Rows provide many style properties. The style properties are defined in the ROM Styles Specification. An element can inherit its style properties from a parent element, from a named style, or from a style that identifies the context in which the item appears. This property provides the name of the shared style to use.

This item can also set the value of style properties. Properties set on this element "override" those inherited from a parent element or a shared style.

All properties defined for a style appear as properties on report items also. See the Style element for the list of properties that appear here.
