Custom user interfaces for editing component parameters can be very valuable. You do have to remember steps such as closing the Component Parameters panel before testing or publishing your movie. However, custom UIs give you the ability to create a more intuitive and less troublesome means for adjusting a component's parameters.

Like plug-ins for programs such as Adobe Photoshop, custom UIs can be very wild and fanciful or they can be very conservative and unimaginative. Whether a custom UI is actually an improvement over the default UI is entirely up to the component designer.

Most of the components that we have seen up to this point have been noninteractive. In the next chapter, we will start working with components for creating buttons and relatively basic navigation. Most of the components we will work with in the remainder of this book will feature custom UIs.
