    Creation_Complete event not firing for custom component

    Cr99 Level 1

      I have a component instantiated in Actionscript:

       

      var chartControl:ChartControls = new ChartControls();

      chartControl.addEventListener(FlexEvent.CREATION_COMPLETE, initializeChartPanel);

       

      ChartControls is a VBox which also has a creationComplete method:

       

      <mx:VBox xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" creationComplete="init()">

       

      public function init():void {

          slider.setPanel(chartPanel);

          slider.setThumbValueAt(0,initWid);

          var evt:SliderEvent = new SliderEvent(SliderEvent.CHANGE,false,false,0,initWid);

          slider.dispatchEvent(evt);

      }

       

      Could that be causing it not to fire?  I've never had a problem getting events to fire, but this is the first time I've tried it with a custom component.  How can I get this working?
