Please post the whole component code for us to debug. when i ran this , it worked Ok with height as 36
I have created an empty project pasted your code in and the height I get for hgroup is 36. can you zip your project and attach it please
Please excuse my noobness. As I was zipping up the project to upload I realized it was a PEBKAC and it is working fine. Your question prompted me realized my mistake. Your help is much appreciated as I learn Flex, thank you!
