SplitView

You need at least Qt 5.13 and QtQuick.Controls 2.13. For older system, this might not be supported. You can use RowLayout/ColumnLayout instead if you want to lower system requirements.

SpinBox

The interface in Qt Quick Controls 2 is totally different, especially how decimals are supported. You have to rewrite the whole part following the new documentation.

TableView

You need at least Qt 5.12 and QtQuick 2.12. Note:

  1. It is from Qt Quick 2, not Qt Quick Controls 2.
  2. It doesn't support column header.
  3. It by default only support one column. To support more columns, you have to change your table model in C++.
  4. The interface is totally different.

Even though we have a TableView, but it is far from useful. In most cases, it is not even better than a ListView. If possible, use ListView instead.
