I tried some MXML and AS ItemRenderers. I simply extended the
mx:Canvas or mx:VBox and placed mx:Text or mx:Label inside. This
worked more or less....
I could set the backgroundColor property of the canvas as I
wanted to, BUT:
There seems to be some sort of padding between the actual
borders or the item in the dropdown and its itemrenderer. This has
the effect that my e.g. red Canvas gets a gray border (left and
right it is thicker than top and bottom.
I can not get rid of that?
Has anybody an idea? DO I need to extend another control or
