I have to do a project that uses a gfx library to skin a Flex application and that same gfx library will be use to skin some Flash components for a website.
I'm looking for the easiest and fastest way to do it for design & code & design updates ...
I did some test with catalyst but I have to use SWF files for the design which is not really possible in Catalyst (you can't see the symbols from the swf in the library, ...) So I did some research on how to skin a Flex4 app with SWF skins and I didn't find anything new. Basically what you have to do is the same as in Flex3, use the Embed(source="test.swf", symbol="myButton"). Am I right ?
I often use the Skin extension for Flash CS3, which allows me the define the states and transitions for a specific component, is it also possible in Flex 4 ? Or should I have to create a separate symbol for each state, and declare every Embed + states + transitions in the Skin component ?
And a last question, I can't see the Skin/component extension in Flash CS4 anymore. When I create a new document from a template, I don't see the Flex templates anymore.... Is it normal ?
Thanks in advance,
I also got this problem too.
in FlexBuilder3 i use Flex Skin Design Extension for Flash to draw a skin
but i try to use the same Design Extension(Cs3) in Flex4 , seem not working anymore.
did Flex4 support the Flex Skin Design Extension for FlashCS4 later?
or have any other way to draw a skin.
it's not a good way to draw a button every state with single symbol , right?
