    [Flex 4] getElementById equivalent?

    mangemuck Level 1

      Is there a JavaScript getElementById equivalent in ActionScript?


      I've been searching the net and I found this["elementName"] but it just gives me the error (at runtime):

      Property X not found on Y and there is no default value


      The element is placed in another element, so I have also tried picContainer.this["elementName"] which gives me the error (before compiling):

      1084: Syntax error: expecting identifier before this.

      1086: Syntax error: expecting semicolon before rightbracket.


      However, the location of those errors are way offset.


      I have also tried picContainer["elementName"] which gives me (at runtime):
      Property pic0 not found on spark.components.BorderContainer and there is no default value.



      How can I reach an object by just knowing its ID? In JavaScript it's easy, but I have no idea how to do it in ActionScript?


      Best regards,
