I was just trying out DockedPanel and noticed that the Sailfish Silica Reference documentation hosted at sailfish.org [*] is outdated. As an example, the online documentation lists a property DockedPanel::visible (real), but it's actually called visibleSize in the latest SDK (and in the docs shipped with it).

[*] https://sailfishos.org/sailfish-silica/sailfish-silica-all.html

There are some missing components from the doc too, eg. ProgressCircle and SilicaWebView. Although some components are experimental it is good to include the documentations for them too with a clear warning showing that they are experimental.

Updated Silica API documentation on sailfishos.org to match the SDK https://sailfishos.org/sailfish-silica/index.html

Please also read new guide Common Pitfalls in Sailfish Application Development in https://sailfishos.org/sailfish-silica/sailfish-application-pitfalls.html :)

Can you please provide screenshots of the UI components as part of their respective documentation?

That is a good idea. I'll write a task to our backlog. :)

Those links don't work anymore. Would you care to update them ?

Here are the updated doc links (as of June 2018): Silica: https://sailfishos.org/develop/docs/silica/ and Common Pitfalls: https://sailfishos.org/develop/docs/silica/sailfish-application-pitfalls.html/

SilicaWebView does have API documentation, but for some reason hasn't been updated on sailfishos.org. :/ Thanks for the find. :) ProgressCircle is very experimental and probably will change so I am a bit hesitant about adding the API documentation.

Means ProgressCircle is not stable to use?

For progress indication favor busy indicator or progress bar components instead.
