  1. field-name identifies the name of the screen record field.
  2. item-name identifies the form element (name attribute in .42f)
  3. resource is the image resource, see Providing the image resource.
  4. attribute-list defines the aspect and behavior of the form item.

Usage

Define the rendering and behavior of an image stack item, with a IMAGE element inside a STACK container.

Note: The IMAGE stack item can be used inside a stack container like a group, or as root element of the STACK container: When used directly under the STACK container, the IMAGE stack item must be the only element in the container. It will be rendered a scalable form item that can stretch to fit the front-end screen size.
