Detecting browser window border in a scrolling container

I am building a balloon tooltip and the tooltip got cut off by the flash player's border when the target component was scrolled close to the border of browser window so I want to position the balloon according to the distance between target component and window's border in a scrolling environment to avoid the tooltip overlap with borders.


I have two major issues:

1). since the target component (that trigger the tooltip) is in a scrolling container so localToGlobal didn't tell me too much about where the target component is.

2). I draw and position my balloon in updateDisplayList so I didn't have mouse event access ...


Any suggestion will be appreciated.

I understand the problem but sorry I can't help until I can see the code. Please paste the code.

Question in a different way: how can I measure the real visual distance between the border of flash player and a component in a scrollable container?

thanks
