    binding to resourceManager from ActionScript

    marcbc Level 1
      Hi all,
      I was starting my first Flex multilanguage application, and when trying to use the resourceManger to use language properties files, I relised how different it is to do it from mxml and from ActionScript.

      for mxml I can do bindings like...

      <mx:Text id="theText" text="{resourceManager.getString('messages','didYouMean')}" />


      while if I declare the same Text component in ActionScript, I should do...


      ...
      resourceManager.addEventListener(flash.events.Event.CHANGE,langChangeHandler);
      theText.text = resourceManager.getString('messages', 'didYouMean');
      ...
      public function langChangeHandler(event:Event):void {
      theText.text = resourceManager.getString('messages', 'didYouMean');
      }


      I am missing something or this is the way to do it in ActionScript?

      thanks in advance,

      Marc
