    Navigating via View Stack for 4 Components

      My application outline is as follows:

      Main Application File

      <ViewStackMain contains three main components immediately below>

      Component A Component B Component C

      <ViewStackSub for 4 below>

      SubComponent A1
      SubComponent A2
      SubComponent A3
      SubComponent A1

      My application runs fine except for one problem. I can navigate between three main components fine using my main navigation buttons. When I navigate to Component A, SubComponent A1 is the one that I want to present everytime a user navigates to Component A and it does that fine. I then have a menu of four buttons to navigate between the four SubComponents and that works fine while I stay within Component A. Envision now that I navigate to Component A and then to SubComponent A3, but then I decide to navigate via the main menu to Component C while I am located at Component A > SubComponent A3. I am successful navigating to Component C. I then decide to navigate to Component A again. Component A presents fine but it presents SubComponent A3 (the sub location I last left Component A to go to Component C). What I want to happen is when a user leaves Component A from any SubComponent presenting position(A1, A2, A3, or A4) and goes to another main Component (B or C), and then returns to Component A via the main menu, SubComponent A1 is the presenting positon every time.

      I have been trying ViewStack navigation as well State navigation but without success. Everything else in the application works fine. I am going crazy!!!!!!!!!!!! Help someone, please. Joe Kerenick

          Use the "show" event of each child view component to set its ViewStack.selected index = 0;
