    UIComponent height/width

    phil1943 Level 1

      Hello, I have a custom UIComponent that directly contains graphic statements which draw a line.

       

      I am now trying to call the width and height properites of the UIComponent however they read as 0.

       

      Can someone please explain why width and height are still 0, even though I have drawn a graphics line within this UIComponent ?

       

      Thanks kindly

       

      package customComponents
      {
          import mx.core.UIComponent;

       

          public class LineUIComponent extends UIComponent {
                     
              public function LineUIComponent()
              {
                  super();
                  this.graphics.lineStyle(1,0x000000,100);
                  this.graphics.moveTo(0,0);
                  this.graphics.lineTo(100,100);
              }
