    What does "=" mean?


      I mean, I know what it means in the usual sense, like:


      var thing:String = new String();


      I copied the code in: Using Flex 4.5 / Enhancing the user interface / Drag and drop / Manually adding drag-and-drop support


      but I didn't know what this line meant:


      var dragInitiator:Canvas=Canvas(event.currentTarget);


      I don't think it's a constructor, because the object Canvas doesn't take any arguments in its constructor.  I'm just not sure what that is.  Can anyone help?
