I have created an AIR for iOS app intended for iPad only. I have successfully published the app. It contains a form that works fine but there are several form components - Radio buttons and Checkboxes that look tiny on the Retina display. I can make the labels of the components bigger (and I have done) but the actual Radio buttons and checkboxes are still tiny.
I have tried simply scaling up the elements in the skin (movieclip) for each component instance but they do not display any different in the parent. I can see AS3 to edit the textFormat (in lots of places) but everyone seems to shy away from describing how to change the skin.
ps. I have found literally no information on how to do this after looking on the forums and Adobe documentation for 3 days. I went to live chat with Adobe and was told there is no documentation so I need to post the question, so are there any Adobe heroes out there?
editing skins is a mess.
it's easier to create your own movieclips that act like checkboxes and radio buttons.
Yeah, I came to the same conclusion and went down that route. The way Adobe answered this was a joke. Rather than just saying it's a mess and that's why we haven't made any documentation they referred me to the community.
Hopefully anyone else looking to do this will find this and save themselves a lot of wasted time!
