Without seeing the project's structure and just using the screens provided and the descriptions, I think you might be able to solve this by combining "contents1" with it's associated sub page into a single custom component. Just repeat that for each of the 10 menu items.
You have to remember that Flash Catalyst was build as prototyping/design tool for Flash Builder. Typically, you would build the design shell in Catalyst, then transfer it over to Flash Builder to have the content populated in a more programatic manner.
Thank you very much for your help. I have tried pushing subpage interaction down into custom components, and I can see that the solution lies in that direction. Unfortunately, I cannot get things to work properly.
When I convert the background rectangle, the scrolling panel, the button to take me to a subpage and the rectangle off the screen that I want to slide in as the background of the subpage scrollling panel, into a custom panel, and then duplicated it to reuse it on other items, the scrolling pannels and their content are of cours also duplicated to these states. I thought it was just a matter of swapping each of the scolling pannels of each individual instance of the custom component, but when I try to swap the pannels the scrolling pannels in all the instances are swapped as well.
Another problem is that when I link a button up to take me to an item and then click to go to a subpage within that item, the main menu button no longer takes me to the item. I seem to have becom stuck inside the custom component.
I am sure there is a fairly simple solution to these problems, but I can't seem to be able to find it on my own. Hope you can help me.
Would it help if I posted some screen shots of the steps I take, which are obviously wrong?
Either screen or the project itself if you don't mind sharing.
I don't mind sharing my project at all and will be very grateful if, if you would tke a look at it.
How do I make the fxp file accessible here in disacussion forum. I cannot find any insert/upload file option in this editor.
I have now uploaded the original project, where I ran out of states, and the edited project where I tried to use custom components with states for item one's subpages.
I sincerely hope that you can tell me how to go beyond the 20 states, since the success of my undertaking is utterly dependent on this.Studieretning oversigt fxg 673x470.fxp
