The Flex Show - Creating Flex Components - Episode 11: Events and Property Changes

This is the eleventh episode of our video series on creating Flex Components. This is a series of screencasts designed to teach you how to build a component in Flex, starting from nothing and moving up to a finished component.

In this episode we show you how to handle property changes inside the component and create our own custom event class. We also touch on a few bug fixes left over from the previous episode.

Jeffry Houser's Gravatar Nikunj,

Without reviewing code, I'm not sure what the problem could be. Have you tried sites like Stack Overflow or the Adobe Forums?
