We have an application (Flex 1.5) in which we create multiple
pods within a
VDividedBox container. Each pod is essentially a HBox with
charts (mx:BarChart and mx:PieChart) for arguments sake.
When a pod is deleted from the container the vertical area of
in the remaining child pods that responds to mouse over and
is diminished by around the height that the child gained.
For example, if there were three pods and one was removed
child gains roughly 1/2 of the height of the removed pod and
roughly this area from the bottom of the chart (above the
no longer responds to mouse over and mouse click events.
The problem goes away when adding a new pod.
Using a VBox instead of VDividedBox makes no difference.
the size of the last pod very small using the grips of the
VDividedBox causes the same symptoms.
Calling invalidateLayout, invalidateSize, layoutChildren,
the container and all of the pods has no effect, resetting
height to "100%" has no affect. All of the same on the two
within the pod has no effect.
It appears to be a problem in the way the chart components
calculating the area of the chart that should respond to
and click events.
Any ideas, suggestions on possible workarounds, etc. very
