          Much of what you wish to know can be found in the FB help system. When communicating with CF you can check the result event to see what was returned, maybe simplify the CF part till you know something is being returned, then move toward the original CF functionality.

          Flex apps are SWF files, that are certainly executable by themselves, but are usually wrapped in an HTML file. The source for a Flex app will be .mxml and .as (ActionScript).

          You could have a function that accesses the user's role and enables the buttons as appropriate.

          See the help system on the TabNavigator container.

          The FB help system has lots of great info on building Flex apps. These help system topics will be of great use:
