    Using external Model file for UI

    LordPathogen
      Hi, I'm creating and external .xml file for common UI strings used by labels, DataGrid headers etc. like so:
      <UI_Labels>

      <resultsGrids>
      <closures>
      <label>Closures</label>
      <tooltip>The number of SRs closed in a month</tooltip>
      </closures>
      </resultsGrids>
      </UI_Labels>

      I reference the above in my main .mxml file like so:
      <mx:Model source="models/UI_Labels.xml" id="uiLabelModel" />

      Finally, I try to use it in the same file like this:
      <mx:Text text="{uiLabelModel.resultsGrids.closures.label}" />

      Basically, it compiles fine but when it tries to render, it hangs. Any idea what I am doing wrong here? Thanks!
