I recently started a new flash builder project in which I included some former actionscript 3 class I developed for flex 3.
Two of this classes make use of the function getChildByName() to retrieve 3 button contained in a Hbox (now HGroup) and then apply to this button some bindings and some action.
One thing I noticed while developing the rest of the application is that the name you give to a component is then referenced as the Id property in actionscript.
I'm using the spark components and I read the adobe reference regarding children handling and it says that the getChildByName method is not available when working with spark components.
Anyone has some advisment on this?
Thanks so much 4 the attention
The recommendation is to use "id" or store a list of components and search
