Property Detail
cacheHeuristicproperty
cacheHeuristic:Boolean  [write-only]

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

Used by Flex to suggest bitmap caching for the object. If cachePolicy is UIComponentCachePolicy.AUTO, then cacheHeuristic is used to control the object's cacheAsBitmap property.


Implementation
    public function set cacheHeuristic(value:Boolean):void
cachePolicyproperty 
cachePolicy:String  [read-only]

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

Specifies the bitmap caching policy for this object. Possible values in MXML are "on", "off" and "auto" (default).

Possible values in ActionScript are UIComponentCachePolicy.ON, UIComponentCachePolicy.OFF and UIComponentCachePolicy.AUTO (default).


Implementation
    public function get cachePolicy():String
descriptorproperty 
descriptor:UIComponentDescriptor

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

Reference to the UIComponentDescriptor, if any, that was used by the createComponentFromDescriptor() method to create this UIComponent instance. If this UIComponent instance was not created from a descriptor, this property is null.


Implementation
    public function get descriptor():UIComponentDescriptor
    public function set descriptor(value:UIComponentDescriptor):void
idproperty 
id:String

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

ID of the component. This value becomes the instance name of the object and should not contain any white space or special characters. Each component throughout an application should have a unique id.

If your application is going to be tested by third party tools, give each component a meaningful id. Testing tools use ids to represent the control in their scripts and having a meaningful name can make scripts more readable. For example, set the value of a button to submit_button rather than b1 or button1.


Implementation
    public function get id():String
    public function set id(value:String):void
Method Detail
createReferenceOnParentDocument()method
public function createReferenceOnParentDocument(parentDocument:IFlexDisplayObject):void

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

Creates an id reference to this IUIComponent object on its parent document object. This function can create multidimensional references such as b[2][4] for objects inside one or more repeaters. If the indices are null, it creates a simple non-Array reference.

Parameters

parentDocument:IFlexDisplayObject — The parent of this IUIComponent object.

deleteReferenceOnParentDocument()method 
public function deleteReferenceOnParentDocument(parentDocument:IFlexDisplayObject):void

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

Deletes the id reference to this IUIComponent object on its parent document object. This function can delete from multidimensional references such as b[2][4] for objects inside one or more Repeaters. If the indices are null, it deletes the simple non-Array reference.

Parameters

parentDocument:IFlexDisplayObject — The parent of this IUIComponent object.

executeBindings()method 
public function executeBindings(recurse:Boolean = false):void

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

Executes all the bindings for which the UIComponent object is the destination.

Parameters

recurse:Boolean (default = false) — Recursively execute bindings for children of this component.

registerEffects()method 
public function registerEffects(effects:Array):void

Language Version : ActionScript 3.0
Product Version : Flex 3
Runtime Versions : Flash Player 9, AIR 1.1

For each effect event, register the EffectManager as one of the event listeners.

Parameters

effects:Array — An Array of strings of effect names.
