I believe this was fixed "recently" in 220.127.116.1131; http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/SDK-24362
Do you still see this in the latest Flex 4 nightly builds? http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Download+Flex+4
i am using the latest stable version of Flex Beta 2 so i guess i ll try nightly build and check it out
and also there is another bug in it that the text input doesnt retrieve the text typed into it when it has a Skin Class specified.
i hope this one is fixed as well.
it seems the bug still exists.
i am using the build 18.104.22.16884 and the text input doesnt bind yet.
is it fixed yet
