Flex Component, Self Reference

Posted on 31 August 2008

I receive this questions quite often, “How do I self reference a Flex component?” — The answer is quite simple and obvious, however it is easily over looked.

Use the event object within the component along with currentTarget to set / get parameters from the current component.
An example click event to change the visibility of a component from within itself would be:
click=”event.currentTarget.visible=false;”
Enjoy.
