View Full Version : Can I get rid of the space between MenuBar and menu items?

I have been trying for hours to get rid of the space between the MenuBar and its menu (menu items). This is only important/necessary for me since I've used the MenuBar to create a drop down menu. In the images below you'll see the MenuBar that I've skinned and a good old regular MenuBar. You'll notice that there is about a 1 or 2 pixel space below the MenuBar that seperates it from its menu items. That is what I need to get rid of.
MenuBar that I've skinned (notice the white line below the word Customize):
Regular MenuBar (the white line under Customize is being caused by the seperation of the MenuBar and menu items:

If only I could go in and edit the MenuBar.as to change the showMenu position.

All I have to do is move the menu (drop down items) up 1 or two pixels!

Does anyone know a solution to this?
Do I have to create a custom component and if so is there an easy way to do it? :eek:

I'm not positive, but I think you can do something like set the menuStyleName style to a menu style which has it's paddingTop set to -5 or whatever you need it to be. If that doesn't work, you can also try looping though the menuBarItems property and operate on the Menus directly.

Hope this helps,

Hey harshpandya,
It's been a while since I've Flexed but I'm pretty sure it's:

itemClick="navigateToURL(new URLRequest('http://www.adobe.com/', '_blank');">
