Setting a gradient background fill on a Spark TextArea control in Flex 4

In a previous example, “Setting a gradient background fill on a Halo TextArea control in Flex 4”, we saw how you could create a linear gradient background on a Halo/MX TextArea control in Flex 4 by creating a custom border skin with a LinearGradient fill and setting the borderSkin style.

The following example shows how you can create a linear gradient background on a Spark TextArea control in Flex 4 by modifying the background fill in the TextArea control’s skin to a LinearGradient.

Full code after the jump.
