I’m planning to use tapbar menu like picture below. In this case, I will have 4 buttons, each one will be a different function. Once we enter in a option, we often to use the CLOSE SCREEN block to close and come back to the previous one. But in this case, the menu will be always on the bottom of the screen and the user can tap one of them when he wants. In this case, which are the best pratices in doing this?
Thanks for your answer, @Sander. What I want to understand, is when I click in the button, it opens a screen, etc, etc… but instead of use the left arrow to come back, the user click on another option of the menu, so how to close the previous screen? Because of it, I’m asking for the best practices, in order to not use a huge amount of memory with opened screens…
@Diego, thanks for your answer. Maybe I was not clear. In my case, I have created a Horizontal Arrangement to have 5 buttons. Each button has 56 px (height) and 20 % (width). So, my problem is how to create an image that contains an icon and the text, presuming that I don’t even know the real width of the button, I have only the height (56 px). So, in this case, how do you produce images like I showed in my last post, in order to have a good result.
Yeah, and I’m saying that you can use a Button with a background image that you would have done with Photoshop or paint (which contains an icon and text)
And do that foreach button inside the Horizontal Alignment
Ok, but how do you define the WIDTH of the background image, even in photoshop or Corel or Fireworks, once you just defined the button with 20% (assuming that there are 5 buttons, so 100%/5 = 20%). That’s my question.
