I've recently upgraded my app into Flex 4.5.1.
I have an mx:TextInput whose background colour I have changed to backgroundColor="0xffffc3"
Back in Flex 3, the entire text input would change color. Now the only bit that changes colour is the background behind the actual text written within the TextInput.
Am I doing something wrong?
Has something changed?
I am using the Halo theme and not the Spark theme if it makes any difference.
I am not an expert in css but i was able to do this using:
@namespace mx "library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx";
I fixed it. In the end I had to use backgroundAlpha to zero.
