How to pass skinclass to the custom component?

Apr 2, 2012 12:47 PM

Hi guys, I am trying to pass skinClass from my main application to my custom component. The following is my code but it gave me error saying 'Initializer for'skinType': values of tpye spark.componets.supportClasses.Skin' cannot be represented in text.  I am not sure if it's possible to do it. Any thought? Thanks a lot.



<components:loginPanel id='loginPanel' horizontalCenter="33" verticalCenter="-15"




loginPanel Component



public var skinType:Skin;



<s:Panel cornerRadius="5"


             x="32" y="8"

             width="373" height="200"

             title="Login in"

    You are trying to pass a string to match the value of a class. In SkinnableComponent skinClass property is a style.

    You should use css styles or if you want to set it runtime do something like



    private var _skinRef:Class;


    public function set skinClassRef(value:Class):void


                    _skinClassRef = value;

                    if (loginPanelComp)



                        loginPanelComp.setStyle(skinClass, skinRef);
