How can I pass variables to a popup?

Hi all,

When I open a popup I want to pass some values to it. For example I have a list of products and when I click on them I need to show a popup with the product details. I manage to open and close the pop up and I use the way you suggest in the docs to mediate it. I don't know how to pass the product_id to the popup in order to populate it with data...

    The way I have handled this is to do the following in my command (params passed on the custom event):

    public var event:ShowPopUpEvent;

    override public function execute():void

    protected function createPopUpWindow():void
    var popUpWindow:PopUpWindow = new PopUpWindow();
    PopUpManager.addPopUp(popUpWindow, contextView, true);

    Which should make the event available in the Mediator.

    public var event:ShowPopUpEvent;

    You should pass in your data to the pop up in the command

    Hah, no need to apologise ;-)

    Why do you think the data should be assigned to the popup in the command via property setting (just curious)? As opposed to simply ensuring the PopUp Mediator when registered has an Injection point defined to access this data?

    After thinking further I actually prefer your approach simon

    Can't think of a better way to do it :)
