Is there a way to make the Button bigger?

Searched the forum but couldn't find a solution.


I'm trying to make a Button bigger by setting the


preferredHeight and preferredWidth


and nothing happens.  Isn't this supported for control?

Re: Is there a way to make the Button bigger?

You can change the width, but apparently not the height. Seems there are (currently) numerous restrictions on the Cascades controls, presumably to ensure a consistent look and feel. You could always implement a custom button using images, however, if you want to go outside the box a bit.
