thanks for the ti, I solved it with .

By the way it's the first time I post on this list,  I wanna let you 
know  about a pytest-qml plugin I did.

This PyTest plugin allows you to run qml tests via pytest instead of the 
C++/QtQuick test runner. It supports both PySide2 and PyQt5 >= 5.14.2 , 
using the same api as QtQuickTest.

Have a nice day
