Event dispatched from a command is not received.

I have a command that is set up like this in the startup of the Context:

commandMap.mapEvent(MainEvent.INIT_APP, AppInitCommand, MainEvent, true);
var initEvent:MainEvent = new MainEvent(MainEvent.INIT_APP);

The command executes fine. Then in the command I have this:

loginEvent = new LoginEvent(LoginEvent.ACTIVATE_ACCOUNT);
loginEvent.sessionId = o.sessionId;

In a mediator I have this:
eventMap.mapListener(eventDispatcher, LoginEvent.ACTIVATE_ACCOUNT, activateAccount);

But the mediator never seems to be receiving the event. Obviously I need to change what I am doing somewhere. Is it that only the context can receive the event? Should my app init code be in the mediator instead? I definitely overrode the clone in the Event. Thanks for any help.

    check that the onRegister method of the mediator is fired
    if its not the mediator has not been created yet...
    so check that the view has been attached.

    this is most prob a timing issue

    must go... wife calling me to supper table, and I'm gonna get it

    @nail is right I think. Probably your view is not added on the stage when you call dispatchEvent(initEvent); I.e. the onRegister method of the mediator is not called and the listener for LoginEvent.ACTIVATE_ACCOUNT is not added.

    Thanks guys, that was the case. Now I dispatch the event in the onRegister of the Mediator and it works.
