Thanks for the reply! I appreciate it.
I did see that example. And it seems like the only thing they are doing is applying a bitmap to the divider. I managed to do that with enough ease, but it seemed like a pretty limited use case.
If I wanted my bitmap to stretch the entire length of the divider (minus the area reserved for padding), and I wanted that bitmap to resize as the window size is changed. It seems like a tiled bitmap that resizes with the DividerBox would work. However, I don't see how I could accomplish such a seemingly logical effect.
I don't have Adobe CS4 and was recently watching a tutorial on skinning with CS4, so maybe that's the path I need to take, it seems like I can create a pretty straight forward vector graphic skin in CS4 to accomplish this. I'm going to grab the eval copy of CS4 and play with this functionality. I'm a developer, not a designer.
If you have any other thoughts on how I can accomplish this let me know.
Try the free script that Adobe has for Illustrator CS3...
1) Download the Flex Skin Design Extension for Illustrator (they have one for Photoshop, also):
