DialogEvent Bug?

[ Edited ]

i'm attempting to use the DialogEvent class, which, as i assume, should return the text (label) of the clicked button from a dialog.  however, nothing is returned.



import flash.display.Sprite;
import qnx.ui.buttons.LabelButton;
import qnx.dialog.AlertDialog;
import qnx.dialog.DialogSize;
import qnx.events.DialogEvent;

[SWF(width="1024", height="600", framerate="60")]
public class DialogTest extends Sprite
public function Test()
	var button:LabelButton = new LabelButton();
	button.label = "Show Alert";
	button.x = button.y = 200;
	button.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mouseEventHandler);

private function mouseEventHandler(evt:MouseEvent):void
	var alert:AlertDialog = new AlertDialog();
	alert.title = "Alert Dialog Title";
	alert.message = "This is text for the alert dialog.";
	alert.addButton("No Problem!");
	alert.dialogSize= DialogSize.SIZE_SMALL;
	alert.addEventListener(DialogEvent.DIALOG_BUTTON_CLICKED, alertButtonHandler); 

private function alertButtonHandler(evt:DialogEvent):void



neither of the DialogEvent's properties (responseBtn, responseBtnContext, responseBtnText) are traced as the alertButtonHandler function isn't even called when one of the buttons in the alert dialog is clicked.


i realize that the documentation uses event.target.selectedIndex (though the event listener only works if it's Event.SELECT) for the dialog buttons, but what is the purpose of the DialogEvent class if it's not usable in this situation?

Re: DialogEvent Bug?



yeah we preivously chocked this up as a bug but juat as you mentioned a user found that Event.SELECT can get the job done. Hopefully they can get this fixed in the next release. Here's the link to the previous page:
