Setting the height of an input field to for example 14
assumes there is enough space for the text, but half of the bottom
of the text is obscured, rendering it useless. I wonder if there is
a way in CSS or otherwise to eliminate this whitespace so I don't
need to increase the height of the input field. What's bothering is
that there seems to be plenty of space, and what's more, it seems
such a simple issue, but haven't found a solution.
It's not the baseline, not the padding, it doesn't seem to be
one of the obvious parameters.
It's just a plain TextInput
<mx:TextInput y="10" x="568" width="117" height="14"/>
