          Maybe this can help you:



          Specifies to display the focus rectangle around the target control and positions the drop indicator where the drop operation should occur. If the control has active scroll bars, hovering the mouse pointer over the control's top or bottom scrolls the contents.

          You typically call this method from within the handler for the dragOver event.

            I had the same issue, and found this workaround :


            You can disable autoscroll by creating your own component and overriding the dragScroll() method :




            package {

                  import mx.controls.List;


                      public class NoDragScrollList extends List


                                public function NoDragScrollList()





                                protected override function dragScroll():void {

                           //do nothing






            Solved my issue.


            Hope this helps,
