Extend an existing UI component in JavaFX 2.0

Last year, I coded a custom component on JavaFX 1.x, then naturally I wished to rewrite it on JavaFX 2.0.
To do this, i tried different solutions,  like creating to a totally new component with this method
But, it isn't a great solution when you want to customize or to enhance an existing component, like I want to do.
To rewrite my custom component, I chose to extend an existing control (TextField in my case) and its skin, because you cannot add content directly in the control but you can do that in its skin.
