Posted (edited) · QML TextArea for QT6


I'm trying to migrate a plugin that I use in version 4.X but that had not been updated to version 5.  In the QML files the plugin defines some items as: TextArea 

In QT5 version I have scrollbars and mouse selection: 





With QT6 this doesn't work anymore ...  How can we get back these properties or how to replace these items ?


Source code of the qml File for QT 6 :  https://github.com/5axes/CuraLiveScriptingPlugin/blob/master/qml_qt6/LiveScripting.qml

    OK the solution Change from TextArea to   Cura.ScrollableTextArea

        Cura.ScrollableTextArea {
            id: inputfg
            width: parent.width
    			top: parent.top
    			bottom: runOptions.top
            // font.family: "Courier New"
            textArea.wrapMode: Text.Wrap 
    		textArea.textFormat : Text.PlainText
            textArea.text: UM.ActiveTool.properties.getValue("Script")
            textArea.onTextChanged: {
                UM.ActiveTool.setProperty("Script", text)
            Keys.onPressed: {
                if (event.key == Qt.Key_Tab) {
                    insert(cursorPosition, "    ");
                    event.accepted = true;

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
