Can't declare custom event in component..

Apr 3, 2012 4:51 PM

Hi guys, I am trying to create a datagrid component and want it to dispatch an event to the main application when datagrid is created. However, I got errors saying

"Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant:dataGridComp"

"Call to a posibly undefined methoud dataGridComp"



my component


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<s:Group xmlns:fx=""




    <fx:Metadata>   //declare my event

        [Event(name="dataGridComp", type="")]







            protected function dataGrid_creationCompleteHandler(event:FlexEvent):void


                // TODO Auto-generated method stub

                 var e:dataGridComp = new dataGridComp("dataGridComp"); //problem here

                dispatchEvent(e);   //want to dispatch my event object when the datagrid is created






    <s:DataGrid id="dataGrid" editable="true" x="51" y="34" width="734" height="153"

                creationComplete="dataGrid_creationCompleteHandler(event)" requestedRowCount="4">






Any idea how to solve this? I appreciate any help. Thanks a lot.
