-- You cannot see id because you currentProject is NULL

<projectWork:summaryView label="Project Info"/>      --  The inner mxml,not able to pass id here

-- You are not passing "currentProject", how inner class should get your instance?

Here is the solution:

<projectWork:summaryView label="Project Info" currentProject="{currentProject}"/>
