    Tree skinning


      I created Tree component with XML data provider.

      I want the open brunch and leafs have a different back-color (some dark blue for the brunch and some pale blue for the leafs).

      the Tree-class properties includ only select/non-select styling.

      I need a hint.

      Thanks all

          You can do almost anything in a custom TreeItemRenderer.

          I have an example on www.cflex.net. Search for Tree itemRenderer

            I tried to manage the TreeItemRenderer - with no luck.

            I cant find what property or method changes the item's backgroung color.

            maybe I need more than a hint....

            Help everybody!

              backgrouncolor is a style. Use setStyle to change it.

                Thanks Sreenivas,
                But where can I define the backgroundColor for a specific item?

                (ahhhh, Im going mad. maybe I'll just create my owm component, it takes more time but keeps me sane.)
                :) :( :\

                  Here is a sample code


                  import mx.controls.treeClasses.TreeItemRenderer;
                  import mx.controls.treeClasses.TreeListData;
                  import flash.display.SpreadMethod;
                  import flash.display.Sprite;
                  import flash.display.Graphics;

                  public class CustomItemRenderer extends TreeItemRenderer
                  var background:Sprite;

                  override protected function createChildren():void
                  background = new Sprite;
                  addChildAt(background, 0);

                  override protected function updateDisplayList (unscaledWidth:Number,
                  super.updateDisplayList(unscaledWidth, unscaledHeight);
                  var gc:Graphics = background.graphics;
                  if (TreeListData(listData).hasChildren)
                  gc.beginFill(0x0000FF, 0.5);
                  gc.beginFill(0x000088, 0.5);

                  gc.drawRect(0,0, unscaledWidth, unscaledHeight);
