Ok, I know how to create a default property in a custom .as
class so that when i use that class in mxml i can use the default
property but... does anyone know how (or if) i can set a default
property when i make an mxml component so that i can then use the
component, with a default property in my application mxml.
But no go. I get: "Initializer for 'MyPanel': values of type
MyPanel cannot be represented in text.
If I can't do it from the mxml component it's easy enough to
a) first create the component and then b) make an as3 class that
inherits from the component that has the defaultProperty meta tag
but the only purpose of that class would be to add a default
property to the component. It seems logical to me that you should
be able to add the default property directly to the component but
