          <?xml version="1.0"?>
          <!-- modules/ModuleLoaderApp.mxml -->
          <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" creationComplete="initApp()">
                  import mx.events.ModuleEvent;
                  import mx.modules.ModuleManager;
                  import mx.modules.IModuleInfo;
                  public var info:IModuleInfo;
                  private function initApp():void {
                      info = ModuleManager.getModule("ColumnChartModule.swf");
                      info.addEventListener(ModuleEvent.READY, modEventHandler);           
                      // Load the module into memory. Calling load() makes the
                      // IFlexModuleFactory available. You can then get an
                      // instance of the class using the factory's create()
                      // method.
                  private function modEventHandler(e:ModuleEvent):void {
                      // Add an instance of the module's class to the
                      // display list.
                      vb1.addChild(info.factory.create() as ColumnChartModule);
              <mx:VBox id="vb1"/>

            If I declare a moduleloader object in mxml it works.
            <mx:ModuleLoader url="modules/workalert_mod.swf"
                  id="AllStaffLoader" width="100%" height="292"
                  x="0" y="475"  x.workAlert="1" y.workAlert="478"/>
            But I want to dynamically load a module, so I try to do this using modulemanager.
            private var WorkAlert:Class;
            protected function application_initializeHandler():void
              module = ModuleManager.getModule("modules/workalert_mod.swf");
            /* the event never dispatch, Why ? */
            /* I can't do angthing, because there is no error at runtime at all */
              module.addEventListener(ModuleEvent.READY, moduleReadyHandler);
            /* it doesn't run actually*/
              private function moduleReadyHandler(e:ModuleEvent):void{
                case "module/workalert_mod.swf":
                AllStaffLoader.addChild(module.factory.create() as DisplayObject);
