hi guys

I need to impliment an If - else  condition in my mxml file to show and hide data.

The requirment is if 'username' is jay

i need to show  <mx:Button  label="Create new User" />

else if username is Marco i need to show <mx:Button  label="Create new Admin" />

Are there any <mx: tags using which i can do that?

right now i have this

                  <mx:Script>
                  private function userHandler(event:ResultEvent):void
                  {
                        user = event.result;
                        username = user.name

                  }                  
                  ]]>
                  </mx:Script>


                  <mx:Form width="1094" height="2200">      
                  <mx:HBox width="100%"  >                        
                        <mx:Button  label="Create new User" />      if username is jay show this , else hide it                                      
                  </mx:HBox>
                  
                  <mx:HBox width="100%"  >                        
                        <mx:Button  label="Create new Admin" />      if username is marco show this , else hide it                               
                  </mx:HBox>

This should work:

                  <mx:Script>
                  [Bindable]
                  private var username:String;
                  private function userHandler(event:ResultEvent):void
                  {
                        user = event.result;
                        username = user.name

                  }                  
                  ]]>
                  </mx:Script>


  <mx:Form width="1094" height="2200">      
       <mx:HBox width="100%"  >                        
          <mx:Button  label="Create new User" visible="{username == 'jay'}"/>      
          <mx:Button  label="Create new Admin" visible="{username == 'macro'}"/> 
        </mx:HBox>
                         
</mx:Form>

thanks for the response

>>visible="{username == 'jay'}"/

I dont want to use the visible attribute because it creates empty space. Here is my exact code which uses visible:


<mx:Form width="1094" height="2200">      
<mx:HBox width="100%" horizontalAlign="center"  direction="horizontal"
    paddingLeft="10" paddingRight="10" visible="{username == 'jay'}" >            
<projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="New "/>
<projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Delete"/>
<projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Copy "/>
<projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Send to LEAD"/>
</mx:HBox>
                  
<mx:HBox width="100%" horizontalAlign="center" direction="horizontal"  
          paddingLeft="10" paddingRight="10" visible="{username == 'marco'}" >      
            <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Approve"/>
            <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Reject"/>
</mx:HBox>
</mx:form>

now whenever user marco logs in there will be a big blank space caused by the First <mx:HBOX> .
That is why i dint want to use visible. Is there anyway we avoid that whitespace ?

thanks

Yeah, just make the width contingent on the user name as well. There's a little trick here where the NaN (not-a-number) expression lets the component have its default width. You can do the same with height if necessary:

      <mx:HBox width="100%"  >                        
          <mx:Button  label="Create new User" width="{username == 'jay'?NaN:0}" visible="{username == 'jay'}"/>      
          <mx:Button  label="Create new Admin" width="{username == 'macro'?NaN:0}" visible="{username == 'macro'}"/>
        </mx:HBox>

Sorry, I missed your updated code there. You could do this or use states.

<mx:HBox width="100%" horizontalAlign="center"  direction="horizontal"
    paddingLeft="10" paddingRight="10" visible="{username == 'jay'}" height="{username == 'jay'?NaN:0}" >            
    <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="New "/>
    <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Delete"/>
    <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Copy "/>
    <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Send to LEAD"/>
</mx:HBox>
                  
<mx:HBox width="100%" horizontalAlign="center" direction="horizontal"  
          paddingLeft="10" paddingRight="10" visible="{username == 'marco'}"  height="{username == 'jay'?NaN:0}">      
            <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Approve"/>
            <projectNav:MagnifyingButton label="Reject"/>
</mx:HBox>

Well, when you say height="NaN", it is sort of like saying "forget that I ever set the height at all." For an HBox, that means set the height big enough to contain its child components.
