OverviewV-Play 2 Support (Qt 5)Save all entity properties › Reply To: Save all entity properties


Thank you Chris for your solutions !
I tried with “toStoreProperties” but my application crashed :

qml: EntityManager: storeEntitesAsJson: storing entity Entity_QMLTYPE_52(0x2d4b320, "entity_switchEntity_5") of type entity and id entity_switchEntity_5
qml: EntityManager: storing property from toStoreProperties array of entity entry with value SwitchEntry_QMLTYPE_187(0x313db10, "switchEntry_switchEntry_4")
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what():  std::bad_alloc

I have this structure :
– Entity is a component specialized into SwitchEntity.
– an Entity has an EntityEntry ( specialized into SwitchEntry )

So we have
“Abstract Components”

    id: entity
    entityType: "entity"
    toStoreProperties: ["entry"]

    property EntityEntry entry

    id: entityEntry
    entityType: "entityEntry"
    variationType: "entityEntry"

    property bool saved: false
    property bool isTemplate: false
    property bool isModel: false
    property bool hasRessources: false

    property EntryProperties properties



“Concret Components”

    id: switchEntity
    entityType: "entity"
    variationType: "switchEntity"
    entry: entry

        id: image
        anchors.fill: parent
        source: "../../assets/switch.svg"

        id: entry

    id: switchEntry
    entityType: "switchEntry"
    variationType: "switchEntry"
    properties: properties

    property string type
    property int ports
    property bool isHub
    property bool stpEnabled
    property int portMirroring

    SwitchEntryProperties{id: properties}



I don’t know why it is crashing when I’m saving the level ( It happens when I want to store a component property )
I tried your first solution by putting an ItemEditor in my Scene but the data still are the same.
