    Update scrollbar on text area?

    Handycam Level 1
      I have a text area that loads text from an XML data provider based on the selection in a tiled list:

      <mx:TextArea id="detail" width="100%" text="{tl.selectedItem.caption}" height="140" verticalScrollPolicy="on" />

      It works, but my problem is that if the text for a selectedItem is larger than the text area, a scroll thumb does NOT appear, and you cannot see the overflow text that is cut off. I only have an empty scroll bar, no scroller thumb.

      What am I missing here?
