I've been checking out the new Flash Builder 4 and I have a question.
I want to create an application with multiple windows for carrying out different tasks. I want to have windows for:
The content for these tasks will each be hosted in their own container, preferably a TitleWindow with a close button. This is to allow the user to close that window when they are finished making use of it.
I currently make use of two (2) states, an authenticated state and an unauthenticated state. When a menu item is clicked in the authenticated state, I use the popup manager to call up a custom TitleWindow relating to the menu item that the user clicked.
With the changes made to Flash Builder 4 in regards to states, is it still recommended to do things this way or should I make sub-states of the authenticated state and switch to those depending on which menu item is clicked?
If I do it using the sub-states, how do I get movable windows? When I popup the custom TitleWindows, those are usually enabled to move for the user's convenience.
I'd definitely appreciate some clarity on this matter.
No one has any insight they can share on this?
Everything depends on how you want the flow, states are good if you want a wizard style flow, for each step you can have branches(maybe set by flags) to determine if pageA goes to pageB1 or pageB2. Title windows are more about stopping flow, meaning" I want multiple versions of things to happen in this view but not at the same time".
