View Full Version : Problem with attaching ComboBox in multi movieClip

Hi There,

It's my first time to come here and also use FLash. ^^
IT's amazing when using Flash, especially the interactiveness.

But I found a problem when using Combo Box component in MX 2004 Pro. The problem is about the scroll bar and size of Combo Box.

When I first attach one movie(say, movieA) into _root, then add one more( movieB) just above movieA. Inside the movieB, I attach a Combo Box whose data and label will be fullfilled at runtime (by actionscripts). there is no problem when filling the data for ComboBox, but the scroll bar misallocated and with error in display, the only way I can select the item is by using mouse wheel to roll down the list.

THe screen cap is like this

There are 8 items for this combo box, scroll bar mis display

when drag the base movie (i.e. movieB) to right, it show more scroll bar

I try to attach the combo box in base movie, movieA, and found no problem. Can anyone tell me how I can fix the problem? Show where I can get answer is also welcome. Thanks in advanced. :)

It's all a bit hard see without an example, post it in a zip. It could perhaps be some naming conflict, but other then that I don't know right now.

have you made any changes in the size in the property panel of the component??
if so, reset it and do this with the scaleX and the scaleY properties, or do as Stimpsom's said and post the fla
