states and transitions via its state, states and transitions properties. StateGroup provides an easy way to use this support in other (non-Item-derived) types.

MyCustomObject {
    StateGroup {
        id: myStateGroup
        states: State {
            name: "state1"
            // ...
        }
        transitions: Transition {
            // ...
        }
    }
    onSomethingHappened: myStateGroup.state = "state1";
}

Property Documentation

state : string

This property holds the name of the current state of the state group.

This property is often used in scripts to change between states. For example:

function toggle() {
    if (button.state == 'On')
        button.state = 'Off';
    else
        button.state = 'On';
}

If the state group is in its base state (i.e. no explicit state has been set), state will be a blank string. Likewise, you can return a state group to its base state by setting its current state to ''.

states : list<State>

This property holds a list of states defined by the state group.

StateGroup {
    states: [
        State {
            // State definition...
        },
        State {
            // ...
        }
        // Other states...
    ]
}

transitions : list<Transition>

StateGroup {
    transitions: [
        Transition {
          // ...

          // ...
