    How to highligh a listbox item after construction

    I have an issues with highlight a list box item. I save an index and when the listbox is created I want to highlight that item. For me something is missing. Here is my code. If I click on an item then it select the item and work as usual but I would like to highligt a particular item.

    What should be changed here?

    // load the index set it to currentIndex
    countrylistView.currentIndex = SettingObject.ContrySelectedByUser();

    // list view
    id: countrylistView
    anchors.fill: parent
    width: window.width; height: window.height
    model: Editcountrylist{ id: countryModel}
    delegate: contrylistDelegate

    highlightFollowsCurrentItem : true
    highlight: Rectangle
    height: 40
    color: "lightsteelblue"; radius: 5

    highlight: highlight
    highlightFollowsCurrentItem: true
    focus: true

    Component {
    id: highlight
    Rectangle {
    height: 40
    color: "lightsteelblue"; radius: 5
    y: countrylistView.currentItem.y
    Behavior on y {
    SpringAnimation {
    spring: 3
    damping: 0.2

    Re: How to highligh a listbox item after construction


    As per the doc,
    the below is set to false. In your code its set to true.

    highlightFollowsCurrentItem: false

    The highlightItem is managed by the view unless highlightFollowsCurrentItem is set to false.

    Have you already solved this problem?
