Apollo Custom Chromes

I’ve been playing around with the Apollo public alpha for a few hours now. One thing I was looking for, was creating those cool custom chromed applications, so you aren’t stuck to those rectangular windows.

Tout court, this is how I did it:

  1. Create your Apollo application :–)
  2. Adjust your application xml, so it has systemChrome=”none” and transparent=”true”
  3. Add some style to your application mxml:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
ApolloApplication
{
  background-color:”";  
 background-image:”";
  padding: 0px;
  show-flex-chrome:”";
}

And magic: The application borders are gone!
