How to vertically centre text in a Picker

Hi,

 

I have a custom picker and am not able to set the text to be centred. Here is my QML :

 

Picker {
            title: "Every"
            dataModel: XmlDataModel {
                source: "asset:///RecurrencePicker.xml"
            }
            pickerItemComponents: [
                PickerItemComponent {
                    type: "option"
                    content: Container {
                        verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Fill

                        horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Fill
                        Label {
                            verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Center
                            horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Center
                            text: pickerItemData.value.toString();
                        }
                    }
                },
                PickerItemComponent {
                    type: "value"
                    
                    content: Container {
                        verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Fill
                        preferredHeight: 150
                        horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Fill
                        Label {
                            
                            verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Center
                            horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Center
                            text: pickerItemData.num.toString();
                        }
                    }
                }
            ]
        }  

 I tried with and without setting preferred height on container and label, but it doesn't seem to work. 

 

Any ideas?

Set the container to a DockLayout.
