I dispatch a customEvent from a class. The class extends EventDispatcher, and I can verify that the event does in fact get dispatched. But it's not getting picked up by the mxml component or the main application container. Bubbles is set to true. What am I missing here?
Only DisplayObjects can use bubbling=true and only when on the display list. Bubbling is generally bad practice except for UI input events. Define singletons that other parts of the app can talk directly to.
