hi guys

I am using flex 3.x  , is there any way i can set the background color for a button ? I am using only <mx: tags
Right now i have <mx:Button label="Delete"  color="#000065"  />  which changes color of text only.
 But i want to change the color of the entire button, is that possible?

thanks

Use the fillColors property. It is an array of two colors for the gradient fill. If you want to have a solid background color use the same value twice. For example to get a button with red background use:

<mx:Button fillColors="[#FF0000,#FF0000]" label="Delete"/>

Open in new window


With fillAlphas you can change the alpha for the fill gradient and so for your background color. For example to get a button with opaque red background use:
<mx:Button fillColors="[#FF0000,#FF0000]" fillAlphas="[1.0,1.0]" label="Delete"/>

Open in new window
