Flex :: Layout - Get Spark Skin To Center Vertically?

Apr 2, 2012

I've created a skin that allows me to have two labels on a spark button, but the button text won't center vertically. It stays at the top of the button no matter what settings I give it. The icon in the skin DOES however, center vertically. This is the skin:

Flex :: Shrink The Default Spark DataGrid Row Height And Keep The Text Vertically In View?

Dec 11, 2011

In the Spark DataGrid the default row height is about 22 px. I would like to set the default row height to 18 pixels and I can do this easily enough with the rowHeight property but what happens is when the rowHeight is set to anything less than 22 px the bottom area of the text in each row is cut off. It seems that the default grid itemrenderer or grid label has a min height set to it. Since I have multiple columns and want to have shorter rows but not have the bottom of the text cut off in each row how would I do this?

Flex :: Extending The Spark Skin?

Jul 14, 2011

My current requirement: I have menubar with 3 different button types. Skin structure is simple: one label and two state graphics. So my base skin have label, and in overridden i want add two images. But flex docs states that overriding of skin is not preferred. I try override override public function addElementAt(element:IVisualElement, index:int):IVisualElement for adding new subcomponents to custom container sdk using it but my view is blank. Does skins are really not overridable? My current code:

<s:ButtonBar skinClass="MenuSkin" dataProvider="{content}" />
in MenuSkin:
<fx:Component id="firstButton">


and next 2 skins have repeated <s:Label/> part. As label should look the same, naturally i want extend base skin class but it is no possible form me. First problem: if i add image in mxml it overlaps label.

Flex :: Conflicts Between SWC Skin And Spark Drawing API

Aug 4, 2010

I have a project where we are trying to skin Spark components from a third party library that are built up from the drawing API primitives. Our first attempt involved creating a Flex skin (SWC) in Illustrator/Flash and applying that skin to the Spark components via CSS. We found that even with only a single instance of one of the components skinned in this way on stage, the application was brought to it's knees. For example, it failed to respond in repaint scenarios in a timely manner, and exhibited all the symptoms of being hung.

Our next approach will be to recreate the same skin artifacts in MXML classes that are in turn associated with the third-party components. Although the complexity of some of the skins leads me to believe that we might not avoid performance problems with this approach either. My question is the following: Is there a correct or recommended way to apply either a SWC or based skin to a component that is built up from the Spark drawing API to begin with? Even as I ask the question I recognize that the approach means using the Spark drawing API in two places and will probably have unexpected consequences.

Flex :: Exposing Properties To A Spark Skin Class

Sep 2, 2011

I am having trouble wrapping my head around the spark skin class in relation to it's host component. Basically, from what I've seen with most every skin that comes in the Flex 4 framework they don't directly expose the properties that are dynamically being set in the host component. Instead, they define states that get exposed to the skin class to define when a component should look different. This is all fine and dandy when you have a very simple component with a standard set of states, but when you have twenty different properties (hypothetically) to set in your host component that should change how the skin looks it could get very complicated very fast.

The way that I've seen that they have used to get around this is by overriding the commitproperties and invalidate functions in the skin class, grabbing the values for the properties they want from there, and then setting them to a locally instantiated variable inside the skin class. This is fine, but I feel like that is just a patch workaround to it which makes things a lot more complicated than it needs to be.Is there any way to directly expose a bindable property from the host component class so when you define your skin class it is directly ready to be read from? Let's say you have custom button with a boolean property of 'selected'. In the skin class, you want to add in a get and set function for the property 'selected' so you can perform some action upon your skin whenever it's set. How do you tell the skin class that this is an available property for you to work with from the host component?

Flex :: Get The Visible Items On A Spark List With Virtual Layout?

Apr 12, 2010

I have:

an ArrayCollection of Numbers;

a List using the above ArrayCollection as it's dataprovider, and virtualLayout=true;

a custom ItemRenderer that shows a label with:

a) the number

b) an y position depending on the number AND the highest number visible

In another words, if I have 10 numbers in the AC, and only 5 appear on the screen, the y position of those 5 will depend on the value of the maximum number for those 5. When the user scrolls, of course those 5 elements change so the position of the label in item renderers will change.

1) How can I get the list of items that are "currently" visible?

2) Which event/method to override will help me know that the List was scrolled/the visible items changed?

<mx:Form width="100%">

Actionscript 3 :: Where Is Spark Skin Button Size Set

Dec 10, 2011

I've skinned an hSlider's thumb with an image. But the image is pixelated, as though it's been forced to resize.It's just a pretty circle with a radius of 30 px.The other thing that happens is that instead of the new button being cleanly bisected by the track, it is just below the track, tangential to it. So now I have to reposition it by modifying its y value in SliderThumbSkin.mxml? And (presumably because its registration point is at upper left) when I slide it all the way to the right, it goes right off the end of the track until its left edge is at the track's right edge. This might also mess up calculations for the hSlider.value property.

You'd think you could just apply the skin and it would replace the button, but seems that both its position and size are being wrongly manipulated.Is the thumb's size automatically reset or resized somewhere? Is there a way to do this correctly and cleanly?

EDIT: Here's code for the entire test project:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<s:ViewNavigatorApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"[code]......

I would prefer to have the List in MXML (because It will be easier using states later), but If I am forced to use pure Actionscript so I can instantiate it and pass in parameters, any help would go a long way.

Flash :: Set Label Width Inside Itemrenderer For Spark List In A Liquid Layout?

Jun 29, 2011

In a flex project that I have that is designed to scale 100% to the web window, I have a spark list. And I have a simple itemrenderer that takes the data and displays a name, and a message. Just think of it like a simple instant messenger display. The problem is that for my msg_txt label I want to give it a width thats the width of the parent list thats holding it.I tried turning the horizontalScrollPolicy to off, also tried width="this.parent.parent.width}" (as well as this.parent.width) for the spark label inside the item renderer. and in the label i tried some things like left="0" right="0" maxWidth="{this.width}" but nothing really does the trick.How can I make this label have a max width of the list thats holding it, AND make sure it resizes if the size of the browser changes and the list size changes?heres the list:

<s:List id="chat_content" width="100%" height="100%"
alternatingItemColors="[#EEEEEE,#E6E6E6]" contentBackgroundColor="#EEEEEE"
horizontalScrollPolicy="off" itemRenderer="renderers.ActiveChatItemRenderer">

Flex :: Define A Control And A Skin Which Can Be Reused With Different Controls Inserted From Outside The Skin?

Mar 15, 2011

SkinParts are a great way to add event handlers and logic to an object that is instantiated in the skin, away from any business code. Often, though, I find myself wanting to do the opposite, and define parts that will be used in reusable, skinnable containers in the parent mxml files which will be inserted into the skinned containers.

What's the best practice for when you want to be able to define a control and a skin which can be reused with different controls inserted from outside the skin? Edit: A better way to put this might be that I want to use something that works a little bit like a SkinnableContainer, but that isn't limited to one area where content can be placed.
