    Change the look of a Combo Box

    How do you change the complete look of a Combo Box component in Mx?

    I don't just want to change the colour etc. I want to make it bigger and more fancy.

    Thanks
    I can always use more help!

    Open library (F11), double click on Flash UI Components's folder then double click on Component Skins's folder and change whatever you want to change in those folders that appear.

    Are you joking me, it's as easy as just changing those movie clips to whatever you want?
    How come nobody else knows about this? I've asked everywhere about this and have always received no reply.

    Thanks I really appreciate that. Do you know anywhere where I can download other skins so I don't have spend my time designing my own.

    Thanks again

    Maybe some people haven't discovered that yet.

    Downloading skins is something I haven't discovered yet. Maybe do a google search: http://www.google.com.au.

    I can't imagine that the statement:
    How come nobody else knows about this? I've asked everywhere about this and have always received no reply.
    is complete as I just posted on this exact topic in these very boards just the other day. Anyway, I am posting a link to that thread b/c there is outlined a very nice way to customize the scrollpane (you could use this for any of them) component through the use of some clever actionscript lines.
