Hi All,

We are in the phase of migrating our application based on parsley 2.3 to parsley 3.0 and we are getting context as null. I am mentioning the steps that we are following and which were working fine with 2.3 version of parsley.

1)creating the context with the help of contextbuilder tag present in mxml.Below is the screen shot of some the code lines:

<parsley:FlexConfig type="{AbcConfig}"/>

2)Fast inject context.
<parsley:FastInject property="context" type="{Context}"/>

Now when we want to access this context in other components , previously we are doing fast inject and we were able to get it but with the latest libraries of parsley that is 3.0 version , the same lines of code giving us context as null.

please suggest if we are doing something wrong while configuring context.

Also the list of libraries that we are using right now are :


And previously we were using below mentioned library files :

Very likely a timing issue (meaning it was just pure luck it worked before your migration). I suspect you try to access the Context during events like creationComplete, which is never guaranteed to work. Instead you should use the injectionComplete event on the FastInject tag, only then the injection is guaranteed to be complete, it's simply an asynchronous operation.

For a longer explanation why other events do not reliably work, see chapter 9.7.5 in the manual for version 3.0.

There are also context lookup methods, mainly in FirstChildContext and ParentContext (depending on the direction in displaylist).

If you want it in view, injectionComplete on FastInject is enough, although it might be a bit odd usage. If you have ContextBuilder in the same mxml, you can probably use complete event there (but not sure if context is fully configured by then, most probably yes). In other cases, I'd suggest using PM's and inject context there:


public var ctx:Context;
