Hey, Jason:
Check this out!
http://www.tyz.nl/2010/03/22/temple-open-sourced/
Then if you d/l it, go to this:
file:///Users/blahblahblah.../Downloads/templelibrary_2.9.1/doc/temple/ui/eventtunneling/EventTunneler.html

This is an example about how to nest MultiStateButtons and how EventTunneling 
is used.
View this example online at:

Yeah, baby!

PS This library looks KILLER, like a decade of serious coders' time all open

If you want to do bubbling with Signals, then read this post first:

You can do it, it's just not automatic.

 Yeah man, AS3Signals are awesome!

They look like fun and I'm looking forward to it. Just getting acquainted

and I couldn't figure how to bubble through it, so it became cumbersome. Then I 
was trying to figure out how to use them in my (now) infinitely nested

I have figured out how to do this. It requires more than just dispatching a 
custom event. It requires a getter as well. I took the wrong approach initially.
John

 Hi;

 I have this code in
 the class dispatching the custom event:

        private function progressHandler(e:LoaderEvent):void
        {
            dispatchEvent(new Event(e.target.progress));
        }


(This is from a greensock loaderEvent.) 

I have this pseudo-code from the class listening for the event:

        var re:RegExp = new RegExp();
            re = /\d\.\d*/
 //            re.exec(str)
            mySlides.addEventListener(, function() {trace(progress: )});


 What I am trying to achieve is to use the regex re to evaluate
 what I'm listening for (that which will be in the quotes ()) and then I'd 
like to use  that number in the trace function. How do I do this?
 TIA,
 John
