    Flex 3 panel gradient background

    stroxis
      Is there any way to apply gradient background to a <mx:Panel>? I have found some tutorials but they all use SimpeGradientBorder which apparently (I think) was removed from Flex 3 and the Flex IDE produces an error instead of nice looking, two coloured panel.

          I think you'll have to extend Panel, or use a scale 9 graphic for the panel
          skin.
