Creating and using hierarchies of widgets

This recipe looks at the relationship between widgets. We are going to build a scrollable panel that contains another panel that is filled with an array of buttons and then demonstrate how they respond as a single unit.

Getting ready

Load up PlayStation Mobile Studio and create a new project. Add a reference to Sce.PlayStation.HighLevel.UI. The project is available in Ch6_Example3.

How to do it...

Open AppMain.cs and edit the code to match the following:

using System;
using Sce.PlayStation.Core;
using Sce.PlayStation.Core.Graphics;
using Sce.PlayStation.Core.Input;
using Sce.PlayStation.HighLevel.UI;

namespace Ch6_Example3
  public class AppMain {
    public static void Main() {
      GraphicsContext graphics = new GraphicsContext();
      var scene = new Sce.PlayStation.HighLevel.UI.Scene();
      var scrollPanel = new Sce.PlayStation.HighLevel.UI.ScrollPanel();
