Creating Custom Chrome For AIR Apps

When developing Adobe AIR apps, having the capability of controling the look and feel of an application’s window chrome is huge. Not only does it allow for designers to create a much more appealing interface window chrome, it also allows for personal branding.

Earlier this year, Lee Brimelow wrote a nice tutorial on how to go about customizing your application’s chrome and pros and cons on doing so.

Below is a video created by Lee which turns out to be a nice compliment his tutorial.
