Description link2xt 2020-09-20 11:50:46 UTC
Created attachment 131803 [details]
Example QML file


1. Open attached example.qml with qmlscene
2. Shrink the window, so only one column ("Bar") is visible
3. Click the button


Animation is played


Page is replaced with a clone of itself immediately, without any animation. Underlying stackView .push method has "immediate" option for that: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtquick-controls-stackview.html#push-method

> Underlying stackView .push method has "immediate" option for that

This is incorrect. I have read the code again and it seems StackView has nothing to do with this bug.

PageRow contains StackView which is initialized with one layer of ColumnView. ColumnView, which is written in C++, does all the animations. In the attached example StackView always contains one item.

Because ColumnView does not have a specialized method to replace item (only addItem, insertItem, moveItem, removeItem, pop and clear), there is no way to replace item without animation.

I have been able to completely disable animation by ignoring m_shouldAnimate stored in ContentItem. ContentItem is implemented in kirigami/src/columnview_p.h.

I will try to prepare a patch adding ColumnView::replaceItem method that replaces items without animations and modify PageRow.qml to actually use it when items are replaced.

Comment 5 link2xt 2021-02-23 16:13:53 UTC
I can't test attached example with latest Kirigami because qmlscene from repositories does not run with it, but the bug remains in https://git.sr.ht/~link2xt/kdeltachat: every time chat is opened, an animation is played.

With https://invent.kde.org/frameworks/kirigami/-/merge_requests/234 it works correctly.

Do not show animation on pageStack.replace

ColumnView should replace the page without sliding animation when a page is replaced.
