[Interest] How to set UI Automation properties (AutomationId, name or classname) for QListView items?

Hi all,

A team that uses our program that uses QT (widgets), is trying to run a UI
Automation script on our program. They require that each UI element have
either an AutomationId, a name or a classname property set. I am using
Windows Inspect tool to validate this.

I am able to set a classname to mostly all objects simply by making sure
that Meta Object Compiler is doing its job by including Q_OBJECT macro to
each class deriving from QObject directly or indirectly.

I am also able to set a name, for instance to a QListView object
(ControlType UIA_ListControlTypeId is shown on Inspect tool) by calling
its setAccessibleName().

However, I am not able to access the QListView items (ControlType
UIA_ListItemControlTypeId on Inspect tool) so that I can call
setAccessibleName() or set its classname or AutomationId somehow.

Any suggestions on how to set either name, classname or AutomationId to
items created dynamically on a QListView object?
