Hi - I've just finished creating a custom component. During
development I've been dragging the component to the stage in the
ide and it has been working fine. However, now I've come to try to
create it dynamically eg
var newinstance:Mycomponent = new Mycomponent();
I've got a problem.
Access to all my methods disappears including the
addeventlistener method. Flash moans that there is no method named
If I put my component definition in the first frame and the
method calls and event listener stuff in the second frame, then
flash no longer complains and I can trace all the properties etc
but the events aren't fired.
So it seems there are two problems. The first I think has to
do with #initclip stuff in component movieclip. In there I'm
calling this.registerClass(...) as instructed but I have a feeling
from what I've read that there should be something else going on in
there to initialise the component when it's dynamically created.
The second is something to do with eventdispatching, how is it that
something so simple can take so long to figure out. I must be
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
btw I've tried using createClassComponent and attachmovie
with the same results.
