Label background colour not working in 7.1 screens



Developer tried to introduce background colors for Labels in few Cells. It is getting set properly while viewing in the Mixin, however, it does not work when the Mixin is referred.
The same does not work even when we create background Mixins.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Mixin with background color as Solid - Yellow.
2. Refer the Mixin in a new Style for label.
3. Refer the Style in a Label control in any cell of a section.

Root Cause

The reported behaviour is not supported in out-of-the-box application, it is expected one. Labels have their background colours set to transparent so that it takes the background colour of its parent element (e.g. table cell / dynamic layout).
PRPC help has an explanation in the below link, it is mentioned that additional style need to be used for specifying only CSS related to text styles.
Specify styles:
Add additional styles, specific to styling the text for this element, by specifying a CSS Attribute and Value. Specify only CSS related to text styles. ".


The requirement is to change few specific Labels background. Inline style can be used to achieve this.
