in the above example you have:
a parent container of type VBox
1 of type HBox
1 of type VBox
obviously the 2 children mentioned above have children, we're not worrie dby these for the purpose of this post, (although in case it holds some weight they are mx:Images and mx:Text objects)
I want the 2 to touch, only on the top (the parent will effectively be repeated with different values) sharing the border, so not a double think line (although this is ok if its unavoidable)
I have tried everything I can think of but cant get it to work. Ideally I dont want to create an entire seperate style object for it, that just seems alot of work for something that should be so simple
To make the 2 children of the VBox touch just write <mx:VBox verticalGap="0"
Brilliant, thank you so very much!
didnt even know that attribute existed
