actionContent styling

I have some buttons in the actionContent section of my View and I'm wondering how i can style the particular buttons.


i've discovered mobile|ActionButtonSkin and mobile|ActionButton in the CSS but nothing that will let me change the :down action styling.


Anyone else do this?

Re: actionContent styling

The ActionButtonSkin uses a pair of fxg files to define the up and down skins:



    public function ActionButtonSkin()
        upBorderSkin = ActionButton_up;
        downBorderSkin = ActionButton_down;


so if you extend the ActionButtonSkin and define your own fxg's to use for the up/down states then in CSS you can apply the custom skin to the buttons (thanks to killerspaz for this):




s|ActionBar s|Group#actionGroup s|Button{
	skinClass:  ClassReference('com.skins.MyCustomSkinClass');


Hope this helps.
