hi guys

I am new to flex so not sure how to solve this

I have 2 mxml files, both the mxml files have a peice of code which is repeated.

I want to avoid that. My 2 mxml are

1.developer.mxml

<mx:Script>
	<![CDATA[
		 
		[Bindable]
		private var user:Object;
		private function userHandler(event:ResultEvent):void 
		{
			user = event.result;
			
		}
	]]>
</mx:Script>

<mx:RemoteObject id="secHelper" destination="secHelper" >
<mx:method name="getAuthCredentials" result="userHandler(event)"/>
</mx:RemoteObject>

<mx:HBox width="100%" visible="{user.authority.contans(DEVELOPER)}" >	//using the user object here to check the role 	
		<mx:Button label="New Project Developer"/>		//button differs based on role  
	</mx:HBox>

Open in new window

now i have another mxml
2.manager.mxml which contains the same code just to check the role of manager.

<mx:Script>
	<![CDATA[
		 
		[Bindable]
		private var user:Object;
		private function userHandler(event:ResultEvent):void 
		{
			user = event.result;
			
		}
	]]>
</mx:Script>

<mx:RemoteObject id="secHelper" destination="secHelper" >
<mx:method name="getAuthCredentials" result="userHandler(event)"/>
</mx:RemoteObject>

<mx:HBox width="100%" visible="{user.authority.contans(MANAGER)}" >	//using the user object here to check the role 	
		<mx:Button label="New Project Manager"/>		//button differs based on role 
	</mx:HBox>

Open in new window

So clearly there is redundancy. I am repeating the <mx:RemoteObject>  and function userHandler(event:ResultEvent) in two places to get the user object. My goal is to have the code only once and reuse it.

Is that possible?

thanks

Yes This is Possible.
Create a Service mxml and place the Remote Object tag there as you have done here. Then place the handlers and dispatch custom events with the results.

Now in your developer and manager mxml add the service mxml like any other component and execute it by calling its public APIs that you need to declare in the Service mxml.

Hope this makes sense.

Service.mxml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Canvas xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
		   width="400" height="300">
	<mx:Metadata>
		[Event(name="userData", type="flash.events.Event")]
	</mx:Metadata> 
	<mx:Script>
		<![CDATA[
			import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
			import mx.rpc.events.FaultEvent;
			import flash.events.Event;
			
			
			[Bindable]
			public var user:Object;
			private function userHandler(event:ResultEvent):void 
			{
				user = event.result;
				
				var userEvent:Event = new Event( "userData" );
				dispatchEvent(userEvent);
				
			}
		]]>
	</mx:Script>
	<mx:RemoteObject id="secHelper" destination="secHelper" >
		<mx:method name="getAuthCredentials" result="userHandler(event)"/>
	</mx:RemoteObject>

</mx:Canvas>

Open in new window


Now in the developer and manager mxml add this:
<local:Service id="service" userData="onUserData(event)"/>

<mx:Script>
		<![CDATA[
			import flash.events.Event;
			
			private function onUserData(event:Event):void 
			{
				trace(service.user);
				
			}
		]]>
	</mx:Script>

Open in new window
