In the flex 4 cookbook. for example 6.5 Skin a spark container. I've just downloaded the examples for the book. If you run the fxp from the download its fine. Looking at the code it didn't make sense (and the book didn't help) so I copied/pasted the code into a new flex 4 project and it does not work.
So how does for example 6.5 work? Look at it, where does the skin get its height?

My apologies.... It was FlashBuilders fault. Dam it!!!
I have again after restarting FB created a new project and copied/paste code from example download. This time it works exactly as the demo project (as expected). I still don't get how or where the skinnableContainer gets its height, but I imagine thats a question for another forum.
We're glad to hear the issue was resolved!
