Styling individual FormItem labels using the labelStyleName style

The following example shows you how you can style individual labels in a FormItem container in Flex by setting the labelStyleName style, as seen in the following snippet:

<mx:Style>
    .requiredLabel {
        color: red;
        fontSize: 12;
        fontWeight: bold;
    }
</mx:Style>

<mx:Form>
    <mx:FormItem label="Field 1:"
            labelStyleName="requiredLabel"
            required="true">
        <mx:Label id="lbl1" text="{str}" />
    </mx:FormItem>
</mx:Form>

The labelStyleName style was added in Flex 3 build 186889 (Wed Nov 07 2007 or later). You may need to download a nightly build of the Flex 3 SDK from the Adobe Labs website.
