Gets a style property that has been set anywhere in this component's style lookup chain.
IStyleClient
  
matchesCSSState(cssState:String):Boolean
Returns true if cssState matches currentCSSState.
IAdvancedStyleClient
  
matchesCSSType(cssType:String):Boolean
Determines whether this instance is the same as, or is a subclass of, the given type.
IAdvancedStyleClient

notifyStyleChangeInChildren(styleProp:String, recursive:Boolean):void
Propagates style changes to the children of this component.
IStyleClient
 Inherited
regenerateStyleCache(recursive:Boolean):void
Sets up the internal style cache values so that the getStyle() method functions.

Property Detail
idproperty
id:String  [read-only]

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 4
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 10, AIR 1.5

The identity of the component.


Implementation
    public function get id():String
styleParentproperty 
styleParent:IAdvancedStyleClient

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 4
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 10, AIR 1.5

The parent of this IAdvancedStyleClient.. Typically, you do not assign this property directly. It is set by the addChild, addChildAt, removeChild, and removeChildAt methods of the flash.display.DisplayObjectContainer and the mx.core.UIComponent.addStyleClient() and the mx.core.UIComponent.removeStyleClient() methods. If it is assigned a value directly, without calling one of the above mentioned methods the instance of the class that implements this interface will not inherit styles from the UIComponent or DisplayObject. Also if assigned a value directly without, first removing the object from the current parent with the remove methods listed above, a memory leak could occur.


Implementation
    public function get styleParent():IAdvancedStyleClient
    public function set styleParent(value:IAdvancedStyleClient):void
Method Detail
matchesCSSState()method
public function matchesCSSState(cssState:String):Boolean

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 4
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 10, AIR 1.5

Note Spark components use their skin state as the pseudo state. Halo components use the currentState property.

Parameters

cssState:String — A possible value of CSSCondition.value. It represents the current state of this component used to match CSS pseudo-selectors.

Returns
Booleantrue if cssState matches currentCSSState. By default, currentCSSState is the same as currentState. If no state exists, return null.

public function matchesCSSType(cssType:String):Boolean

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
