    Changing a Button to a UIComponent

    SiHoop Level 1
      I've been using the class below to serve as an item renderer to bring a button into a datagrid. I now want to make it more interactive by replacing the button with the MovieClipExample class that is a UIComponent that contains event handlers and an animation. My problem is that I cannot figure out how to bring the MovieClipExample class into the item renderer to replace the button. How should I do this?

          assuming MovieClipExample class file and the renderer MXML files are in the same project, in the same folder, add the following to the <mx:Canvas> line:

          xmlns:local="*"

          or if the class is some other package use this notation:

          xmlns:local="package1.*"

          That would look like:

          <mx:Canvas xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
          xmlns:local="*"
          implements="mx.controls.listClasses.IDropInListItemRenderer">

          Then for the button part, just do a:

          <local:MovieClipExample/>

          Hope this helps.
