Can we change the background color of the App?

I've been trying to find a way to set a global style. If I could set the background color of the whole app, it would save me from having to apply that color on every page.

 

Also, setting the background color of a Container within a ScrollView, reveals a white background when you "over-scroll" the view. I'd like to eliminate this.

Re: Can we change the background color of the App?

Hello level32,

 

perhaps if you define a Common qml file and have it defined on every other Page, such as on the cascadescookbookqml sample, available on GitHub https://github.com/blackberry/Cascades-Samples/tree/master/cascadescookbookqml

 

You will find a RecipeContainer.qml file defined on the Assets/Common folder, and every other page using it.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks. As per the "over-scroll" issue, I simply put the ScrollView into a Container that has the background color set.

Re: Can we change the background color of the App?

I'm having a similar issue but it occurs when I hide the action bar. When I do so, it animates as it shrinks and exposes a white page background for brief periods. Yuck. The page contains a black backgrounded container, but that doesn't help.
