<mx:Application name="ButtonBar_buttonStyleName_cornerRadius_test"
        xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
        layout="vertical"
        verticalAlign="middle"
        backgroundColor="white">
 
    <mx:Style>
        .myCustomButtonStyleName {
            cornerRadius: 16;
        }
    </mx:Style>
 
    <mx:Array id="arr">
        <mx:Object label="Button" />
        <mx:Object label="ButtonBar" />
        <mx:Object label="CheckBox" />
        <mx:Object label="ColorPicker" />
    </mx:Array>
 
    <mx:ButtonBar id="buttonBar"
            buttonStyleName="myCustomButtonStyleName"
            dataProvider="{arr}"
            height="32" />
 
</mx:Application>

View source is enabled in the following example.

If you want to set the buttonStyleName style using an external .CSS file or <mx:Style /> block, you can use code similar to the following snippet:

<mx:Style>
    ButtonBar {
        buttonStyleName: myCustomButtonStyleName;
    }
 
    .myCustomButtonStyleName {
        cornerRadius: 16;
    }
</mx:Style>

  1. How do you set the middle buttons to have rounded corners. the buttonStyleName : cornerRadius does not affect the middle buttons. Help!
