main.mxml
<mx:script>
private function launchPopUp(e:MouseEvent,projectList:ArrayCollection):void {
var popupwindow : Window = new Window();   
PopUpManager.addPopUp(popupwindow,this,true);
PopUpManager.centerPopUp(popupwindow);
}
</mx:script>

<mx:Button id="button" label="show" click="launchPopUp(event,arrayCollection);"/>  //passing the arrayCollection

Open in new window


and this is Window.mxml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:TitleWindow xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
layout="vertical"

Window.mxml - in the scripts tag add this line:
public var projectList:ArrayCollection;

Open in new window


main.mxml - pass the collection to the popup like this:
<mx:script>
private function launchPopUp(e:MouseEvent,projectList:ArrayCollection):void {
var popupwindow : Window = new Window();   
popupwindow.projectList = projectList;
PopUpManager.addPopUp(popupwindow,this,true);
PopUpManager.centerPopUp(popupwindow);
}
</mx:script>

<mx:Button id="button" label="show" click="launchPopUp(event,arrayCollection);"/>  //passing the arrayCollection

Open in new window

hi thanks very much.

Is there anyway i can display the popup on the top-right section of screen.
Right now i have PopUpManager.centerPopUp(popupwindow);  
i removed that but how do i put it on the top-right just above the button?

thanks

set the x and y of popupwindow based on its size and stage size.
