Strange issue with MouseEvent

in a MenuMediator i have this (onRegister overrided):

eventMap.mapListener(menu, MouseEvent.CLICK, onMenuClick);

The "onMenuClick" callback is called just few times (sometimes 5, sometimes 20) but then stop to be called. The MouseEvent is always fired because if i use the classic


the function is always called at every click.

The eventMap works only if i have this tow lines togheter

eventMap.mapListener(menu, MouseEvent.CLICK, onMenuClick); menu.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, function(e:MouseEvent) {});

so, i have to add a classic listener (also with a blank callback) and it always work.

What's happened?!

Thank you

    Hi C,

    any chance that you're not holding on to your Robotlegs Context? As in - are you setting it to a member variable, or are you just doing

    var context:Context = new SomeContext(...);


    You need to be doing:

    _someContext = new SomeContext(...);

    That's the usual cause of timing sensitive issues. I expect that the use of the anonymous function is what is keeping it working with the second handler - that won't be removed when the mediator is destroyed.

    If it's not that, we'll help you chase it down further,

    You got it!

    I had this in my

    new MainContext(this);

    and now with

    _mainContext = new MainContext(this);

    all works correctly.

    Really thanx!
