Extending remoteobject


Level 1
I'd like to have a custom remoteobject for specific error
handling and logging. However, if I try to extend remoteobject:

public dynamic class CustomRemoteObject extends RemoteObject




It is completely unusable in an mxml file. If I try to
declare any <mx:methods> inside of it, I get a "could not
resolve <mx:method> to a component implemenation":


<mx:method ...> <!-- compiler error>


I know that <mx:method> is special-cased by the
compiler because it doesn't have a component implementation. Is
there a way to use custom remote objects in mxml with the mx:method
tag? If not, is there a way to use custom remote objects in mxml
and have callbacks at the method-level? Is remoteobject not
supposed to be extended this way?

mx.rpc.remoting.mxml.RemoteObject or mx.rpc.remoting.RemoteObject

Try extending the mx.rpc.remoting.mxml.RemoteObject.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, I extend mx.rpc.remoting.mxml.remoteObject. I logged a
bug at
For some reason it was resolved as not a bug, which (in my humble
opinion) is a mistake. It is a huge pain for us, and most likely
for people using a significant number of remote objects in their
