Adding image as a background for a List Cells

Hi Guys,

 

I am creating kind of bookshelf with TileList but I have been unsuccessful at using a blank book image as background for cells.

 

I tried

 

this.addChildAt(this.bg,0) but it doesn't display it as background and when I try

 

this.addChild(this.bg) then the label gets hidden behind the image.

 

So, please suggest me to implement this in a correct way.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Adding image as a background for a List Cells

Hi Guys,

 

I fixed this by doing following

 

override protected function init():void
        {
            super.init();
            this.bg=new Image;
            this.bg.setImage("assets/book.png");
            this.addChild(this.bg);
            this.setChildIndex(this.label,this.numChildren-1);
        }

 

But Now the question is how would I create shelf which would be visible in padding?
