Using the Rectangle Element
The Rectangle Element is a Building Block that can be used primarily as rectangular backgrounds behind certain elements as a Text, an Image, among others. Their borders can be rectangular or rounded, and its background can be fully customized with solid colors, gradients, or images.
Use Rectangles also to create geometric shapes.
Take into account, an Overlay will be created automatically if you did not add it to the Tree after adding an element.

The Rectangle Element has a default background color and does not support nesting. As the example above you can customize it with solid color, gradient, or using a pre-defined image.
Position and Size
Position: Change the Rectangle position according to the X and Y axis (in percentage relative to the configured screen resolution).
Size: Change the Rectangle size inside the Canvas according to its width and height (in percentage relative to the configured screen resolution).
Although you can adjust the width and height inside the Canvas, you can also do this from the Inspector within the Position and Size setting, to keep consistency between elements.

Within the Inspector, you can modify the element backgrounds look and feel. It can be a solid color, a gradient, or an image.
