I'm running into the same problem using example code from Flash Help. I checked "Adobe Flash CS3/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/Classes" and the control source files are not present in that or any nested directory. I originally thought it was because I installed CS3 in "~/Applications" instead of the default "/Applications" but after uninstalling and reinstalling in the default location, that doesn't appear to be the case.
I would also appreciate any suggestions.
do you have a combobox in your library?
Gah, no. And adding one (by double-clicking in the component pane and then deleting the instance from the stage) clears up the issue. I haven't touched Flash in about 2 versions or so, I assumed the verbosity of and updates to ActionScript 3.0 negated the need to manually manage native assets (like components) within the library. (It'd be lovely if the "import fl.controls.ComboBox" took care of adding the necessary assets to the library at compile time, or, at the very least, if the Help examples and the "Using examples" section mentioned this requirement. *Glares in Adobe's direction.*)
Thanks for the suggestion kglad.
