    1046 error GeocoderEvent

    bnther Level 1

      I'm trying this yahoo maps application tutorial that I found in a Flash&Flex magazine and I'm stuck.  I keep getting the 1046; Type was not found or not compile time constant.  I'm pretty sure that I imported everything, but maybe not.  This is my first time with a 'GeocoderEvent'.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.


      Here's the code:

                      _yahooMap.init(_appId, mapHolder.width, mapHolder.height);

              // new address object
                      _address = new Address(value);
                      // success and failure events
                      _address.addEventListener(GeocoderEvent.GEOCODER_SUCCESS, address_geocoderSuccess);
                      _address.addEventListener(GeocoderEvent.GEOCODER_FAILURE, address_geocoderFailure);
              // geocoder success -- found the location
                 private function address_geocoderSuccess(evt:GeocoderEvent):void{

                      _yahooMap.centerLatLon = result.latlon;
                      //setting zoom
                      _yahooMap.zoomLevel = result.zoomLevel;
                  // geocoder failure -- didn't find the location
                  private function address_geocoderFailure(evt:GeocoderEvent):void{
                      Alert("Unable to get address " + _address.address);
