Accepted Solution

ActionBar and tabs and back buttons

When adding tabs and setting the backButton, the back button is removed or hidden by the tab buttons.  Is this by design or a bug?

 

this.actionbar.showTabsFirstOnBar( true );
this.actionbar.backButton = new Action( 'Back', null, {id:'back'} );
this.actionbar.addAction( new TabAction( 'Search', null, {id:'search'} ) );
this.actionbar.addAction( new TabAction( 'POI', null, {id:'poi'} ) );
this.actionbar.addEventListener( ActionEvent.ACTION_SELECTED, ActionSelected );

Re: ActionBar and tabs and back buttons

In the UI-guidelines it is recommended to use tabs for the first level of the navigation hierarchy only, and the diagonal shape of the back button does not really fit to the tab buttons, so i guess they can not be used on the same page at all.

Maybe you can use a segemented control on the top of the screen instead.

Re: ActionBar and tabs and back buttons

That is what I had to do. Not as obvious, but it works.
