    There is nothing specific. Just check the empty string value using text property of TextField. If it is empty string, then put rectangle highlighter around the text field.



  • i need to assign a rectangle object to 'highlight' property right ?
    AFAIK textfield dont have highlight property !!

    You are right. There is no highlight property. Please note that highlighting the fields which don't have any values is our logic. We can make the component with TextField wrapped around in Rectangle. Highlight it whenever required.
