    Getting null while trying to access component child

    uzairseedat Level 1

      I have a custom component based on Canvas and inside that canvas I have a Panel with id = "mainPanel".  The problem is whenever I try to access mainPanel from a setter method within the component, I get null. e.g.

       

      public function set Content(newValue:String):void

      {

      if(newValue != null)

           this.mainPanel.title = newValue;

      }

       

       

      Why am I getting error for trying to access a null reference? Help please.
