Animate components in a view

Since the last post (Using CSS3 animations on Sencha Touch) was about animations, and I stumbled upon this question at Sencha’s forum, I thought I would develop a simple demo showing how to take a view, and animate random components inside it.

Obviously there are simple page animations, such as with a card layout, but I’m looking for the right approach to animate an object like a button – for example to get it to fly in from the side after a delay, after the view is loaded.

Here’s hoping someone will take pity on me, and spell it out!
