Hi Experts,

I want to realize HBOX component of FLex in HTML with the Help of CSS and javascript.

HBOX component  of Flex keeps all the innner components placed one after another horizontally and if the total width of the inner components exceeds HBOX then a scroll appears but in any case it will not put child elements vertically one after another.

If you want to see how HBOX looks then please follow the link below

http://examples.adobe.com/flex3/componentexplorer/explorer.html

and in navigate through Navigation panel as mentioned below

Visual Components --> Containers --> HBOX

I hope there would be solution for this question

thanks In advanse

If I understand your question, you may want to try a simple CSS nowrap command in a div or table as in the examples.

<div style="white-space:nowrap;">
 
 (Put buttons links and text in here)
 
</div>
 
<table style="white-space:nowrap;">
 <tr>
  <td>
 
  (Put buttons links and text in here)
 
  </td>
 </tr>
</table>

Thanks BobTheViolent for you quick response, but I am sorry to say it could not provide any help.

Actually I want to have something like TABLE ROW effect. Where you goon adding elements ("<td>") and they placed in a line.Please  note that, I want  HTML ELEMENTS ( and notjust   text) to be wrapped in a line.

Hope that it will clear what i am looking for.  Thanks!

Sorry that didn't work like you wanted.  I'm still a little unsure what exactly you are looking for.

How about this example?  I replicated the HBox as closely as I could with basic HTML and CSS.

I tested in both IE 7 and FF 3, and get the same basic look as the hbox.


Try this:

<html>
	<body>
		<div style="border: 1px solid black; width: 75%; height: 100px; overflow: auto; padding:10"
			<label style="color:blue;font-family:arial;font-size:12">An HBox clone example horizontally aligned</label><br><br>
				<table style="border-width:1px; border-style:solid; padding:10">
					<tr>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<input type="button" value="test button">
						</td>
						<td>
							<select name="test">
							<option value="1">One</option>
							<option value="2">Two</option>
							<option value="3">Three</option>
							<option value="4">Four</option>
							</select>
						</td>
					</tr>
				</table>
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

BobTheViolent: I think this is the only possible way left. Actually I wanted to use DIV & CSS only and not table to make something like this. But it seems that is the only way left out.
Anyways, Thanks a lot for you kind help.  And more Importantly I am going to accept your solution right now, but if by any chance you get hit by some idea to do it with DIV and CSS then do let me know.

Techfunda248,

  Thank you for the points.  I messed around with it a little more and you actually CAN eliminate tables and go only DIV / CSS but it looks a slightly different, see what you think about this.

<html>
<body>
<div style="border: 1px solid black; width: 75%; height: 100px; overflow: auto; padding:10;white-space:nowrap"
<label style="color:blue;font-family:arial;font-size:12">An HBox clone example horizontally aligned</label><br><br>
<INPUT type="button" value="Refresh" onClick="window.location.reload()">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<input type="button" value="test button">
<select name="test">
<option value="1">One</option>
<option value="2">Two</option>
<option value="3">Three</option>
<option value="4">Four</option>
</select>
</div>
</body>
</html>
