trouble understanding event injection as seen in robotlegs.demos.flashgooglemaps

public class GeoCodingCommand extends Command
    public var service:GeoCodingService;

    public var event:SystemEvent;
    //  Overridden API
    override public function execute():void
        service.requestGeocoding(, event.body.address);

I do not understand how the code from 'robotlegs.demos.flashgooglemaps' seen above avoids throwing this Error:

        Injector is missing a rule to handle injection into target ...

My similar code throws the above Error unless I include something like:

        var event:SystemEvent = new SystemEvent(SystemEvent.CONSTANT);
        injector.mapValue(SystemEvent, event);

    The CommandMap sets up a temporary rule that maps the event (by it's concrete class) for injection just before execute() is called:

    The injection must be exactly the same event class that triggers the Command. So, if this triggers the command:

    dispatch(new CrazyEvent(CrazyEvent.BOOM));

    The injection in the command must be specified like this:

    [Inject] public var event:CrazyEvent;

    This will not work:

    [Inject] public var event:Event;

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you're still getting an error.

    thanks much for your explanation.

    my code now works, but I had to:
    commandMap.mapEvent(ModelEvent.REQUEST_LOAD, RequestLoadCommand, ModelEvent);
    dispatchEvent(new ContextEvent(ContextEvent.STARTUP));

    previously I had this in my Context::startup:
    commandMap.mapEvent(ModelEvent.REQUEST_LOAD, RequestLoadCommand, ModelEvent);

    ... somehow the mapping needs to be done in response to ContextEvent.STARTUP rather than Context.startup
