Flex 2 RepeatingImage Component
The ability to repeat an image across the X or Y axis is not straight forward in Flex/Flash.
is not built into the Flex Framework. This Flex component extends SWFLoader and provides two properties “repeatX” and “repeatY”, which both control which axis to repeat the image is repeated on. The underlying code uses the BitmapFill class (thx to Alex for the tip) to draw the bitmap data onto a Sprite that fills up the SWFLoader’s container’s width and height.
