How to resize controls to get all width

Hi guys,


I'm trying to find a way to not hard code the width/height of the controls, was checking a way to use "USE_ALL_WIDTH" from bb4, but the method DockLayout, but the solution in this thread won't work, since I can't find DockLayoutProperties:


is there any properties like USE_ALL_WIDTH or USE_ALL_HEIGHT


So, how you guys are doing when you need a Control to get all width screen size?

Re: How to resize controls to get all width



Suppose you want to give all width to button do as below :


Container {
        layout: DockLayout {
        Button {
            id: submitButton
            text: "Submit"
            onClicked: {
            horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Fill
            verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Fill

 Dont include horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Fill inside layoutproperty.
