I have a lot of widgets and my dashboard in Flex Viewer 2 has gotten cluttered. How can I add menus to the dashboard rather than buttons to organize the widgets? Any help will be appreciated.

You need to add your widgets to the config="widgets/HeaderController/**HeaderControllerWidget.xml

Thank you very much for the reply but I am not blessed with the answer yet. The 'Good Example' link does not work. It pops up message saying 'SWF is not a loadable module'. Please can you provide me another good example link or something useful. – Omega Cancer Apr 19 '11 at 3:40
Good Example link does work on all computers (4 of them) that I have access to. – Mapperz Apr 23 '11 at 3:22

You can use <widgetgroup> to group several widgets shown in the HeaderController into one group/folder.

You can see a live example at

It's also described in the documentation at

<widgetcontainer layout="float">
    <widgetgroup label="Locators">
        <widget label="Find U.S. address"
        <widget label="Find European addresses"
