Subject RE: Flex 4.6 Spark Skin question
Date Mon, 09 Feb 2015 21:25:23 GMT
It worked! Thanks, Om.

I simply added the path src/skin in the source path of my style project, and then changed
the ClassReference as ClassReference("sparkSkins.SkinForCustomItemRendererComponent"); and
this worked.

We should probably expose this solution to the public world. I've been struggling with this
issue and looks like a lot of people did have the same issue long before. Not sure if they
found a solution. So, it would be great to have our mailing list solutions "googleable".

Anyway, thanks again for the help!

- David

David,

It looks like you did not get my earlier response.

For q1:


It seems like your main source path is not set to "src".  If you set it to src, it might fix
your problem.

Or you could try:       skinClass:
ClassReference("sparkSkins.SkinForCustomItemRendererComponent");

I hope that helps.

Thanks,
Om
