Lightweight Layout Engine

I have a little vocal about the lack of a layout engine that supports QNX controls in a lightweight and easy to use way.  I found seveal AS3 only layout engines and have settled with BaseUI at

(use v4).

 

It cuts down on the number of lines of code significantly and will make it easier when orientation chagnes occurs than having to do absolute, coordiante base placement.  It works well with Tweener too.

 

There are others, so if anyone is using those, please let us all know your experience with them.

Re: Lightweight Layout Engine

Have you tried the built-in qnx Container class? It works pretty well for me.

 

The package location is qnx.ui.core.Container

containers do the job but leave you wishing for more sometimes. the spacing and positioning is a little off in some places.
