Detailed Description

A SwitchRole is a ProxyRole that computes its data with the help of Filter. Each top level filters specified in the SwitchRole is evaluated on the rows of the model, if a Filter evaluates to true, the data of the SwitchRole for this row will be the one of the attached SwitchRole.value property. If no top level filters evaluate to true, the data will default to the one of the defaultRoleName (or the defaultValue if no defaultRoleName is specified).

In the following example, the favoriteOrFirstNameSection role is equal to * if the favorite role of a row is true, otherwise it's the same as the firstName role :

SortFilterProxyModel {
   sourceModel: contactModel
   proxyRoles: SwitchRole {
       name: "favoriteOrFirstNameSection"
       filters: ValueFilter {
           roleName: "favorite"
           value: true
           SwitchRole.value: "*"
       defaultRoleName: "firstName"
