Anyone know if it is possible to set the background of controls to transparent in some way?
I have a satagrid where I want to set the background to transparent, so a rather psychedelic (aka company logo) app background image is also shown where the datagrid is located. Have the same challenge with checkboxes, buttons etc where I would prefer to have a transparent background instea of the hmm boring light gray background.
Bonus question: Do anyone know of an easy to use AIR control where you can in a horizontal way can list and scroll through a number of images in AIR? much like you see in the "Music" app when it show the Playlist's

1.0 is opaque and the default, but you could set that to 0.0, or perhaps something like 0.2 to get a faded effect.
If you are using ActionScript directly, it appears that you can call
Rather than creating full skins, try the above.
