Ability to override internal SDK class?

Hi all,

I'm not sure whether this is a pure Robotlegs question, or more general Flex problem - but was wondering whether there was a way in Robotlegs to override an internal class to the SDK.
We're running 3.3; and the issue we're getting is arouind errorstrings running off the screen, as mentioned here: https://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/SDK-18693

The solution, it seems, is to override the ToolTipManagerImpl.as class with a patched version rather than building a custom SDK.

Anyone know there is a way to do this (easily) in Robotlegs?

    It's purely Flex problem. You don't need to override the implementation. Just use the solution as provided in comments:

    private static var classConstructed:Boolean = staticInitializer(); 
    private static function staticInitializer():Boolean 
        return true; 

    Fix the problem in your own Impl class (copied from Flex's ToolTipManagerImpl to your own class), Put this piece of code into your main app class
