View Full Version : Having a problem with NavigatorContent and Visibility

06-25-2012, 06:45 PM
I have been working on this for more than a day, so it's time for some help... I'm not a Flex/Flashbuilder expert, so any help is appreciated...

I've got a NavigatorContent object that I want to set the visibility on based on the content of the object. Bascially, if it is empty, I don't want to show it. However, no matter what I do, I can't actually get the visibility to change. It's ALWAYS visible. I've checked the .visibile property and it IS set correctly, but I can still see the tab. So, if I get the childNavReports.visible, it will say "false" but still display...

Here's the code where it's built:

var childNavReports:NavigatorContent = new NavigatorContent();

childNavReports.percentWidth = 100;
childNavReports.percentHeight = 100;
childNavReports.minWidth = 780;
childNavReports.minHeight = 150;
childNavReports.maxHeight = 170;
loadReportTree(childNavReports,graphic,layer); //this is where it's populated


I've even tried the following:

childNavReports.setStyle("visibility", "hidden;");
tabNavAssessment.getChildByName("assessment_report s").visible=false;
tabNavAssessment.getTabAt(tabNavAssessment.getItem Index(tabNavAssessm ent.getChildByName("assessment_reports"))).visible =false;
tabNavAssessment.getTabAt(tabNavAssessment.getItem Index(tabNavAssessm ent.getChildByName("assessment_reports"))).enabled =false;
tabNavAssessment.getTabAt(tabNavAssessment.getItem Index(tabNavAssessm ent.getChildByName("assessment_reports"))).include InLayout=false;

Global.getLogger(this).info("childNavReports.visib le added to tabs"+ childNavReports.visible.toString());

tabNavAssessment.getChildByName("assessment_report s")

tabNavAssessment.getTabAt(2).visible=false; // 2 is the correct index
tabNavAssessment.getTabAt(2).includeInLayout=false ;

Any ideas? Or work arounds? Thanks!
