Hello, here is my problem explained with an image:
problem with positionYou can see when selecting my second button it makes a scroll-text-resize area, that should not be there.
Here is my code:
<mx:ToggleButtonBar id="mapTypeToggleButtonBar" right="5" top="5" horizontalGap="0" selectedIndex="1" fontSize="10" toggleOnClick="false" dataProvider="{mapTypeViewStack}" />
	<mx:ViewStack id="mapTypeViewStack" y="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.y + mapTypeToggleButtonBar.height}" width="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.width}" x="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.x}">
		<mx:Canvas id="mapView" label="Map" width="100%" height="100%" x="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.x}">
			<s:RadioButton id="mapTerrain" label="Terrain" fontSize="10" x="{getmapTypeToggleButtonBarSelectedButtonX(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex)}"/>
		</mx:Canvas>
		<mx:Canvas id="satelliteView" label="Satellite" width="100%" height="100%">
			<s:RadioButton id="satelliteLabels" fontSize="10" label="Labels" x="{getmapTypeToggleButtonBarSelectedButtonX(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex)}"/>
		</mx:Canvas>
	</mx:ViewStack>

Open in new window


			public function getmapTypeToggleButtonBarSelectedButtonX(value:int) : int
			{
				var i:int;
				var st:int = mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex;
				var hold:int;
				for (i = 0; i < st; i++)
					{
						hold += mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width;
					}
				return hold
			}

Open in new window


How can I fix this, or is there a simpler way?

Thank you in advance.

Added scale for the radiobutton below:
<mx:ToggleButtonBar id="mapTypeToggleButtonBar" right="5" top="5" horizontalGap="0" selectedIndex="1" fontSize="10" toggleOnClick="false" dataProvider="{mapTypeViewStack}" />
	<mx:ViewStack id="mapTypeViewStack" y="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.y + mapTypeToggleButtonBar.height}" width="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.width}" x="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.x}">
		<mx:Canvas id="mapView" label="Map" width="100%" height="100%" x="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.x}">
			<s:RadioButton id="mapTerrain"
						   x="{getmapTypeToggleButtonBarSelectedButtonX(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex)}"
						   y="2.5" label="Terrain" width="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width/3 + mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width}" scaleY="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width/satelliteLabels.width}" scaleX="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width/satelliteLabels.width}"/>
		</mx:Canvas>
		<mx:Canvas id="satelliteView" label="Satellite" width="100%" height="100%">
			<s:RadioButton id="satelliteLabels"
						   x="{getmapTypeToggleButtonBarSelectedButtonX(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex)}"
						   y="2.5" label="Labels" width="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width/3 + mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width}" scaleY="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width/satelliteLabels.width}" scaleX="{mapTypeToggleButtonBar.getChildAt(mapTypeToggleButtonBar.selectedIndex).width/satelliteLabels.width}"/>
		</mx:Canvas>
	</mx:ViewStack>

This still does not work, as when you start the application it will not scale the first visible radiobutton to correct size before you press the buttonbar so it refreshes the first button.
How can I fix this?

Is there an easier way?
