Hey I have a problem. I have a component (BigView) that contains another component (SmallView) which is composed of 3 HBoxes. Two of the 3 HBoxes are drawn immediately. Then through user actions the third HBox becomes necessary. At that point the third box is drawn and you can see the other 2 HBoxes be redrawn.
Basically Is there a way I can force the BigView component to draw all children and size them appropriately. I have tried "creationPolicy="all"" but it still fails.
Nevermind , turns out a top-level HBox didnt have a size declared , so Flex was sizing it as needed.
<mx:HBox> = bad
<mx:HBox width="100%" height="100%"> = good
