    Override Button Style for Rich text Editor

    flashharry! Level 1
      I have a component that is loaded in the main app. This component contains a Rich Text editor. I have set a button style in the main app,
      Button {
      removed styles for space.
      }
      I like the look of the buttons I have set, But I don't like them in the footer of the rich text editor in my component.
      How can I override that in the component. I have tried button-style-name: "myButton"; in the rich text box style but that has no effect. Flex 2.01

      Thanks
      Dean

            Thanks that pointed me in the right direction.

            I added a creation complete function to the RTE & set the styles from there.

            creationComplete="setRteStyle();"

            private function setRteStyle():void {
            rte.alignButtons.styleName= 'MyToggleButtonBar';
            rte.bulletButton.styleName = 'myButton';
            rte.boldButton.styleName = 'myButton';
            rte.italicButton.styleName = 'myButton';
            rte.underlineButton.styleName = 'myButton';
            }
            .myButton {
            highlightAlphas: 0.5, 0.14;
            fillAlphas: 1, 1, 0.75, 0.65;
            fillColors: #ffffff, #cccccc, #ffffff, #eeeeee;
            borderColor: #7e82ac;
            color: #92DE78;
            }
            .MyToggleButtonBar {
            buttonStyleName: "mytoggleButtonBarButtonStyle";
            }
            .mytoggleButtonBarButtonStyle {
            fillColors: #ffffff, #cccccc, #ffffff, #eeeeee;
            }
