Silly question but, isn't it the case that (in your first example) the first button (newFancyButton) doesn't actually move when you switch layouts?
e.g. In both Horizontal case and Vertical case, it's the first button, so it stays in upper left of the group.
If you move the move event handler to the button below it (another Button) it gets called fine...or if you simply add another element (like you did with mx:Button) first in the list, successive button's move handler will get called..because they actually change position when you switch from the horizontal to vertical layout (but not first button).
Jesuz! I feel sad now.
Is there a way to remove this thread nobody should see it :-)
Thanks that`s it
No worries. That's why the forums are here...some times it helps to get a second set of eyes to avoid pulling your hair out.
