I have several views in my project, each with several nested
containers which are scaled using percentages. In one of my views,
when I reduce the height of the outermost panel and the vertical
scrollbar appears, the inner content is shifted over to make room
so it's still all displayed. This is what I want. In another view,
the scrollbar covers up the rightmost strip of content instead of
shifting it over.
Does anybody know why this is?
If you need to see code I can post it but it's kind of
Scrollbar behavior can be difficult. I know that allowing the
the scrollbar to obscure content was a conscious decision on the
part of the Flex engineers. I cannot explain why you have different
behavior in different places.
Whenever I have scroll bar issues (which is almost every
app), I start by explicitly turning off horizontal and
verticalScrollPolicy on *ALL* containers (I wish they were off by
default) then I choose where I want the scrolling and enable them
there, and adjust my container sizing as needed.
