    Any suggestions for "button-plus-dropdown"?

    whertzing
      Many UIs have a button attached to a small "down-arrow" on it's right; clicking the downarrow causes a drop down panel to appear with check boxes or radio buttons, that allows you to modify the behaviour of the button when pressed.

      Are there any ideas out there for a way to create a similar control for Flex? I have a "GetDataButton", and I want to let a user select one of two options "GetDataFromCache" and "GetDataFromSourceandUpdateCache". I would prefer not to waste the real estate on two seperate buttons...

          Do a search of the Help for PopUpMenuButton. Or ComboBox may be what you
          want.

            Thanks very much. The PopUpMenuButton was just what I was looking for.
