The renderer should pick up its colors from the List that drops down.
How do I go about doing this?
In the item renderer you can do something like:
Using the name you gave to the color property.
where is the "data" coming from?
I can't seem to get those color values passed to the dropDown scrollbar and itemRenderer.. not sure why it's not working the same way as targeting, say, the dropDown button, or regular scrollbar thumbs and tracks.
Still trying to wrap my head around this new Flex stuff, sorry
if I try using setStyle on the scroller in the dropDown, the Application doesn't load. I guess it comes down to trying to pass it through "scroller" and "dataGroup" but for some reason I can't use setStyle on these?
I've even tried setting it on initialize with no luck... hmm
"data" is how you reference the dataProvider from inside the itemRenderer.
You could try setting a debug point and inspect that data.
