    .alpha doesn't work on text, labels, etc.

      Hi all,

      I'm setting the .alpha property on some components in my flex app so i can fade them in and out. it works for buttons, but not for the label on the button, or for text, etc. is there anyway around this?

          On a lot of components, alpha is not a property but a style. To complicate
          things further, some components don't have an alpha style, but an alphas
          style. Consult the docs for each component for more info.
