Subject Re: MobileAlert - quetwo

I've also added an example application, and example component that  
extends SkinnablePopUpComponent that requires a single button skin  
part, that when clicked closes the popup, and obviously a skin for it  
(it just contains a button).

One thing I couldn't do was add the modal styles in  
SkinnablePopUpComponent. You'll see there in the file, but commented  
out as when I uncomment them i get the following error:

Declaration of style 'modalTransparencyDuration' conflicts with  
previous declaration in /Users/tinktink/Documents/tink/libraries/ 
apache flex/whiteboard/quetwo/MobileAlert/src/org/apache/spark/ 

Yet without them you can't specify these as inline styles on the  
component (see they are commented out in the example application).

Anyone shed any light on the problem here?
