[SailfishDevel] Wrap data in Item to get notifiable properties ?

Sorry to bump this, but I think my last mail formatting was misleading.
It actually contained another question :

I see. Since I already have a ListModel for the previous view (basically, a list), I'm now wondering if I'd best :

  1. Load everything in the ListModel and just go on with it (but what about memory consumption if the ListModel is big ?) ;

or :

  2. Load the minimum amount of data in the ListModel for the ListView, and when I enter the DetailsView, load the additional data and modify the ListModel via set(...) or setProperty(...).

Or is there a (third) better way ?

Oh yes, sure ! How could I miss that one ? :(
I think I'll try to stick with the ListModel, it'll probably solve another issue :)

Best regards,
