    how to obtain bitmapData from an Image control


      Can someone help me understand this. I know I can use the "embed" tag to get the MXML compiler to associate a .jpg to a class and from there create a BitmapAsset object - and then get at its "bitmapData".

      I am loading .jpg files from a server dynamically using the Image control. I don't think the Image control has a "bitmapData" property. How do I go about getting a BitmapAsset from an Image control?

      Those of you knowledgeable types rummaging through here to help out the noobs - ty very much in advance.
