hey guys... so i htink this is a bug... not sure tho... all im trying to do is add a form to my BorderContainer... and for some reason when i have
<formItem label="Image Id"><TextInput /></formItem>
all i see is "U..." instead of "User Name" as the label... any ideas on how to fix this??
this same problem happens again when i try to use a link button, but when i hover over the link button then i can see the whole word...
I have the following code if you want to replicate the bug..
<s:Group width="100%" height="100%"> <s:PopUpAnchor id="detailsPanel" popUpPosition="below" styleName="popUpBox"> <s:BorderContainer width="793" height="700"> <s:backgroundFill> <s:SolidColor color="#ffffff" /> </s:backgroundFill> <mx:Form labelWidth="100"> <mx:FormItem label="User Name"> <mx:TextInput id="userNameInput"/> </mx:FormItem> <mx:FormItem label="Password"> <mx:TextInput id="passwordInput"/> </mx:FormItem> <mx:FormItem label="Re-enter Password"> <mx:TextInput id="rePasswordInput"/> </mx:FormItem> </mx:Form> </s:BorderContainer> </s:PopUpAnchor> </s:Group>
It looks to me like truncation which is a feature of any component which extends from TextBase class. Truncation occurs when the container width is lesser than that of the text.
This should give some more info on truncation. I am not really sure. But I suspect there is something about the widths of the parent containers which is causing this to happen for u. I'm just hazarding a guess. Hope this helps
