    using custom component in actionscript

    rerobnett Community Member



      I have made a custom component in flash and converted it to a flex component. The component loads and works in the mxml file. However what I really want is to use the SWC in an actionscript class file.


      I am having a little trouble doing this.


      When I import the SWC what I find is the SWC name followed by "_fla" (someComponent_fla).  This seems to be the SWC since I can see the instances used in the component.


      The question I have is? How do I get a instance of this component. The example code shown below does not work.



      import SomeComponent_fla;
      var someComponent:SomeComponent_fla = new SomeComponent_fla();



      Please, where am i going wrong?
