TL;DR Component jitters when being dragged to accomodate a smaller size.
Hello Everyone ,
I have a custom component that allows the user to resize it by grabbing the corners and edges. However , when the user grabs the left or top handles and decreases the width/height , the component starts to jitter. Specifically the right and bottom side. Is there anyway to stop this , I have played around with invalidating the displaylist of the component AND stage , but to no avail.
I figured it out. When working with the event-handlers , don't set the properties there. Store the present component dimensions and change them as needed. Then in one function , such as resizeFunction(x:int , y:int , width:int , height:int ):void do your invalidation and resizing and placement.
