    Null data on dataChange event


      I have a custom ItemRenderer that utilizes the dataChange event to calculate various bits and bobs when the data changes, it works fine the first time the data is loaded but the second time it gives me a;


      TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference


      I dismiss it and it works fine from then on...


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

      <s:ItemRenderer xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"



                                              autoDrawBackground="true" dataChange="init()">




                                    import mx.controls.Alert;

                                    import mx.controls.ToolTip;

                                    import mx.core.DragSource;

                                    import mx.core.IUIComponent;

                                    import mx.events.DragEvent;

                                    import mx.events.FlexEvent;

                                    import mx.events.ResizeEvent;

                                    import mx.managers.DragManager;

                                    import mx.managers.ToolTipManager;


                                    import spark.components.BorderContainer;

                                    import spark.components.Image;

                                    import spark.primitives.BitmapImage;

                                    import spark.primitives.Ellipse;


                                    protected function init():void


                                              switch (data.product_style_description)



      It is at the  switch (data.product_style_description) line where it throws the error, I have used debugged the code and I seem to have that data... any help would be much appreciated.
