I'm using Flash Builder 4 and using it's DateField control, but starts having scroll problem if the date set before of 01/01/1900. At that time I can only able to scroll upwards but not downwards. If I start the control with initial 01/01/1900 value then I may not downward below that but no scrolling problems happening. It seems the control can't navigate below the date of 01/01/1900. Is it by any purpose, or standardization perhaps (?) It is why.
You have to set the minYear or maxYear property if you want to customize the Datefield.
Example: <mx:DateField minYear="1492" maxYear="3020" />
