You should use an HBox inside the TileList. See this: http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/langref/mx/containers/HBox.html
<mx:HBox borderStyle="solid" paddingTop="10" paddingBottom="10" 
               paddingLeft="10" paddingRight="10"> 
            <mx:Button label="Button 1"/>
            <mx:Button label="Button 2"/>
            <mx:Button label="Button 3"/>
            <mx:ComboBox/> 
        </mx:HBox>

Tnx for answer, but i think that that is not what i am looking for.

I need items to be listed vertical, so i need this TileList or VList.
I am making my menu of 5 verticaly listed cells, in which i have one icon and text. Problem is that by default icon is above text in every cell.

Maybe this helps -  i would like my TileList elements looks like this:
|-----------------------|                    
|     [Icon] [Text 1]    |
|---------------------- |
|-----------------------|                    
|     [Icon2] [Text 2]  |
|---------------------- |
|-----------------------|                    
|     [Icon3] [Text 3]  |
|---------------------- |

instead of

|-----------------------|                    
|          [Icon]            |
|         [Text 1]          |
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|                    
|          [Icon2]          |
|         [Text 2]          |
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|                    
|          [Icon3]          |
|         [Text 3]          |
|-----------------------|

Exactly .. so inside the TileList you have to place the Icon and Text inside an HBox which will render them in the same Horizontal Line.

If you can paste your code, I can give you an example.

Hi,
Try the code attached below. You will see the creation of a custom itemRenderer with the HBox container used.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!-- Simple example to demonstrate the TileList Control. -->
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">
 
    <mx:Script>

             public var phone1:Class;
             
             [Bindable]
             [Embed(source="assets/2.jpg")]
             public var phone2:Class;
             
             [Bindable]
             [Embed(source="assets/3.jpg")]
             public var phone3:Class;
         
             [Bindable]

Hey Lex,

The solution you proposed was fantastic and really helped us out.

Unfortunately, I just encountered another problem. In cases where the text length is large and image height is also running into multiple lines the text wraps in a strange manner.

I want the wrapped text to come below the image (i.e. there would be a gap between the line that contains my image and the next line).

regards
