I found this bug when I accidentally copied an excel file and pasted it inside a TextInput control (I thought I had copied one of the cell in the spreadsheet).
Flex throws the following:
Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
This error came from inside the handlePasteOperation() method inside the RichEditableText.as.
Have any of you had this problem ? I cannot override the function because it is marked as private function. Any suggestions for workaround ?
I started a brand new project where I added all my code from the not functioning project. This, for some weird reason, solved it. I can now copy/paste as normal.
