    getElementPreferredWidth() not working as expected

    Francisc Level 3



      I am extending the IconItemRenderer.

      In the layoutContents overridden method, calling getElementPreferredWidth(messageDisplay) will return the full width of the renderer minus paddings, iconWidth and decorator width.


      How can I get the "real" preferred value that I normally get from calling that?

      I could use messageDisplay.textWidth, but it seems like a hack or workaround rather than solution.


      Can I reset the calculations done in the super.layoutContents()?


      Thank you.
