I have a textinput itemrenderer that Im trying to port to Flex 4. This control colors the background based on the value of the text.
1) Converting to 'spark' as a theme seems to be overriding the background color and resetting them to a default.
2) Further - converting to 'spark.controls.textinput' as the base class removes 'override public set data()' as a function.
So Im not clear on how to port this control. I can continue to use mx.controls.* and 'halo' but this seems to defeat the purpose of porting at all.
Spark controls do not have itemrenderer functionality built in so they can
be a bit less heavy. I'd just place a TextInput in an ItemRenderer. See
the doc and examples on Spark ItemRenderers.
So its a much larger port than I was thinking.. ok. Thanks.
