[TIP] Change layout of your Flow Design

I discovered from answers in NetCAT survey that lot of mobility users don't know that they can change layout of components in Flow design. I'm not talking about change of a component layout but only about change of positions of the components/transitions in Flow design. I briefly noticed it in my post about changes in a q-build of Mobility Pack 5.0
It's time to describe it a little bit more. I prepared little flash demo - link is at the end of post.
How you can change layout of components in Flow Design?
There are too modes of Flow Design - normal (default) and re-design. You'll switch to re-design mode when you hold CTRL (Control) in Flow design area.
  1. Normal mode - it's the default one. You can add components from palette to your MIDlet. You can move components - click on component with left mouse button, hold the button and move the component to new location. If you move component then its transitions will move too. New post will appear on component when you'll add command or list element to the component.
  2. Re-design mode - hold CTRL to switch to redesign mode -> there will appear red points in Flow design area. You can redesign port position or transition layout. Move the red points to redesign the layout.
Look at small demo of redesign of components layout in Flow design

May I know what software did you use to record the demo? It's nice.

I used Wink. It's free and easy to use. If you need more informations how to create a demo - look at Roumen's post about creating demo - part1, part2
