Could you help me with the code for the Window Component in Flash MX2004? I've read the Macromedia Component Manual (pgs 879-889), and gotten a new window component to open and place the close button on the window. I've also gotten a window to close, but I haven't been able to successfully combine both sets of code. Could you help me with the code to open, title, populate, and close a Window Component? thanks.

var initObject = new Object();
initObject.title = "window title";
initObject.closeButton = true;
initObject.contentPath = "symbolLinkage";
var popup = mx.managers.PopUpManager.createPopUp(this, mx.containers.Window, false, initObject);
var listener = new Object();
listener.click = function(evt)
popup.addEventListener("click", listener);

Thank you for your response. I'm new at this. Could you help me understand exactly where I paste the code? Is there anything else I need to do to make it work?

- open a new movie
- drag a Window instance to the stage from the component panel, then delete it (but know you have it in the library)
- create a moviecli in the library, then give it the linkage "symbolLinkage" (right click on the symbol in the library, linkage, Export for actioscript)
- paste that code in the first frame of your movie, and test it
