I'm publishing a SWC from FlashCC for use in a FlashBuilder Air project and I get errors when I compile.
Inside of the SWC I have a MovieClip with a button component (fl.controls.Button). In Flash Builder I can make an instance of the MovieClip but when I run the app I get a coercion error:
cannot convert flash.display::MovieClip@56ebee1 to fl.controls.Button.
If I remove the button component from the MovieClip and recompile the SWC there's no error.
If i simply try to add a button instance like this:
var b:Button=new Button();
The button traces but I get this error
TypeError: Error #2007: Parameter child must be non-null
Is it possible the SWC tries to instantiate a class that is referenced through a library?
When adding a Button directly to the app I can solve the null problem by setting the default button styles, which are included in the SWC like this:
var btn:Button=new Button();
btn.setStyle( "upSkin", new Button_upSkin());
btn.setStyle( "downSkin", new Button_downSkin());
btn.setStyle( "overSkin", new Button_overSkin());
btn.setStyle( "disabledSkin", new Button_disabledSkin());
btn.setStyle( "selectedUpSkin", new Button_selectedUpSkin());
btn.setStyle( "selectedDownSkin", new Button_selectedDownSkin());
btn.setStyle( "selectedOverSkin", new Button_selectedOverSkin());
btn.setStyle( "selectedDisabledSkin", new Button_selectedDisabledSkin());
What I really want to do is avoid the coding and make button and other component instances inside of MovieClips in Flash and include them in the SWC.
I can get components to work with Flash Professional Projects, but this is an ActionScript Project, so I need the SWC.
