I keep getting an error with using <components:BindableComboBox> in Flex3.  Im using an example from the Flex 3 bible by David Gassner.  I even downloaded the code from the Wiley site and getting the same error.  Anyone have an idea why this is causing a problem?  The code is listed below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<mx:Application xmlns:mx="" layout="horizontal" xmlns:vo="vo.*" xmlns:components="com.adobe.components.*">

	<mx:Array id="stateData">
















	<mx:Panel id="listPanel" title="List" width="200">

		<mx:List id="stateList" dataProvider="{stateData}" labelField="capitol" width="100%" />


	<mx:Panel title="ComboBox" width="{listPanel.width}" height="{listPanel.height}">


         <components:BindableComboBox id="stateCB" 





		<mx:Label text="State: {stateCB.selectedItem.state}"/>

		<mx:Label text="Capitol: {stateCB.selectedItem.capitol}"/>

    Do you have the folders com/adobe/components and BindableComboBox.mxml or available under it?
