Flex allows you to specify percentages (instead of pixel dimensions) for a component's heigh and width. This allows them to resize when the browser window is resized. This doesn't change their position, only their size. HTH
Is there anyway to change the position?
Override updateDisplayList of your container and write your own sizing an positioning code.
The method will give you the unscaledWidth and unscaledHeight of the component as arguments.
In such situations it is not uncommon to use getMeasuredOrExplicitHeight()/getMeasuredOrExplicitWidth() to find out the height of your children.
Does this help?
Yes, there are styles that affect position as well.
Do you know what those styles are?
