Have you tried to change the rowCount parrametter in the Parrameters window with a smaller value??

yeah, no difference.

here is a screenshot of what it looks like:

that's strange... isn't too close to the right margin of your application ? can't you make another example just with that component and see if it works ?? I haven't seen something like that before :( :confused:

i have copied that component and pasted it into a new fla and it works fine.

the component is in the middle of the stage. do you know of any other reasons why it would do this?

i have various external swf's being loaded into the main.swf.
and using _global.styles

here is another screenshot:

I am not really in the compoenent business but can you send me the example that does not work (if it's not top secret?) ... maybe I can find something...

i figured out it something to do with the fact that the component is not on _root. its within movieclips,
any more ideas?

found out solution:

the mc where the component was in was not 100% scaled.
