    Pass Custom Event Data


      Hi guys..

         I am trying to pass custom event data from 1 class to another class...here is my codes..




          private function onClick(event:MouseEvent):void{

             dispatchEvent(new YouTubeSearchEvent(YouTubeSearchEvent.CHANGE_VIDEO_READY, videoId));





          private var newVideoID:String;


          public function get selectedVideoID():String{

          return newVideoID;




          private function buildSingleCont(videoResult:Array):void{


          tn=new a();


              tn.addEventListener(YouTubeSearchEvent.CHANGE_VIDEO_READY, getNewVideoID);




          private function getNewVideoID(event:YouTubeSearchEvent):void{








           // this is the main class.....

          private var newvideoida:String;

          public function c(){

           createSearchContainer()  //this method is called before b.as and c.as are called...



          private function createSearchContainer():void{

          searchContainer=new SearchResultContainer();

          newvideoida=searchContainer.selectedVideoID; //I want to get b.as newVideoID variable

          trace(newvideoida);  //display nothing.....






      I appreciate any help..

          Hi Jerry,


          What is the code in the SearchResultContainer file...


          In what way do you think you can get new Video Id  by using the statement newvideoida= searchContainer.selectedVideoID


          What is the relation where you have set the videoId in b.as so that you are accessing in SearchResultContainer file..

            Sorry for the confusion...


            SearchResultContainer()  is actually b.as

            I forgot to change it when I posted here...




            newvideoida= searchContainer.selectedVideoID

            =newvideoida= b.selectedVideoID

              Hi Jerry,


              Few questions come to my mind...by seeing your code posted...


              1) Do you have any public variable or property selectedVideoID in b.as (This was not seen in b.as file)


              2) When your YouTubeSearchEvent.CHANGE_VIDEO_READY event is dispatched in your a.as file which is called in onClick()

              3) Just by creating an instance to b.as file ...Do you get the video Id populated in b.as file.....

                  searchContainer=new SearchResultContainer();


              Your code I think is not fully clear ...and you missed some part of the code being posted..
