    Images going over the top of each other?


      In a result handler I have this:
      //add profile image
      var profileImg:Image = new Image;
      profileImg.source = (profileImage);

      It creates a profile image, the only problem is, when the result hadler is called again it puts another image over the top, is there any way I can get it to get rid of the old image befor the new one is added?

          Try removing the addChild part from the result handler or use the removeChild()/removeAllChildren() method and remove the profileImg object and then add it again.
          Hope this helps.

            If you are trying to add the image to the container the first time and update source in subsequent result handler calls you can put an if statement to check if the image exists in the container.

            To do this add - profileImg.id = "someName"
            Then you can do:
            if(profileImg.getChildByName("someName") != null)

            profileImageContainer.source = setTheSource.

            This way you are only adding the image once but updating the source whenever it changes.
