    Event is unavailable??????

    Mohd Fayaz Level 1

      I have defined a custom Event called SwitchToMonitorTab in action script and have dispatched the same in a component "Componenet1" as follows:

       

           var e:SwitchToMonitor = new SwitchToMonitor("Acura","goToMonitorTab");
           dispatchEvent(e);

       

      I have defined the following MetaData tag as well;

       

          <mx:Metadata>
              [Event(name="goToMonitorTab",type="event.SwitchToMonitor")]
          </mx:Metadata>

       

       

       

      However, in the instantaion of Component1 (in another component ), when I try to listen to this event It is giving the following error

       

                          Event type 'event:SwitchToMonitor' is unavailable

       

      I am instantiating the Componenet1, something like this:

       

      <Component1 width="40%" height="140" x="5" y="93" goToMonitorTab="gotoMonitorTab(event)"/>    // The error is on this line

       

      Please someone help me out on this issue?

          Try making sure your metadata's type attribute specifies the fully qualified package name of the event.

           

          [Event(name="goToMonitorTab",type="event.SwitchToMonitor")]

           

          Is the SwitchToMonitor event class really just in the event package, in the src/event/ folder of your project?
