Default Where do I hook up my as3 file?


I need a quick bit of help in getting going -

I just got FlexBuilder3 - where can i hook up an as3 file to it? I mean for example I have the following mxml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
	 verticalGap="15" horizontalGap="15" >
	<mx:HBox width="100%">
		<mx:Label text="My pathetic project:"/>
		<mx:Button label="Wow"/>
that's great and all, but I want some "main()" function in a separate as3 file where I can maintain state variables, and get going with using as3 to interact with the visual elements. I figured out how to do that for flash cs3 but not flex. All the different names are beginning to give me a headache.

Anyway any info would be great,

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"


//this is so much easier to read then keeping it in a seperate file
private function onCreationComplete(): void {
  //start doing stuff

But you can also

<mx:Script source="script_file.as" />
I used to do it this way but opening two different files to look at code for the same class started to become annoying. I suggest keeping it in a Script block with your mxml, but that's just a personal preference.

Best Regards,
