Injecting a view into another view

Classic question, but even after reading the post in the forum, i can't make it work

I want to inject a instance of View 1 into View2.

In my context, I have

injector.mapValue(View1, view1Instance); viewMap.mapType(View2);

In View2, I have

[Inject] view1Instance : View1;

But view1Instance is always null when I instance View2

What I am missing ?

    Hi poq,

    You can’t inject into views in the latest versions of rl1. You’d need the mediator of View2 to provide the view with an injector like this:

    public var injector:IInjector;
    public var view:View2;
    override public function onRegister():void

    You map View1 like this:

    injector.mapValue(View1, new View1());

    and in your View2 you inject it like this:

    [Inject] public var view1:View1;

    Hope that helps :)

    Hi Ondina,

    Great, it works!

    For those interrested, I had to use a [PostConstruct] init function in order to get it worked!

        public function init():void
            trace(view2, 'to check if it is null'); // And it is not!!
