Seems to me like the problem really has something to do with how a background image is being positioned in Flex. It always seems to be centered.
Anybody else have any more information on this?
I came across the same problem and can't find an answer nowhere. Have you found any solutions or another way to this?
Still waiting for someone else to weigh in on the topic.
I solved the issue in the mean time with designing a background graphic that has the size of my application dimensions.
...same problem. Design view isn't browser view. I selected "no repeat" (CS3). I also tried to drag the image to fit.
However, the design window doesn't seem to be the dimension of what visitors to my pages will be viewing.
How do I know what dimensions to set in the Property Inspector?
What's your problem?
