If the components are not icons, then you have to add an action on each of the components like “onRelease open:start/layer1/web.mag.page2”. The flipAlign value is determined automatically if the flipRichTextListName is defined.

For the top left corner: onPress layout.startFlip onPress silex.config.flipAlign=TopLeft

For the top right corner: onPress layout.startFlip onPress silex.config.flipAlign=TopRight

For the bottom left corner: onPress layout.startFlip onPress silex.config.flipAlign=BottomLeft

For the bottom right corner: onPress layout.startFlip onPress silex.config.flipAlign=BottomRight
