Try This:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" 
				backgroundColor="gray" height="100%" 
				verticalScrollPolicy="auto" horizontalScrollPolicy="auto"
				
				>

    <mx:Script>
        <![CDATA[
            private function onClick( event:MouseEvent ):void
			{
				var o:* = (event.currentTarget);
				trace( o.parent.x );
			}
              
        ]]>
   </mx:Script>        
	<mx:HDividedBox width="100%" height="100%">
		<mx:Panel width="300" height="100%" id="panel1"/>
		<mx:Panel width="100%" height="100%" id="panel2">
