Toggling data tips on the Spark VideoPlayer control scrub bar in Flex 4

The following example shows how you can toggle the data tip on a Spark VideoPlayer control scrub bar in Flex 4 by setting the Boolean showDataTip property on the scrubBar skin part.

Full code after the jump.

The following example(s) require Flash Player 10 and the Adobe Flex 4 SDK. To download the Adobe Flash Builder 4 trial, see www.adobe.com/products/flex/. To download the latest nightly build of the Flex 4 SDK, see opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Download+Flex+4.

This entry is based on a beta version of the Flex 4 SDK and therefore is very likely to change as development of the Flex SDK continues. The API can (and will) change causing examples to possibly not compile in newer versions of the Flex 4 SDK.
