Robotlegs 2: CalloutButton content mediation

Nothing too complicated, but took me some time to figure out.
Here's an example:


<?xml version="1.0"?>

    <views:ConnectionForm id="connectionForm" />


package fr.edumedia.lily.mvcs.views {

    import robotlegs.bender.bundles.mvcs.Mediator;
    import robotlegs.bender.extensions.mediatorMap.api.IMediatorMap;

    public class ConnectionButtonMediator extends Mediator {

        public var view:ConnectionButton;

        public var mediatorMap:IMediatorMap;

        override public function initialize():void {
            addViewListener(DropDownEvent.OPEN, mediateForm);

        protected function mediateForm(e:DropDownEvent):void {


Hope this helps!

    Note that is won't mediate any children in your pop up view. To do that you could inject IViewManager into your mediator and change mediatorMap.mediate to viewManager.addContainer.

    Well unfortunately no, that really doesn't work...

    The first time you open the callout it shows the callout content and then adds the container to the view manager, so the content is not mediated.

    The second time you open the callout its content is shown and mediated.

    There's some kind of race condition happening here. Don't know which event to listen to to prevent this from happening. Any suggestion?

    Sorry, I haven't forgotten about this.. just busy at the mo.

    I imagine that the callout is already on stage by the time addContainer is called. I'll take a look at how the StageCrawler might help here. It might take a while to free up some time though, so please remind me in a couple of days if I forget.
