Hello there. I'm having a nightmare trying to get metadata
tags to do what I expect them to. I've used the following code to
define a variable in a custom MXML component, (in the proper place
in the script tag of course)
public var myValue:Boolean;
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'd expect to see an entry named
"Test Value" in the flex builder property inspector with a default
value of "false". This is not what I'm getting. On adding the
custom component to my application the variable in question is
listed as "myVar" in the property inspector and there is no value
assigned to it at all.
I'm having this problem even when cutting and pasting the
example code for metatag usage from the help docs. I've tried
downloading program updates with no luck. Am I missunderstanding
what's happening here? Does the component need to be pre-compiled
in some way before the metatags take effect? If so can you point me
in the right direction in the documentation so I can do this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is one of those
silly littly problems that's driving me round the bend.
