    SparkSkin v. Skin?

    Nick_Hann

      This might be a dumb question now. But I just started this weekend to move from Flex 3 to Flex 4. The skinning is pretty awesome to do BUT.

       

      What I didnt really figure out was the difference between a Sparkskin and a Skin (MXML Component).

       

      I mean I know I can override some methods in Sparkskin. But while I tried to do that i a Panel I didnt really saw a difference while I switched the exclusions.

       

      Could some one please explain me the difference or especially the advantage. I searched the internet but I just found examples for each one of them but no explanation. If u might have a good link please let me know.

       

      Thanks very much ... Nick
