Larger TextField control



I'm using the latest Gold SDK for C++ Cascades development on BB10. It appears that the standard TextField is a fixed height. It doesn't seem to fill up the parent. Is there any way I can create a textfield control where I can adjust the height so that the text can scale to the vertical height of the parent otherwise its looking odd. I can't use a label as I need the keyboard to come up.

Re: Larger TextField control

This is in the API doc for TextField:


The height is fixed, so the properties Control:Smiley TonguereferredHeight, Control::minHeight and Control::maxHeight are not used.
