Are you using embedded fonts? I don’t remember if Spark controls need embedded fonts for alpha to work correctly.

I can set the alpha.disabled=.99 on the <SparkSkin> and the white text is really hard to read. I would expect that it would make the disabled button look almost exactly like the enabled button (it does if the label text is black and not white). Is there some weird blending mode going on under the hood with a label on the button skin? If I set alpha.disabled=1 on the SparkSkin component of my custom button skin, then the disabled and enabled buttons look the same with white text. -- Alex Harui Flex SDK Team Adobe System, Inc. http://blogs.adobe.com/aharui
