Styling Flex Applications

In the next beta of Amethyst
by Huw Collingbourne
Friday 29 January 2010.

Here’s a quick preview of one of the features that will be in the next ’edge’ release of Amethyst, due for release soon...

Yup, styles...

Up to now, the visual Designer has been restricted to the display of Properties. In the next version it will also let you add Styles such as colours, gradients, images, fonts, borders and drop shadows. You can even turn rectangular components into ovals by setting corner styles.

All you have to do is select the style from a palette in Visual Studio and enter the value you wish to apply or, when dealing with colours, use the pop-up colour picker. You will be able to set styles for individual controls or for the entire application. Watch for more news and tutorials here on the Blog.
