Re: BlackBerry Action Menu Help

Users are going to expect the overflow menu to be on the right, and to be accessible with the more button. I wouldn't advise changing it. It's a lot of work for you to create a worse user experience. What's the point?


Anyway, I notice those action items are all called Tab X. Are you trying to make tabs? Those will overflow onto the left side.

Re: BlackBerry Action Menu Help

Just as Paul said having a UI the opposite of what people expect isn't ideal however if you really wanted to do it, you can use my custom UI that mimics the tab pane posted here: http://crackberry.com/weekend-coder-mimic-cascades-layouts-custom-elements (and there is a github link to a sample in that article). And just have everything opposite, as I have it defined. As you can see it is quite a bit of code.
