    Skinning CS4 CSS Support?

    I know that CSS component support was disabled in CS3. Is this still true for CS4 (AS3)? I have a set of component skins that I bought real cheap, but I bought it knowing that it was designed for Flex (came with a .fla, .mxml, and .css) but I was hoping there was a simpler way to skin my components than sitting down and replacing each individual part of the component (plus the new skin graphics are named remotely close to their intended usage so I'm kind of clueless what goes where).

    Any help is appreciated.

    EDIT: I should have mentioned this is for the Flash CS4 IDE...

    Maybe this isn't in the right forum?

    What exactly is your question and for which application you need the components?

    I thought this was quite clear in the OP, but let me reiterate. Essentially, I bought a skin designed for Flex that includes a FLA of the component graphics (movieclips), a few bits of code for components I don't intend to use, a .css file, and a .mxml file. As far as I know, these files are all pretty much for Flex.

    However, I do not use Flex. I use the Flash CS4 IDE. I was wondering it was remotely possible to utilize this .css instead of trying to manually replace the component movieclips myself because the names of these new graphics do not clearly suggest their intended purpose.

    The reason I ask this is because I heard that CSS support for skinning components was taken out of CS3 (Beyond say, applying a text-styling) and what I wanted to do was minimize the amount of effort in applying the new skin because it is the last of my concerns on this very large AIR application.

    I have never heard that component skinning in Flash is done with CSS only with AS or as hardcopy. Of course there is the setStyle method, but that would not be a stylesheet.

    Well, at the very least, could I use setComponentStyle from the StyleManager to at least affect it at a global level? I've tried to simply mimick the effect of the CSS by using something like this:
    Code:
    StyleManager.setComponentStyle(ComboBox, "upSkin", ComboBoxArrow_upSkin);
    but to no avail.

    If it is made for Flex then setComponentStyle is not a method of the StyleManager. I have never created anything in Flex for use in Flash only the other way round.

    Correction: The skin itself was intended for Flex; setComponentStyle is most definitely a method of the StyleManager.

    setComponentStyle is a method of the StyleManager class for Flash but not Flex.

    I am using Flash, not Flex, which is why I questioned if it was possible to target skinning on a global scale...
