adobe flex dashboard in pod layout

Postby haretu » Thu Apr 07, 2011 9:50 am

The dashboard is a demo application which displays data using draggable drill down charts, forms, DataGrids, and links in a pod layout. You can modify layouts by dragging and dropping pods to a different location and minimizing, maximizing, and restoring pod windows. Layout changes are saved using a LocalSharedObject. Layout data is loaded from /data/pods.xml with values in pod.xml indicating which data files to load for a particular pod.

Code: Select all
