This may be a simple problem, but I seem to be having an
issue getting it to work properly.
I have a vertical menu within a VBox on the left side of the
app, and a datagrid within an HBox immediately to the right of the
navigation. The client wants the datagrid to expand to fill 100% of
the area to the right of the menu - and to resize either larger or
smaller depending on the users window size. However, when I set the
datagrids HBox to 100% it fills the entire screen - including the
area where the menu is. The left portion of the datagrid is hidden
behind the menu.
I thought that Flex would be able to see the end of one
container and not overlap it - sort of like with html and css
boxes. Apparently this is not the case though. Does anyone have any
pointers on what to do in this situation?
Any chance you could share a simplified example? It's
probably pretty straightforward but it depends upon how it's set
up. If they are separate components, one would handle it one way.
If they're on the same canvas or something, you should be able to
use the constraints at the bottom right of the property view sheet
in development view to control how they resize.
