I'm trying to make a DropDown with columns

I'm using this code:


var dp:DropDown = new DropDown();
dp.width = 328;
dp.rowHeight = 40;
dp.rowCount = 6;
dp.setPosition(348, 150);
dp.addEventListener(Event.SELECT, Selected);
var dpp:Array = [];
dpp.push({label:"Name5\t\t 100"});
dpp.push({label:"Name25\t\t 150"});
dpp.push({label:"Name50\t\t 200"});
dpp.push({label:"Name75\t\t 300"});
dpp.push({label:"Name100\t\t 500"});
dpp.push({label:"Name200\t\t 100"});
dp.dataProvider = new DataProvider(dpp);
dp.selectedIndex = selectedName;


I trying to get the numbers to align with tabs. At first some of the numbers are aligned and some are not. If I go thru and select each item one at a time they align and stay like that. Is this a bug? Or am I doing something wrong?

Re: I'm trying to make a DropDown with columns

Try this way:




CellRenderers for dropdowns and for lists are the same, you have to make your own cell renderer to support your multicolumn fields.
