DropShadowFilter blurX and blurY produce no effect.

<s:Rect width="152" height="152" radiusX="6" radiusY="6">

    <s:fill>

        <s:SolidColor color="#ffffff" />

    </s:fill>

    <s:filters >

        <s:DropShadowFilter alpha="1" angle="90" blurX="3" blurY="3" color="0x000000" distance="2" hideObject="false" inner="false" knockout="false" quality="3" strength="55"/>

    </s:filters>

</s:Rect>

What is wrong with this code?

My drop shadow does not blur regardless of what value is added to the blurX and blurY properties.

The same settings work fine in the Flash IDE. Creating a dropShadowFilter with as3 and applying it to a Spark component also works. Adding it with MXML results in a solid black blob that has no blurring applied.

I appreciate anyone's insight into this issue.

Am I doing something wrong or is it just another bug as usual with Adobe?

It looks like the problem is that according to Adobe, the "strength" attribute accepts an integer value between 1 and 255. So in the Flash IDE where I set up a test, setting strength to 55 produced the desired result, while setting it to "55" in as3 or in the inline mxml does NOT. In fact, setting it to "3" results in an almost completely black blob with no blur.

So I ASSUME what these jerks meant in their documentation is that it accepts a value from .01 to 2.55?

I can't stand Adobe garbage anymore. I am so sick of their broken crap.
