how does it being done with flex?
surry for my english and thanks a head!
There's no such layout like "relative". There is an "absolute" layout, where you can use relative positioning like: top, bottom, left, right, which are the distance from top, bottom, left or right border like this:
<mx:Button top="10" left="10"/>
You can use <mx:Canvas/> which allows absolute positioning (x, y) and allows to use relative styles (top, bottom, left, right), or set Application's layout to "absolute", to position your children.
