          I'm not sure I understand you correctly.

          Are you looking for events? preinitialize is the earliest one I know of off hand, then initialize, then creationComplete. There are others.

          However, that does not sound like it will help with what you describe. Give me an example of what you are trying to accomplish.

          For question 2, are you trying to create a component that has NO graphical presence? If so, then yes, you will need to create the component using Actionscript. Depending on what functionality you do or do not need, you can extend a component, implement an interface, of create an entirely custom component.
