keep a screen under the new pushed screen #739

I'm developing an mobile client for the bb10 platform using bbui.

This is my use case

I have a screen (dashboard.html) with an action bar like this:

The dashboard load dinamically the stream of the user from servers and populate a custom list of messages.
When I click on a message I wish to push a userprofile.html screen with the user's info and a back button to the dashboard.
Actually bbui pop out the dashboard.html and push the userprofile.html.

This behaviour has two issues:

  • I have to "render" the custom list again
  • I need some hacks to remember which element has been clicked because I need to scrollTo this element once the list has been re-rendered

It should be much easier for me if there's a way to push userprofile.html on top of dashboard.html and just pop out userprofile.html on back click.

There currently isn't a way to keep the previous screen still open and layer the new screen on top of it. That functionality is being tracked in issue #235

There are workarounds that can be done to go back to certain scroll positions outlined in issue #333
