Been playing with Flex components to try and get a good look
and feel, however I've hit one snag; datagrid headers don't look
how I want!
For accordion headers, buttons and all manner of other
objects it is possible to specify a "Highlight Alphas" value. A
value of "0.5, 0.5" gives a nice highlight of the top 50% of the
button/header with no softening (ie the division is a hard line).
This looks great. However, the data-grid header doesn't seem
to support it!
I'm wondering therefore, is there a way to achieve or enable
the highlight alphas effect on data-grid headers? I find the plain
gradient looks incredibly ugly, and it's just not very nice to have
one element in a style looking inconsistent.
Ah, I'll give it a go when I have the time. Was mostly just
playing around with it at the moment though =(
Are there no existing solutions for this? I wouldn't have
thought I'd be the first one to notice, as the "Aqua" (OS X) style
of buttons and things seems to very popular (as evidenced by the
fact that Microsoft shamelessly copied it), and does look good when
Was a bit disappointed by this inconsistency though.
