I have a variable in my module that i need to change the value of from a component.

The variable in the madule looks like this:
[Bindable]
public var vaSec:Boolean = false;

How is this done?
public function txtSecurity_changeHandler(event:TextOperationEvent):void
			{
				if (securityText.text == txtSecurity.text)
				{
					parentApplication.vaSec = true;
				}
				
			}

if its not working like the way you did it, you can cast the parentApplication
for example, if the name of your application is myApp
you will do like this:
public function txtSecurity_changeHandler(event:TextOperationEvent):void
			{
				if (securityText.text == txtSecurity.text)
				{
					myApp(parentApplication).vaSec = true;
				}
				
			}

Sorry, I don't fully understand what you are trying to do. Do you think you could elaborate a bit more?

Could you give a basic overview of the classes you are using, as well as the relationship of each class, including how the display objects are laid out (child of child etc)


Are you getting any errors from your current code, or is it just not working?

I use the "myApp(parentApplication)". This only gave me access to my main application. I could see variables inside the Module, however i could not change the value of them. I ended up adding the Component code into the Module.
