eventMap.mapListener question

In my view I'm dispatching an event when a UI component is interacted with. In the mediator for that view I have the following snippet of code.

`[Inject] public var view:ApplicationShell;

override public function onRegister():void

// Listen for framework events
eventMap.mapListener(eventDispatcher, ConfigEvent.LOADED, handleConfigLoaded);

// Listen for view events
eventMap.mapListener(view, ModuleEvent.LOAD, dispatch, ModuleEvent);

// Load the config file
dispatch(new ConfigEvent(ConfigEvent.LOAD, FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.parameters.profile));


The following command is mapped in my context.

commandMap.mapEvent(ModuleEvent.LOAD, LoadModuleCommand, ModuleEvent);

The only way I can get this command to fire is by using the following snippet of code to setup the view event listener.

addViewListener(ModuleEvent.LOAD, handleModuleLoad, ModuleEvent);

Shouldn't the eventMap.mapListener method work for setting up the view event listener?

    if I'm not wrong if you dispatch ModuleEvent.LOAD into your view your command will be called. Did you try that and if yes what was the result ?

    P.S. don't forget to override the clone method into your custom events.

    Thanks for the help, the issue was that I didn't override the clone method in my custom events.
