I am just learning Flex 2 and am trying to duplicate my HTML
web site as a model to emulate in my learning experiences. In the
HTML site built with Dreamweaver, I have both a horizontal and
vertical navigation menus that link to different pages. The
horizontal and vertical links are different. No links are
duplicated in both menus.
I have used "Canvas" containers to emulate the horizontal top
Div and the vertical Sidebar Div of the HTML model in which I want
the horizontal and vertical links to show. I have used a View Stack
to emulate the main content Div of the HTML "pages" which are
stacked on top of one another for my main content. I then use a
link bar for the horizontal menu links and a link bar for the
vertical links. Each link bar has its own unique "id".
By using one View Stack to contain the stacked "page" canvas
containers, both the horizontal links and the vertical links are
the same in both the horizontal and vertical menu. What I want to
happen is to have some of the links in the vertical and the
remainder in the horizontal Canvas containers. The horizontal links
are: Dance, Theatre,
Visual Arts, Strings, Wind-Percussion, and Literary Arts. The
vertical links are: About Us, Admission, Calendar, Video Links,
Faculty, Home, Help, District, and High School.
I have tried using two View Stacks each with different "id"
designations so that I can separate the links into two sets but
when I do the horizontal set works fine but the vertical link do
not cause the "content" containers to change.
Any suggestions regarding building horizontal and vertical
navigation systems in Flex 2 would be appreciated.
