    Flash Component swc and components panel question

    microwebber

      EDIT:

      I did not use the mxi file to install the component.  Now it is installed, but within my directory it shows 2 more components.  The List, and Label component are there.

      I thought only my component would be there.  Should I delete these from my the library?

       

      I tried deleting them.  That was a bad idea.

      Should I just leave them?

      Is that the way extended components show in the components panel?

       

      //////////////////////////////////////////

      I'm creating a tree component for as3.  I've followed the instructions on this page, up to 9

      http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/articles/creating_as3_components_pt9.html

       

      And it works if I drag the comonent from my component file to any file I want to use it in.

       

      But it doesn't work if I try to export the component as a swc to the same directory, then copy that swc to the User Interface directory.

       

      I refresh the component panel,  and it appears, but when I drag it from the components panel to a new file, the assets are not imported.

      Only the component itself.

       

      Do I need to install the fla somewhere?
