ContentPanel panel = new ContentPanel();
panel.setStyleAttribute("background","#000000");

...

The background is never set. I also tried setting primary style attribute and using CSS to change background
and the style is never added.

Please review the components javadocs before posting something as a bug. Moving this post to help.


panel.setBodyStyle("backgoundColor:white;");

Thank god I ran into this post.
I was going nuts how to set the background color.

There needs to be more CSS examples.
In CSS it is "background-color" but here it is "backgroundColor".
For a Swing developer with minimal web development, its really hard to pick things up.

So as a general question,
whenever I see a attribute with a dash (eg. background-color), do I convert it to camel casing (eg. backgroundColor)?
