Subject Re: Is UI like this possible in Flex?
Date Thu, 27 May 2010 06:40:03 GMT

If so many people are thinking it is possible then it is possible. I will

the tutorial and then think how you can do it. Else many experts are here,
you ask your question
and i think so you will get a response.

Good Luck,
