    Invisibility of components outside the bounds of a container

    William Spence Level 1

      I am new to flex, so I apologize if this is a simple question.  I have created several components that I have placed inside of a Group Container in my application. The Group container does not fill up the whole application.  I want to be able to slide components outside of the "width" and "height" parameters of the Group container and no longer be visible, almost like the container was a viewport.  I created a simple application as an example.  I have created a button inside of a group container in the application, but moved the x and y coordinates of the button outside of the bounds of the group container.  What do I need to do to make it so that you can no longer see the button when it is outside the bounds of the container?  Thanks.
