in my app I want to have a menu which shows from a left side.
I saw a similar post on the forum here which suggests one
should use TabbedPane.
I checked it and it is indeed posible to showTabbedPane items
on the left just the TabbedPane has a completely different
functionality and purpose to my understanding as to a simple
menu. Am I wrong?
Is TabbedPane the only way to create such a menu which comes
out from the left? I checked this tutorial: http://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/documenta
which teaches how to create an action menu that shows from
the right -- this is exactly what I need, just to be shown from the left.
Also I wanted that the action menu be accessible only when a certain page
is shown. Is it possible/How?

Thanks for your reply.
Do you know if it would be possible to add a SearchBar on top of the TabbedPane??? (if it is shown on the left).
And also maybe to have sections between Tabbed Pane items???
ps. If no, could you please tell me in general how it is possible to implement a functionality where you make one page scroll to the right and another show from the left?? for example like here:
You see, the facebook page has been moved to the "right" - and another page has come out from the left - how would I be able to do it using two generic "Page" objects?? (in C++ say).
btw. This image also has the search bar and a section I mentioned in the top of my post.
Your input might be very helpful to me. Thanks.

Can I implement this sliding functionality with Containers??
Actually, the image I uploaded is very similar to what I want to achieve.
And actually, on the right hand side (the facebook part on the attached image), I want
to have a NavigationPane -- that is why I am thinking just a container might not be enough??
(When user opens the right "dialog" I want there to be pages so that user can navigate
through pages -- that's why a NavigationPane).
What are your recommendations? How to achieve this functionality?
