Chapter I-3. Development > Flash MX Component Customization

Flash MX Component Customization

Based on our preliminary look at components we decided to use components where possible in the jukebox. We weighed the pros and cons of using components versus creating our own UI elements and decided that components would be the best option for developing the jukebox. Creating our own UI elements would take far too much time and wouldn't beat the functionality and features that come with the components. The components that we'll be using include the Ticker, IconButton, PushButton and ListBox.

As is, the appearance of the components is comprised of varying tones of gray using the _sans font. The appearance is generic yet subtle enough to add as is to some sites but for our purposes we decided that we'd like the components to blend in as much as possible with the rest of site rather than mixing the gray tones with our primarily corporate blue tones and the _sans font with our Verdana font. Since these changes are related to UI, I asked Kevin to look into customizing the colors and text so that they are consistent with the rest of the Web site.
