Mapping event with second type to command is not working

I am doing enhancements to existing Robotlegs2 web app.
So my popup dispatches event of type1, which main app listens to,
so on that event Command calls Service, which in calls remote Java service,
which calls DB via Spring JDBC template, and returns me status string
(success or some Error).
Now I am adding a second type - type2, and the rest is similar (except I pass extra params to Stored Proc 2).

For some reason I see Event dispatched, but Commend for type2 is NOT getting executed.
Is there a limitation that I can't do:
moduleCommandMap.mapEvent(ChangePasswordEvent.type1, ChangePasswordRequestCommand, ChangePasswordEvent);
moduleCommandMap.mapEvent(ChangePasswordEvent.type2, ChangePasswordRequestCommand, ChangePasswordEvent);

What else might be missing or wrong?

I am fairly new to Robotlegs2.
Please help.

    Hi Oleg,
    Sorry for the late response. I haven't received any notifications about your message, and since you've marked the discussion as private, I didn't see it on the forum's web page either, until now. Is there any reason you want this discussion to be private, or it just happened by accident?
    To your question:
    There is no limitation on the number of events or event types mapped to a command.
    In robotlegs 2 the mapping should look like this:

    public class SomeConfig implements IConfig
        public var commandMap:IEventCommandMap;
        public function configure():void
  , SomeEvent).toCommand(SomeCommand);
  , SomeEvent).toCommand(SomeCommand);
   OTHER_TYPE, SomeEvent).toCommand(AnotherCommand);

    What is moduleCommandMap in your example? Is it just the name of the variable of type IEventCommandMap?

    Now I am adding a second type - type2, and the rest is similar (except I pass extra params to Stored Proc 2).

    If your event is carrying a payload ( the params ?), you need to inject the event into your command, so that you can access the params there:

    public var event: ChangePasswordEvent;
    public function execute():void

    If that doesn't solve your problem, please show the code (or an example) where your command is trying to access the event's payload.

    I was able to resolve it:in second case user is entering there through deep linking,(parent of popup is different)so I needed to use different context Thank you for your help, Oleg.
