The scrollbars should appear as soon as the content within your Item exceeds the height specified by you. If you want a scrollbar to be always present, then you might want to consider creating a Scrollbar instance and targeting your VGroup with it ( I don't recall the VGroup having any built-in functionality that would help you toggle any scrollbars on it... but you might want to read up on the Adobe LiveDocs and/or Language Reference on Group / VGroup )

Groups don't have built in scrollbars. Wrap it in a Scroller to make it work. Something like this:

<ns:Item width="100%" height="100%"/>

Or, in your Item class, have a child Scroller and a child Group where the content should go.
