      Description

      A common problem for controls is that when the business logic is implemented in a C++ "base" type and the visual parts in a QML "sub" type, enum values provided by the C++ type cannot be accessed by the QML type name.

      Example: a TextField control that inherits QQuickTextInput.

      // TextField.qml
      TextInput {
          id: control
          implicitWidth: ...
          implicitHeight: ...
          Rectangle {
              id: background
              z: -1
          }
      }
      

      Application code cannot use eg. TextField.Password but must use TextInput.Password instead:

      TextField {
          // echoMode: TextField.Password // "ReferenceError: TextField is not defined"
          // vs.
          echoMode: TextInput.Password // :(
      }
