Catching event's variables on a mapped command?

What is the best practice way to catch a parameter with a command. For example if I create a new event and set a variable on it.. how can I make sure my command catches this variable? and is this considered a bad practice?

    Hi Bryce,

    You can inject the event - make sure you use the exact type that fired:

    [Inject] public var someEvent:SomeEventType;

    this gives you access to the event that triggered the Command - and then you can pick up the properties as normal.

    Not bad practice at all - event injection is the basis of the CommandMap being useful!


    (Sorry about your thread being closed earlier - no idea how that happened)
