Haven't tried it, but this wouldn't surprise me. The Google Map Flash API is a little sloppy in its design and doesn't appear to be maintained. Google is all about HTML5 now, so I don't see the situation being too likely to change.
Thank you, but it is not about Google,
it is about Flex to not break one of the most useful web component, from one of majors Adobe's ally in the conflict with Apple
So i am quite confident that the Flex team will care about this situation...
By chance, are you using the Google map component inside a popup with Flex 3 compatibility mode turned on?
Thank you for taking this into account.
I am using the Gmaps component (map_flex_1_18.swc) inside a TitleWindow that is indeed popped up (with a PopUpAnchor)
But i am also experiencing that issue inside a Panel that is not popped up.
And i don't have the Flex 3 compatibility mode turned on.
googleMap.setSize( new Point(400, 200) )
googleMap.setCenter( new LatLng(48.42, 2.68), 10)
Flex 4.0 :
Flex 4.1 :
Thank you for your investigations, the bidirectiionnal layout path seems plausible.
I just tried these workarounds, but this has not changed anything...
Thank you for that second lead, that was helpful. I found out that Google maps component is mirrored with Flex 4.1 when added (with addChild) to a SpriteVisualElement,
which was the case in my application.
Loading it first in a SkinnableContainer (with addElement), and then after reparent it inside the SpriteVisualElement resolved the issue.
