In flex,  You could skin components programmatically using Degrafa. And I have been doing just that eversince I got a new job here in Makati – trying to skin flex components using the Declarative Graphic Framework.

 I discovered degrafa from googling on ways to skin flex components.

I got a lot of results of course and I started on using (I mean trying to use) graphical skins (the easiest since I knew CSS)

Then I learned programmatic skinning (BUT I DON’T KNOW ACTION SCRIPT!!!) So i turned back to graphical skinning. The thing is that, I keep exporting png files from Inkscape, and keep redrawing them so I tried to google ways on using SVG for skinning instead

and I got Flex”i”MMI which mentioned degrafa.. 

(Ok, enough about that)

I get started on skinning components and I had fun (still having) . So I suggested my co-worker that I’d be using this library instead of learning actionscript drawing tool. Since I understand xml and I know Inkscape.

All in all everything is quite alright until I get to skin a checkbox, which until now, I did not learn how to do. Thanks to Mr. Patrick Hansen for sharing his code and showing me how to do it..

Now I’ll try it and let’s see if it goes alright. 

I’ll have to try too if this works drawing icons on button controls.. 😀
