MX layout containers

In Adobe® Flex®, MX layout containers provide a hierarchical structure to arrange and configure the components, such as Button and ComboBox controls, of a Flex application.

For detailed information on how Flex lays out containers and their children, see Laying out components.

Flex also provides a set of Spark containers. These containers are designed to simplify skinning and optimize performance. Adobe recommends that you use the Spark containers when possible. For more information, see Spark containers.
