I have a custom UIComponent that always measures 50x50 pixels
(in the measure() function). I use the Graphics object to draw a
filled box that covers the whole area. I then draw a few circles
and add text outside of the box. I do this so that when I reference
the object, I know the (0,0) coordinate is at the top left of the
box and I dont worry about the text or circles.
Some problems occur when I draw circles only on the left
side, or when I draw a filled circle on the right side: I get an
infinitely wide filled box whose origin (0,0) is where I just drew
the circle. Ill try to post an image somewhere so you can see this
Has anyone else seen this, or is there some problem inherent
in drawing outside of an objects measurements?
not sure whether this is related but I tend to run into this
problem at bit as well end a work around seem to be to
throw a couple of .endFill()s in, even if you don't draw
anything with a fill pattern.
I haven't quite worked out what's going on but managed to fix
most of the problems I have with phantom boxes
and stuff appearing by doing this. See how you go.
This code is in the UpdateDisplayList() function of my custom
component. I commented out the drawRect function, and saw that the
phantom box still appeared in the same distinct color defined for
the code in quiestion(different than all other fills used, so I
know it is THIS fill that is the problem). And the box's
coordinates directly correlate to a line that I draw earlier. This
leads me to believe that the UpdateDisplayList function gets called
again before the end fill.
Ill try throwing in endFills, or try placing this fill code
earlier in the updateDisplayList method.
