    Cannot delete child on change state!

      OK, I've go an app with two states. The base state has a panel, app control bar, and a viewstack. The second state should delte all of those and add a title window.

      I created the second state,use AddChild to add the title window and removeChild to remove the IDs of the above items. I set a button to click="this.currentState='second'". I get this error:
      quote:


      ArgumentError: Error #2025: The supplied DisplayObject must be a child of the caller.

      OK, I wrapped the whole first screen in a canvas, and then use only one removeChild to remove the canvas. This works, but then my App Control Bar is not docked. So I try moving the app control bar out of the canvas and adding its ID as a remove child. The error happens again!!

      I have even tried adding removeChilds for the app control bar and its child linkbar, same thing.

      What's going on here?
