    Reference Parent Public Vars/Methods

    Francisc Level 3



      How can I reference a TitleWindow's parent's public variables or functions?

      The TitleWindow is opened as a Window using the PopUpManager Class.


      Thank you!

          There is a parent property available for TitleWindow.


          By typecasting it to your parent class you can call public functions.


          Hope this helps

            Or, you could reference the TitleWindow in some variable prior to opening it in the PopupManager:


            In your main app:


            public var tw:TitleWindow;


            Somewhere inside your app:


            this.parentApplication.tw = PopUpManager.createPopUp(this, TitleWindow) as TitleWindow;



            now you can address all the public properties of the window using the reference 'tw'.


            TIP: If you have to hold global variables for use in your application, you'd better create a singleton Class with all these variables.

            From anywhere in your application, you can then call MyGlobalClass.getInstance().myVar.


            If you don't know what I'm talking about, let me know so I can post an example

              Thank you both.


              I've used the less-code method Rush-Me posted, only using Application.application.myVar etc.
