I'm trying to add animation to a component that I have several instances of, and it reaches across applications, so I'd rather not re-write the effects each time. But, the component in question is a s:Group, and when I toss in animations, it tells me: 'Sequence' declaration must be contained within the <Declarations> tag, since it is not assignable to the default property's element type 'mx.core.IVisualElement'. But, when I drop my declairation into fx:Declairations, it no longer works. I'm sure this is an easy thing to fix, but please help!
Never mind. I found it. I didn't specify an alphaFrom or alphaTo, and had the duration set for 2 miliseconds instead of 2 seconds Just putting my Sequence and my Parallels in my Declarations block does indeed work.
