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");
I have defined the following MetaData tag as well;
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.
Is the SwitchToMonitor event class really just in the event package, in the src/event/ folder of your project?
