I've had a look at WASI's Dashboard, and I would like to create a much simpeler version in Flex 4.
The begin is simple: Create a mx:Tile, dump a couple of s:Panels, everything's alligned properly. Looks good.
I'm confused in the next steps:
Can someone give me any pointers?
When you say Tile do you mean a tilelist ? as Tilelist allows you to drag items around.
To Maximise over the tilelist without touching the tile arrangement one approach would be to have a canvas with 1 child panel(maxpanel) that is not displayed.
on maximize a tiled panel
maxpanel = mytilepanel;
well thats just off the top of my head.
I have some old code somewhere I did to drag tiles around whilst maintaining their original index positions which was good to do a reset, so i'll see if I can find it and put it up for you.
