Yes, it will. I was thinking about that but got stuck trying to figuring
out how I can manage the memory since QModelIndedx does not own the
object/memory pointed by the void*
Say I allocate a QList<int64_t> and create indices with internal pointer
pointing to elements in the list. When I need to update the model from
external data, I will have to re-allocate the list and the existing
pointers will be left dangling. What is the proper steps to update the
model data in this case?
