Property Documentation

background : Item

This property holds the background item.

Note: If the background item has no explicit size specified, it automatically follows the control's size. In most cases, there is no need to specify width or height for a background item.

Note: Most controls use the implicit size of the background item to calculate the implicit size of the control itself. If you replace the background item with a custom one, you should also consider providing a sensible implicit size for it (unless it is an item like Image which has its own implicit size).

See also Customizing TextField.


focusReason : enumeration

This property holds the reason of the last focus change.

Note: This property does not indicate whether the control has active focus, but the reason why the control either gained or lost focus.
