List item renderer resize problem

Hi all,

I'm facing the following problem and I still don't know how to get rid of it.

Basically I have a list with a custom item renderer. The aforementioned list is hold in a HDividedBox this means the user can change the list width.

Every row in my list consists in a label on the left and an image on the right.

What I'm trying to achieve is a ellipsed label's content if the string doesn't fit in the available space. but what I got is a label which is not cut off and if there is a too long one the

image is pulled away and is not visible unless the user widens the list  dragging the divider.

Of curse even if the content fits the initial width if the user shrinks the list  the content won't be resized and the content is partially hidden.


Could you please show me how to correctly layout the components in the renderer in order to obtain the desired result?

    If you are using a separate renderer, try this


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <s:ItemRenderer xmlns:fx=""



                    autoDrawBackground="true" width="100%">


        <s:Label text="{data}" maxDisplayedLines="1" lineBreak="toFit" showTruncationTip="true" width="100%"/>

    try this:


    <s:HGroup width="100%" gap="10">


                        <s:VGroup width="80" height="90" gap="0">

                                  <mx:Image id="img" width="100%" height="80" horizontalAlign="center"/>

                                  <s:Rect width="100%" height="10">

                                            <s:fill><s:SolidColor id="statusCol"/></s:fill>




                        <s:VGroup width="100%" gap="0">

                                  <s:Label id="lblName" fontSize="20" color="#FFFFFF" width="100%" maxDisplayedLines="1" lineBreak="toFit"                                         showTruncationTip="true"/>

                                  <s:Label id="lblInfo" fontSize="14" color="#FFFFFF" width="100%" maxDisplayedLines="1" lineBreak="toFit"                                         showTruncationTip="true"/>/>



                        <s:Label id="lblPercentage" fontSize="30" width="50" color="0xFFFF00" maxDisplayedLines="1"/>
