[On Reflexion]Cool Flex Theme

How easy is it to skin a Flex application? As an experiment, Eylon Stroh[On Reflexion] tried to create something that looks like the Napkin L&F for a simple Flex app.

The application is a slightly modified version of the DataGrid sample from the Flex 2 Component Explorer. Here are the “before” and “after” screenshots (click on the screenshot to see the app):

Before:

After:

So, was it easy? He has break it down into three separate stages. The first stage involves adding CSS styles and graphical skins to the app; the second stage involves using programmatic skins; the third stage deals with subclassing Flex framework classes in order to achieve fine-grained control of the look-and-feel.

Great Work!!!

    It seems to require each individual component. But, then I agree its worth the trouble. Imagine what all we can do with this power (vested on us by Adobe) ???😉
