Have you read about recycling renderers on my blog?
Thanks for your response.
I looked at your blog... I'm assuming you meant the blog at http://blogs.adobe.com/aharui/item_renderers/
I'm not using custom ItemRenderers, just a standard List and using an XML collection as the dataSource. I understand that item renderers are recycled, but I guess what I don't quite get is that if I call the List's scrollVertically() function, shouldn't the List be updating the item renderers on its own when the list moves up and down? If not, what is the recommended way of updating the renderers.
If you want to scroll the list, don't call scrollVertically. Set
verticalScrollPosition or call scrollToIndex
That did the trick. I'm still in that Java mentality of "to change the attribute, invoke the method" mentality.
Thanks for your help!
