Advanced CSS Techniques and Programmatic Skinning with Flex
At Allurent we're constantly being challenged to design and develop Flex components and applications that, frankly, don't look like Flex components and applications. With Adobe's out-of-the-box Halo theme and CS3 graphic skinning templates and ScaleNine's ever-growing library of downloadable skins, we have a lot of options and support to draw upon when defining the look and feel of our Flex applications.
But, sometimes we just have to build what we want from scratch.
We have developed component skinning techniques and a Designer/Developer workflow that emphasizes Programmatic Skinning and some slightly unorthodox use of CSS. The result: applications that are visually rich, light-weight and easily customizable.
In this talk, TR Coffey, Design Lead at Allurent, will begin with a brief overview of Flex skinning followed by an in-depth discussion of programmatic skinning and advanced techniques for making CSS work harder for you.
