Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34643) Android4 skin for 'Selection/drop down-type' Button
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2014 15:34:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34643?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14229907#comment-14229907

Ad Pijnenburg commented on FLEX-34643:

I've just attached an .fxp mobile project, it tested OK on a number of Android 4 devices (phones
and tablets).

It's actually the Flextras MobileDropDownList /-Skin with some modifications:
- for the DropDownListButtonSkin I've extended Om's Android4 ButtonSkin, for referring to
the two DDL button skin FXG graphics I created (DropDownListButton_up.fxg / DropDownListButton_down.fxg).
I don't know if separate FXG graphics are needed for distinctive dpi modes.
- the DropDownListSkin is almost identical to the Flextras DropDownListMobileSkin_Default.as,
but I've added a dropshadow style property to make the list appear more like the Android 4
style Spinner button (see [http://developer.android.com/design/building-blocks/spinners.html])
and commented out the code needed for the dropdownbutton arrow which is not present on mobile
(see Android4 comments in the DropDownListSkin.as file)
- not essential to this MobileDropDownList list, but for my own preferences: I've modified
the default LabelItemRenderer to clear the standard semi-transparent black gradient overlay
over a selectedItem's selectionColor (in line with styles of iOS7 and later as well as Android
4 and later). I will post a separate JIRA ticket to request this change to LabelItemRenderer
and IconItemRenderer.

Given the differences between the Adobe Flex DropDownList.as and the (Flextras) MobileDropDownList.as,
I'm not sure whether the desktop-/mobile-specific code parts could be integrated into one
generic object, or rather the MobileDropDownlist object should be a new mobile-specific or
rather Android (4)-only control object included in a next Apache Flex release, as for iOS
a CallOut would be expected to be used for choosing from a list.

> One of the Android 4 button types (usually giving access to a selection drop down list
or date/time dialog) has the appearance of transparency with a bottom border line including
a small triangle at the bottom right (see attached image). 
> Could this specific Android button appearance be implemented in any of the new Android4
