Property Details

anchors

Enables a component to stick to a specific side of form and/or to 
grow or shrink when a window is resized. 

If opposite anchors are activated then the component with grow or 
shrink with the window. For example if Top and Bottom are activated, 
then the component will grow/shrink when the window is vertically 
resized. If Left and Right are activated then the component
will grow/shrink when the window is horizontally resized. 

If opposite anchors are not activated, then the component will 
keep a constant distance from the sides of the window which
correspond to the activated anchors.

forms['printForm'].controller.showPrintPreview()

styleClass

The name of the style class that should be applied to this component.

When defining style classes for specific component types, their names
must be prefixed according to the type of the component. For example 
in order to define a class names 'fancy' for fields, in the style
definition the class must be named 'field.fancy'. If it would be 
intended for labels, then it would be named 'label.fancy'. When specifying
the class name for a component, the prefix is dropped however. Thus the
field or the label will have its styleClass property set to 'fancy' only.
