StackLayout Label spacing

Hey Developers


I have a vertical stacklayout and I was wondering if I can get the spacing between the Labels inside the stacklayout smaller.


Container {
    leftPadding: 5
    layout: StackLayout { }
    Label { 
        text: ListItemData.location
        textStyle.fontSize: FontSize.Large
    Label {
        text: ListItemData.status
        textStyle.fontSize: FontSize.Small
        textStyle.color: Color.Gray


Could not find anything in the documentation about it.


Thanks in advance

Re: StackLayout Label spacing

Try setting both margins and padding to 0. But some spacing will still be there. As a workaround set Label's translationY. It's inconvenient because Label's logical coordinates will not change, but it's currently the only method to place labels closer.
