  1. How would I do a Flex PopUpButton control with no border? Just the text and arrow and menu below.

    p.s. I’m a flex newbie trying to come up to speed fast and so have a lot of flex feeds I’m reading daily. But, I have to say, yours is the best, bar none, with all these examples. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks,
    Paul

  2. Henk,

    Try something like the following:

    <mx:Style>
        PopUpButton {
            popUpStyleName: myCustomPopUpStyleName;
        }
    
        .myCustomPopUpStyleName {
            borderStyle: solid;
            dropShadowEnabled: false;
            cornerRadius: 10;
            fontWeight: normal;
            textAlign: left;
            leftIconGap: 0;
        }
    </mx:Style>
    

    It *should* work, but I’m not sure how it will handle the rounded corners when you roll your mouse over an item.
