Use Custom Controls with Flex

Hi,

I like to use different styles for different Buttons.
For sure I can use skinClass to asign a style to a Button.

But I like to do this with CSS, as I use it for the Spark Button:
s|Button
{
      skinClass: ClassReference("iskins.MainStyle");
}

So is it possible to make custom controls inherit from the main Spark Button and realize something like this:
S|otherButton
{
      skinClass: ClassReference("iskins.OtherStyle");
}

in XML:
<s:otherButton ..../>

No need for exact this way I just need diefferent Buttons in any way ...

Thanks,

Andre

If it's simply a differen Skin you want to have for different Buttons, there's an easier way to do it.
I would suggest to stick with the simple s:Button and to set differnt:

In my CSS I for example have:
s|Button {
    skinClass: ClassReference("spark.skins.spark.ButtonSkin");
}

s|Button.panelButton {
    skinClass: ClassReference("de.cware.cweb.projects.ee.skins.thesurface.buttons.ButtonSkin");
}

Open in new window


In my components I can use the styleName attribute to control which skin it will have.

This code will make the button get styled with the default Button skin;
<s:Button label="My Button"/>

Open in new window


And this one will use the alternate skin:
<s:Button label="My Button" styleName="panelButton"/>

Open in new window


Hope this was what you were looking for.

Thanks Christofer I think this is a good solution and as it's very simular to HTML/CSS I think is easy to handle for a novice ...
I'll give it a try
