    Menubar with icon on right side? Please Help!


      The standard Flex menubar item renderer puts the icon on the left side with the label extending the rest of the way.  How can I get the icon on the right, with the text centered (in my measure function, I put a constant width for the item).


      note: it works if I set the labels actual size in update display list, but if I change the dataprovider in anyway, it does some very unnecessary redrawing (flashing).


      some code from my menubar item renderer:


      Any help would be greatly appreciated!


      override protected function measure():void
                  measuredWidth = BAR_WIDTH;
              override protected function updateDisplayList(unscaledWidth:Number, unscaledHeight:Number):void
                  super.updateDisplayList(unscaledWidth, unscaledHeight);

                     //Center the label
                  label.y = (unscaledHeight - label.height) / 2;
                  label.x = (unscaledWidth - label.width) / 2;

                     //Add icon
                  if(downArrowImage != null)
                      downArrowImage.y = (unscaledHeight - downArrowImage.height)/2;
                      downArrowImage.x = arrowSpacer + label.x + label.width;
