You are still thinking in a web page mind set. When you create a Flex application do not think in pages!! A flex application (the .swf file)
should contain all components that make up the application.
If an application is very large there are ways to break up the downloads using modules so the user does not have to wait too long. However for many applications this is not necessary.
There are a variety of techniques for navigation within a flex application. the most common is to use a view stack to switch between multiple pages in an application. There are other navigation components as well. i.e
tabs, accordian etc.
Remember a flex application is more like a Swing or VB application that happens to be delivered via the web. The complete application runs on the client machine and all state is maintained on the client not on the server.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the tips. Other than this forum, are there other resources (forums, websites, etc.) that are reputable for flex subjects?
I am currently subscribed to Lynda.com and Total Training, Are there other training resources?
I've gone through the entire FB2 help system twice, and it provides a great overall perspective on developing and architecting Flex apps. No book I've seen comes close to the comprehensive perspective the help sys gives.
There are dozens, maybe hundreds of Flex sites and Blogs. I have a list, which I post below, but I can't keep up with all of the sites.
Google is still a great place to start, along with the Adobe Flex documentation itself, which is very good, just hard sometimes to find something you want. Try:
Then see below.
