It sounds like you are using this example: http://blog.flexexamples.com/2008/03/20/creating-custom-pop-up-windows-with-the-popupmanag er-class-redux/. It works fine for me. You should not have to set layoutDirection="ltr". The global style has layoutDirection set to ltr.
Thank you for the quick reply, my reply is not as quick as yours...
Yes, I'm using the example you provided.
I've comptletely forget to tell that I must turn ON the compatibility flag for backward compatibility isseues.
It seems that turning on this sets the global style layoutDirection to rtl instead of ltr.
The problem is always reproducible starting a blank project with source downloaded from the example we are using and turning on the flag...

I see the issue now using the "Use Flex 3 Compatabolity Mode" switch. I've entered a bug which you can track using http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/SDK-26473.
Thank you Carol!
For now, a workaround is to edit frameworks/defaults-3.0.0.css and add layoutDirection: "ltr" to the global selector. I'm not sure if this will be the actual fix but I think it solves your immediate problem.
Yes, this solves the problem and it compiles with flex 3 too!
Thank you again Carol!
