Custom Skins For Flex Components

Posted by Sravan | January 22, 2009 .

The Yahoo! Flash Developer Center is an interesting place that often posts resourceful articles on their Yahoo! Flash Blog.

Recently, Jeffrey Bennett posted a how-to on creating custom skins for Flex components. The tutorial has four steps:

1. Creating a skin asset in Flash.
2. Creating the Flex application.
3. Authoring the stylesheet.
4. Application of stylesheet.

Bennett along with Joe Magnani developed a Yahoo! Flex skin which matches the look and feel of UI components used all over Yahoo! and is being distributed for free under the BSD license. Here is a how-to for running it and this is how it looks like.

Don’t forget to share with us any custom Flex skins you may create.
