Does the book cover how to create UI components?

As I understand it, UI components mostly follow the MVC pattern, though the diagram I saw at JavaOne used the terms Control, Skin, and Behavior.

I'd like to learn how to create UI compoments and I'm wondering if they're covered in your book.

Thanks,
Burk

There is a section on JavaFX controls and how to create a custom control.

That's excellent! One question though, is the book written for JavaFX 1.2 or 1.1? If it's 1.1, were there changes in how custom controls are created?

Thanks!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
