Link: Creating a snazzy background in Flex 4

Peter deHaan has posted a cool example of the way things work in the new Flex 4 'Spark' framework;

The aim of the new Spark components is to make it much easier to customise the appearance of standard Flex components - similar to the Degrafa project. If you're interested in either of these, then I hope you're already signed up for Flash Camp Birmingham, June 16th 2009 (tomorrow), as James Whittaker of RefreshingApps.com will be doing a session entitled "Skinning components with Degrafa & FXG" which should be interesting!
