Chapter 13: Applying behaviors, transitions, and filters (PDF, 654K)

All Flex visual components have a standard set of graphic filters and effects that let you create really expressive applications with minimal effort. Effects are auditory or visual changes to components, typically an animation of some form. Filters are static visual changes such as blurring or drop-shadows. In this chapter, you’ll discover how incredibly easy it is to apply visual effects to your components with simple MXML.

Chapter 14: Styling applications (PDF, 2.7MB)

Flex comes with a powerful and extensible framework of components. The framework isn’t bound to any one style or look. The Flex components do come with a default look and feel, but you can easily change them using styles. You have the ability to quickly modify specific style properties of individual components or even create styles that can be applied to all components. Using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), you can create reusable styles that let you make major changes to the look of your applications. You can even use custom graphics.

Thank you, Adobe!
