    Compiling Modified SDK ComboBox in a SWC not Working

    Gregory Lafrance Level 6

      I needed to overcome the SDK issue with the MX ComboBox not updating when the dataProvider is updated:




      A comment suggests overriding the ComboBox dataProvider setter:


      override public function set dataProvider(value:Object):void


      // The dropdown will not be properly reset unless it is currently shown.


      super.dataProvider = value;



      Because I don't want to override ComboBox, but rather recompile the MX one after modifying the dataProvider setter, I compile like this:


      compc -source-path="C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.5\sdks\3.5.0\frameworks\projects\framework\src"  -include-classes=mx.controls.ComboBox -output=ComboBox.swc


      But when I add that SWC to my project, I get weird errors, like stuff referenced within the ComboBox are null.


      Is this the wrong approach? I'd rather not extend ComboBox, because then I have to make changes throughout the app to reference it, and just modifying/compiling the MX ComboBox seems much cleaner.
