Accepted Solution

DockLayout + leftMargin/topMargin

The following QML is intended to display an image in the top left corner, but to put 20 pixels of padding to the left and above the image.


Unfortunately, the margins seem to be ignored. Why?


import bb.cascades 1.0

Page {
    id: mainPage
    content: Container {
        layout: DockLayout {}
        ImageView {
            layoutProperties: DockLayoutProperties {
                horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Left
                verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Top
            imageSource: "asset:///images/mom_text.png"
            leftMargin: 20
            topMargin: 20

Re: DockLayout + leftMargin/topMargin

Margins will collapse at the edges, instead try adding padding to the Container:


Goodbye everybody!

Re: DockLayout + leftMargin/topMargin



I had tried topPadding and leftPadding, but had added those attributes to the ImageView rather than the container and it of course didn't work.


The reason I was thrown off is that topMargin and leftMargin do apply to the ImageView, and so I thought padding worked the same.
