    TextInput component




      I have an issue with creating a specific TextInput component in Flash Catalyst.

      Here is how I want my TextInput component to behave:

      1. When the TextInput component is in it's "normal" state, I want it to be with a black stroke.
      2. When it's being clicked (focused), I want the component to have a green stroke and a green glow.
      3. When the component is deselected, I want it to have a black stroke as in it's normal state, and naturally, the text should remain visible.

          Hi Roy,


          The green stroke part unfortunately can't be done purely within Catalyst.  If you're up or writing a little Flex code, you should be able to do this by writing a custom focusSkin.  Here are some examples of the appearances you can create by doing that.


          The green glow part is simpler, though: in Catalyst, select the Text Input and then look in the Appearance section of the Properties panel.  You'll see a color control for "Focus ring" there.


          You shouldn't have to do anything at all to get the stroke to stay black and text to remain visible after un-focusing the Text Input.


          Hope that helps,
