<hgroup>
<spark textbox>
</hgroup>
<scroller>

[______] <-text input box

 The text

I am not sure if there is some style class or propery parent child relationship that has to change :)  any help is greatly aprecaited :)

I appreciate the idea :)  The spark Text Area behaves in the same way, the issue was using x and y for location of the controls, changing to a left and top solved the problem for anyone else with the same problem
