Lesson 3. Laying Out the Interface > Laying Out the E-Commerce Application

Laying Out the E-Commerce Application

The e-commerce application of FlexGrocer is the means through which customers shop for groceries. The top region of the application’s user interface displays the store logo as well as navigation links that appear throughout the application. Below that is a series of clickable icons that users can use to browse the various categories of groceries (dairy, meat, fruit, and so on). Below the icons is an area for displaying products.

In this lesson, you will use both Design view and Source view to begin laying out the application. Design view is a powerful feature of Flash Builder but can be a very frustrating experience, especially when you are new to it. It is often very difficult to get objects to align correctly or to be placed inside the intended container on the screen. Therefore, you’ll also see a code sample for everything you do in Design view. If your interface does not look like the one in the book as you proceed, feel free to switch to Source view and make the changes before switching back to Design view.
