    Visual skinning for spark components

    codeBeastAdobe Community Member

      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/measure-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?
