simple rectangle in qml

Hi all, I'm trying to port an harmattan QML app.

I heavy use Rectangle that seems in not supported in cascades QML.

What can i use as a replacement? 


I've looked on Container but I can't make more container overlap?

Re: simple rectangle in qml

If you use DockLayout you can make a container in the same space as another container.

You can make Containers overlap other ways too. There's an AbsoluteLayout, and even with the default StackLayout you can set the translationX and translationY properties to adjust things. Which is suitable, if any, depends entirely on your unique situation...

Cascades doen't support many of the Digia QML elements unfortunately. The Cascades  QML elements that you will find are targetted at creating a BB10 look and feel.


If you need graphics beyond rectangle, you may find it easier to port your Harmattann app using QTCreator which can be configured to build non-cascades QML for BB10 (but you will need to create your own BB10 look & feel).
