The aim of this project is not to reinvent the wheel. Everything started when, decided to port my app developed for Symbian^3 with QtQuick Components to Symbian^1, I realized that I had to modify much code lines, most of which where of common components.
The project begins with one component, QueryDialog and will be updated each time will be added new components, as needed.
Components will be developed both in QML and Qt/C++ with the target to provide the same interface to minimize the effort.
Please check the QtQuick_Components_S1 project.


  • Download the project from here and include inside your project directory.
  • Open your .pro file and add the following lines:



#include <QtDeclarative>
#include "QtQuick_Components_S1/QueryDialog.h"
Q_DECL_EXPORT int main(int argc, char *argv[])
QScopedPointer<QApplication> app(createApplication(argc, argv));
qmlRegisterType<QueryDialog>("QtQuickS1", 1, 0, "QueryDialog");


import QtQuickS1 1.0
Rectangle {
id: mainPage
QueryDialog {
id: bannedDialog
icon: "BlacklistManager64.png"
titleText: qsTr("Daily availability reached!")
message: qsTr("You cannot set more than one contact on free version.\nSwitch to Full Version to unlock all limits ?\n\n")
acceptButtonText: qsTr("Yes")
rejectButtonText: qsTr("No")
onAccepted: {
onRejected: {

At time of writing have been implemented the following properties:

  • message
  • titleText
  • icon
  • acceptButton
  • rejectButton

The code snippet

class QueryDialog : public QObject
Q_PROPERTY(QString message READ text WRITE setText)
Q_PROPERTY(QString titleText READ titleText WRITE setTitleText)
Q_PROPERTY(QString icon READ icon WRITE setIcon)
Q_PROPERTY(QString acceptButtonText READ acceptButtonText WRITE setAcceptButtonText)
Q_PROPERTY(QString rejectButtonText READ rejectButtonText WRITE setRejectButtonText)

Work In Progress

  • CheckBox
  • ListItem
