Specifies how and if an image should be repeated within a container.
Fill: stretches the image to fit assigned area without preserveing image's aspect ratio
X: image is repeated along X-axis and is stretched in the Y-axis direction
Y: image is repeated along Y-axis and is stretched in the X-axis direction
XY: image is repeated along X-axis and Y-axis
If repeat is set and the area dimensions are not exact multiples of the source image dimensions, the final images in the repeat sequence will be cut off in order to preserve the area.
The provided image must also have a width and height that is a power of two in order to be tileable (for example, 4x4, 8x8, 16x16, 32x32, 64x64, 128x128, 256x256, 128x64, 32x16). It also needs to have the "repeatable: true|false" property set in the asset metadata file. The asset metadata file is an .amd file with the same name as the image itself. This file can also contain nine-slicing attributes, however the tiling of nine-sliced images is not currently supported.
Here's an example of an .amd file called tiled_image.amd that has the repeatable property set to true.

The different repeat methods.
- Fill 0x0
Image is stretched to fill the area without preserving aspect ratio.
- X 0x1
Image is repeated along the X-axis, stretched along Y-axis.Since:
- Y 0x2
Image is repeated along the Y-axis, stretched along X-axis.Since:
- XY 0x3
Image is repeated along both the X- and Y-axis.Since:
