[flexcoders] How to get the right locale in IE?

I'm trying to get the locale from IE 9. I've written the following, but it is not working as expected. In IE 9, I can add more than one language, so I can add [de], then [de_DE], then [en_US] (listed in that order). If I call 'navigator.userLanguage.toString', then IE returns en-us, even

[flexcoders] Binding from a s:Label

2012-06-15 Thread michael_regert
Just found out that you can no longer bind FROM a spark label's text TO some other object. With MX components, this could be done. Looking at the Adobe code, seems like they removed (or forgot) the binding on the text property for Spark. Is there a reason for this change, or is this a bug?

Is there an easy with a Spark Form to accomplish indentation on some of the items' labels? I'm not seeing a good way unless I write a whole new skin... I want the text input boxes left and right aligned, but want the 2nd and third items to have their label indented from the top one. Thanks!

I have, but cannot seem to make any CSS changes that cause indentation. I have tried two forms as suggested, but then the logic for the items to be aligned to the longest label fails since they're no longer in the same form so all items are not properly aligned. *sigh* Michael J. Regert
