F*CSS is more than just CSS for Flash

I had seen the author’s original writeup on Camouflage and that was already very cool. This goes beyond that and again just beyond CSS properties. The idea that any public property can be set via an external file and it’s not XML, that’s much cleaner. But even the idea of just changing positions, sizes, etc., in such a clean and fast way and with inheritance as well? Merging?! Very nice.

F*CSS |  About

F*CSS is a custom CSS parser for Flash based on the PropteryManagement System in Flash Camouflage. The main class called StyleSheet (found inside of the com.flashartofwar.fcss.stylesheets package), goes well beyond the native StyleSheet class by supporting style inheritance, pseudo selectors, and merging styles on the fly. The goal of the StyleSheet is to make styles something you can apply to any of your classes instead of just TextFields. CSS is a great way to define your class’s properties in an external file and F*CSS helps convert these css styles into property/value pairs you can apply to any Object.
