A. Skinning and Styling Diagrams

The following series of diagrams describe the “visual anatomy” for nearly every Flex 3 component. Properties for each component are divided between CSS styles and “skinnable” parts. The names for these properties are pulled directly from the Flex framework and can be specified inline in MXML, in an <mx:Style> block or via an external CSS file.

To learn more about using these properties to customize the look of your components, refer to Chapter 4, “Styling,” Chapter 5, “Graphical Skinning,” or Chapter 6, “Programmatic Skinning.”
