Hi

Please let me know what is the need for sending EventObject to the event Handler ?

For example if we select an Item inside a Combobox an ItemEvent will be generated , and we generally pass this event
to the Event Listener .

<mx:combobox id="combo" change = "calllistener(event)"/>



Please share your ideas .

How does your event handler know anything about the event (other than its type) otherwise?

when you want to carry additional information,you will carry those data with an eventoject, usually a customized eventObject, this is a great way of decoupling your application.

You:
  • Write a custom event class
  • Write code that can trigger this event
  • Write and register an event handler for the event
