    Alert window issue when using CS flex theme

    DavideBarranca Level 1

      Hello forum users, happy new year 

       

      I've switched from the default Halo to the Creative_Suite_CS5 Extension Builder Flex theme, and my Alert windows changed their look from this:

      Schermata 2011-01-10 a 11.20.25.png

      to... this:

      Schermata 2011-01-10 a 11.21.18.png

      The code should be plain and simple, I guess:

       

      Alert.show("A preset with that name already exists.\nPlease enter a new name", "Error!", Alert.OK, Sprite(mx.core.Application.application));

       

      Am I doing something weird...?

      Thanks in advance for your replies,

       

      Davide

          I don't know the answer, but I generally use the standard app alerts instead of Flash ones. I think it has a more integrated look...

           

          (i.e. jsxInterface.alert(alertText) )

            Harbs,

            Things are getting weird here...

            This is a crop of the GUI in Halo:

            and this is what the CS Extension Builder theme looks like:

             

            Schermata 2011-01-13 a 14.07.55.png

            There's no more the vertical separator *nor* the arrow in the combobox! Let alone that the plus button has gotten a crazy size.

            Uhm... it seems like there's something wrong.

             

            And by the way, no matter what theme I chose, my Design tab always shows the bluish GUI:

            Being Halo, shouldn't it be gray? Why on earth it's grayish blue to me?!

             

            I've had some random warnings, not specifically in this project, like:

             

            "Design mode: Cannot load CSXSLibrary-2.0-sdk-3.4-public.swc (reason: ERROR: Load Verify). It may require classes (such as Adobe AIR components) that are not supported by design mode. Check the Eclipse error log for more details. main.mxml /01/src Unknown Problem"

             

            I'm wondering whether FB has some troubles with the preferences...

            Could someone please test whether the change in theme leads to these dramatic changes in appearance?

            Is it correct that the default appearance is this (bluish) one?

            Thanks,

             

            Davide

              I just made my own skin and using it instead of the provided one.

              Recommend you to do the same, if you want to change the look of your panel

                Agreed.

                 

                The CS theme leaves a lot to be desired...

                 

                I hope we get better themes for CS Next...
