You would need to detect the mouse position and then you would swap the mouse with a graphic (hide mouse pointer, display your arrows). The problem would be that you could only do this while inside the air app. The edges of the actual air app I believe would have to be set by the OS. B. On Fri,

So you are trying to give them a percent width/height to fill the grid area? If so just get a total # of UIloaders, divide total width of the row - set it's width/height. If it was Flex you could use percentHeight/percentWidth (but I don't believe that is available to AS alone). hth. B. On

yep, you need some kind of scope declaration to tell you where the items are. a lot of people use thisRoot = this; (or something that states the location) and then all you have to do is pass 'thisRoot' around as a reference to where that item is. That way you never have to say 'this' when it's not

You need to go back through the steps to implement the flash flash tracer. Once I went back through the steps, the flashlog.txt reported correctly. I believe the reason it was not working was due to either a player update or installing CS3(it's been a while since I've fixed this on my systems).
