    MenuBar -submenu color

    markuspedro Level 1

      Hi I've some problem with setting style of menubar.

      I've two question:

      • I can change the color of menubar, but may I change the background color of submenu ?( I see them still white).
      • May I change the orientation of submenu? (for example from vertical to horizzontal and vice versa).


      Thank you

          Here is how to change the menubar item background color ..



          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

          <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"










              backgroundColor : #ff0000;







              <mx:MenuBar menuStyleName="menuBarStyle" id="myMenuBar" labelField="@label">


                      <menuitem label="MenuItem A">

                          <menuitem label="SubMenuItem A-1" enabled="false"/>

                          <menuitem label="SubMenuItem A-2"/>


                      <menuitem label="MenuItem B"/>

                      <menuitem label="MenuItem C"/>

                      <menuitem label="MenuItem D">

                          <menuitem label="SubMenuItem D-1"

                              type="radio" groupName="one"/>

                          <menuitem label="SubMenuItem D-2"

                              type="radio" groupName="one"


                          <menuitem label="SubMenuItem D-3"

                              type="radio" groupName="one"/>












          I'm not sure about #2.
