Just some quick notes on setting up a basic Flex app that encapsulates individual page content (views). This could work for a multi-tab widget or a simple microsite.
Here’re some ways to interact w/ the View Stack:
To replace the views with your own custom .mxml files, check out at least the first 7 minutes of the Cairngorm Part 2 video here. It ends up looking like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns:view="view.*" layout="vertical" > //.... <mx:ViewStack id="yourID" width="100%" height="100%"> <view:YourPage1 /> <view:YourPage2 /> </mx:ViewStack> //...
Note, the extra namespace at the top, “xmlns:view”, and make sure that directory actually exists in your source folder. The “view” directory is where YourPage1.mxml and YourPage2.mxml should be stored.
