Visual skinning for spark components

Dec 29, 2013 12:28 AM

Hi. I am a newbie doing the flex in a week course. It is so easy to set up datagrids but they look awful. This is incredibly important for my company. Skins must look good BUT I just read the flash catalyst is discontinued. What software can I use now to skin my components. I would love to be able to achieve the folowing look you can see here: http://www.desire2learn.com/products/learning-environment/features/mea sure-guide/

Half way down you can see the type of datagrid I am looking for. Nothing fancy really.

Cheers in advance

 

edit: I just had an idea.

 

You can use any design software to lay out a mock up then just use the x and y properites and colours and shove them in you mxml file fot the skinning. voilá.

Is that a good workflow?

 

edit: Just read that people are using fireworks to design and to export to css.

 

Could somebody confirm this as a great workflow?

Thanks
