    passing arguments to PopUp

    Mohd Fayaz Level 1

      Hi all,


      How can we pass arguments(like strings, array etc.) to PopUp window. I am using TitleWindow class to create PopUp.

          If your component that you are goung to use as a PopUp declare a variable as public and it'll be accesible from your parent app.

            From the parent, you can call the PopUp with something like this:


            public var yourvariable:String = "Hello!";


            public function callPopup():void {
                var thePopUp:YourPopUp = PopUpManager.createPopUp(this, YourPopUp, true) as YourPopUp;

                //you can set the popups title with this if you want

                thePopUp.title = "Some Title";


                //here you send a variable to the popup
                thePopUp.varInPopUp = yourvariable;

                //style the popup if you want

                thePopUp.setStyle("borderAlpha", 0.9);


                //center the popup


            Then in your TitleWindow, simply declase the varInPopUp like this:



            public var varInPopUp:String;


            Then you can simply use it in the TitleWindow.
