Panel/Container for UI components?

Pardon my ignorance, as I'm sure this is a stupid question with a simple answer, but I'm new to both Adobe dev and QNX.


Is there anything for an Air app on the Playbook that acts as a container for UI elements - similar to, say, the StackPanel in Silverlight? My preliminary research on Actionscript itself says no, but so far, QNX components have been the saving grace of that platform, so I'm hoping there's a QNX UI component that does this that I don't know about Smiley Happy

Re: Panel/Container for UI components?

also im going to assume you havent yet looked over the Tablet AIR SDK Library yet so here is the link in case you were curious about other things that you may need in the future:




hope that helps. good luck!

Knew it would be something simple. If only Google knew what I was looking for and brought that up earlier Smiley Wink
