I have a MXML component with various child components within. My question is:
Are the child components initiated when the MXML component is initialized in AS (i.e. var instance:MyComponent = new MyComponent();)?
The reason I'm asking this is because the child components are null after the component is initialized in AS when stepping through with the debugger.
See creationPolicy, createChildren and references to deferred instantiation in the doc. Children are not created in the constructor for performance reasons.
