Change textSize of label from customControl

Hey All, trying to change the textsize of a label in a custom control. Typically I just use a property alias to define the property from the customControl that I want to change but in this case the alias textSize: label.textStyle.size is clearly not going to work, is there any way to accomplish this? Thanks.

Re: Change textSize of label from customControl

Have you tried this ? :




        property alias textSize: tsd.size


        Label {
                base: tsd.style
            attachedObjects: [
                     id: tsd
                     base: SystemDefaults.TextStyles.BodyText
                     fontWeight: FontWeight.Bold
        } //Label




Hope this works for you !
