I'm new to Flex, and I've worn myself out trying to figure
out how to add a "close" control in a tab (beside the label) so
users can close that tab by clicking. The functionality I'm
striving for is similar to Yahoo's new Mail product, where each tab
has a little "x" next to the label.
I've tried everything I can think of... it's no trouble to
put a link button or any other clickable item in the main container
area of the tab, and have that do a RemoveChild(), but trying to
call that function from the tab text? I just can't crack that nut.
I suspect it may require capturing the Change event of the
ViewStack, and then conditionally calling the destroyer that way,
but... then there's still the problem of putting an icon next to
the label and calling the method from that.
Anyone able to shed some light on this? Anyone? Anything? I
need to go cry now.
