    Button Height

      A quick question to those out there in the know,

      When you set the _height of a button component, why is it not set in pixels? Its kinda awkward to use when it isn't in pixels, I am sure the component handles the resizing of itself based on its height, but say for example I set the height to 3, it isn't 3 pixels high...

          it's a component. it's set the way the author wants.

          when you use a component you trade convenience for limited flexibility.

            In components the properties _width and _height are inherited of
            MovieClip Class and they should not be used in components, unless you
            want to distort the components.

            The setSize method resize the component correctly.

            buttonInstanceName.setSize(width, height);

            buttonInstanceName.setSize(100, 3);

            //or maintain width and resize only the height

            buttonInstanceName.setSize(buttonInstanceName.width, 3);
