    Can I pass a pointer to a class?

    stevemcl5

      Is there a way to copy a pointer of a data class ?

       

      I have an event with a Student class (studentid, lastname, firstname) and I want to pass the address of the original student in the event, so that the eventListener can modify the original Student.

       

      How can this be done?

       

      The custom event  has a  var student:Student ;

      when I create a new event:

       

      var myEvent:StudentEvent = new StudentEvent('clicked');

      myEvent.student = clickedStudent;

       

      then myEvent.student is a copy of clickedStudent,

      I want them to be the same object.

      thanks,

      steve
