Well, at the past, it’s hard to custom the skin of AsWing components.
With 2.0, we plan to improve this because there’s not many guys can make a new LookAndFeel, they want to change some basic properties directly by just call some methods.
Here it is, for example we have a normal button – “A Button”.(The first button in the picture, PS:this is not the final design of button look, it will be well designed when 2.0 released)
We want to change its color, just call button.setBackground(new ASColor(0xF4A0AA));, it will be looks like “Blue Button”, you can see it changes well, the gradient, border and shadow keep looks well, really a blue button.
How about a red button? Simple, setBackground(new ASColor(0xf4a0aa)); then it will looks like “Red Button”.
Want to make it flater? Yes you can, there’s StyleTune for every component, you can call button.setStyleTune(button.getStyleTune().sharpen(0.1));, then it will looks like “Flatten Button”, 0.1 times gradient; well same way to sharpen it call button.setStyleTune(button.getStyleTune().sharpen(2)); it becomes 2 times sharper than normal one like “Sharpen Button”
Also, you can change the round property of StyleTune to 10, you’ll get a button looks like “Round Button”.
All about StyleTune class, it has 5 major properties to affect the style of a component, you can read the asdoc to know it:
* Gradient brightness range of content color [-1, 1]
public var cGradient:Number;
* The birightness offset for border color [-1, 1]
public var bOffset:Number;
* Gradient brightness range of border color [-1, 1]
public var bGradient:Number;
* Shadow alpha value [0, 1]
public var shadowAlpha:Number;
* The round rect radius, 0 means not round [0, +]
public var round:Number;
private var mideAdjuster:StyleTune;
* Create a UIColorAdjuster with specified params
* @param cg gradient brightness range of content color
* @param bo birightness offset for border color
* @param bg gradient brightness range of border color
* @param sa shadow alpha
* @param r the round rect radius, 0 means not round
public function StyleTune(cg:Number=0.2, bo:Number=0.15, bg:Number=0.35, sa:Number=0.2, r:Number=0)
With a full customized StyleTune and background foreground set, you even can get a button like “Customed” button in the picture. Its StyleTune and colors are:
button.setStyleTune(new StyleTune(0.18, 0.05, 0.20, 0.20, 2));
Next time, i’ll introduce another feature about Component.setMideground()
