So I'm nearing the end of developing my application. I create
a new state and add some standard as well as custom components to
the state. Test it out everything is okay. I work on it all day
getting the logic for the custom components right. Then I add in a
new component. Looks okay. Work on this new component. Debug. Edit.
Debug. Then all of a sudden none of the components appear when I
change to that state. WTF! All of the components are on there. They
are all "visible=true" but I can't see ANY of them.
To solve the problem I had to recreate the component in MXML
instead of Actionscript. Same settings, components and everything.
It seems that state changes tend to be less stable if custom
Actionscript components are used instead of custom MXML
