Dees someone now, how to create a note programmatically in a QML based app? There are two use cases:

  1. Opening the notes app with a new note like the shortcut in the top menu
  2. Saving a note in the notes app database or file storage. I'm not sure, which storage approach the notes app uses.

jolla-notes seem to have a normal sqlite database i the folder '/home/nemo/.local/share/jolla-notes/QML/OfflineStorage/D atabases' [nemo@Sailfish Databases]$

@Rikujolla Thanks. So I need to reverse engineer the database model and have to use an SQL statement? Is ther a Qt API wrapper for sent SQL statements?

For use case 1 I have found the following approach with DBus:

First I used the following import statement in my QML file:

import Nemo.DBus 2.0

Then I defined an item in the QML file:

DBusInterface {
    id: notes
    service: "com.jolla.notes"
    path: "/"
    iface: "com.jolla.notes"

Finally I called the following method:"newNote", [])

It might be trivial for most community members. However some beginners might be interested
