    Background images in HBoxes and VBoxes

    doctorshake Level 1

      I've been building a page in mxml and wanted to include a background images for the components of some of the mx:HBox and mx:VBox elements I'm using. Looking around online it seems that a property 'backgroundImage' would be what I would need to set however I keep getting errors that no such property exists. Is this something that has changed in Flex 4 or am I missing something?

       

      Thanks for any help.

          To create a background for an HBox you could do something like this:

           

          <s:VGroup width="200" height="400" >

               <s:BorderContainer width="100%" height="100%" backgroundImage="{someEmbededImage}" >

           

                    <mx:HBox width="100%" height="100%" >

                         <!-- Put HBox items in here -->

                    </mx:HBox>

           

               </s:BorderContainer>

          </s:VGroup>
