    How to add a container to the stage

    SiHoop Level 1

      The code below fails to add Test.mxml to the stage. If I change Test.mxml to be an HBox instead of a UIComponent, it works.What do I have to do to make the contents of Test show up in the TabNavigator if I keep Test as a UIComponent?

      Thank you!

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns:local="*" layout="vertical" creationComplete="init()">
      <mx:Script>
          <![CDATA[
              private function init():void{
                 
              }
          ]]>
      </mx:Script>
          <mx:Panel >        
               <mx:TabNavigator width="300" height="225">
                  <mx:VBox label="Login">
                      <mx:Text text="Instructions go here..." />
                  </mx:VBox>
                  <mx:VBox label="Instructor">
                      <local:Test id="test" />
                  </mx:VBox>
              </mx:TabNavigator>
          </mx:Panel>
      </mx:Application>

       

      Test.mxml

      <mx:UIComponent xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">
          <mx:HBox  id="scoreCard" >
              <mx:Text   text="Total Correct"/>
          </mx:HBox>
      </mx:UIComponent>
