How to make Facebook native app like Navigation bar at top in blackberry java

[ Edited ]

I thought that navigation bar is in the banner section but not sure about it and also also if we have many screens then by this way we will need to make banner in all screens..

 

On button click from navigation panel opens selection of buttons and by selecting them opens that screen.

 

I am new in blackberry development.So any idea of how such navigation works or how to implement facebook app like navigation will be much helpful.

i don't have a clear picture of the facebook app, maybe you could provide a screenshot?

but i suspect that it uses a tabbed view. That would be a container in the main area instead of new screens which is exchanged by clicking the buttons or areas.

 

edit:

with the screenshot provided: that looks like a screen or popupscreen with transparent background that is pushed

Re: How to make Facebook native app like Navigation bar at top in blackberry java

Thank youfboptions.pngfbnative.pngfbnotifications.png for the suggestion..

Actually as i have provided in the snapshot there is one Navigation bar with facebook name and logo at top which remains in whole app regardless of any screen like profile,news feed,settings..and clicking on it opens a semi transparent screen with options to navigate..

So first that navigation panel with name and logo is singleton as per my understanding. but all screens are different.

How to implement such pattern?

you can have either a new instance of the title bar on every screen or, a bit better, use a single screen and replace only the main content container.
