[SailfishDevel] Undocumented Silica components

For things in Qt itself, keep an eye on Qt upstream. When they are part of an official Qt release (that is: stable API), then we can look at them when we upgrade.

As far as I know, nobody has yet prioritised work on either of those, and platform support is scarce, so I don’t see them happening in the immediate future.

Hi Martin,

So, we're okay with using PullDownMenu::busy and OpacityRampEffect, but we should avoid GlassItem for the moment. Right?

What about other APIs that are there but aren't allowed yet, such as QtDocGallery and QtFeedback? When can we use those in harbour?

Thanks,
Timur

Hi,

As a general rule, if it’s not documented then it isn’t public API.

The GlassItem API hasn’t been reviewed for public use. It will probably change and is not safe for use.
The busy property of PullDownMenu is documented, but the docs have not been updated in the SDK.
OpacityRampEffect has been reviewed for public use, but is not yet documented. We’ll do this asap.

Best Regards,
Martin.
