[flexcoders] White button label color - disabled state problem

2011-08-02 Thread lanekelly5
For some reason if I make the text of a button white, the alpha.disabled 
property in the SparkSkin container of my custom button skin doesn't behave 
properly.  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.

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