Popup Dialogs as Modules

Recently, it was pointed out that there were bugs in the PopUpDialogAsModule example. The dialog would not center and was not draggable. The reason was that the thing being popped up was a Module that parented a TitleWindow and not the TitleWindow tiself. After thinking about that for a bit, I decided to create a subclass of TitleWindow that can be a Module’s top level MXML tag. The source is available at this link:

Of course, the usual caveats apply. I could have certainly missed something again.
In theory, any component can be made into a module’s top-level tag by adding the [frame] metadata. Hope this helps. I’ve been seeing this issue a lot recently. Also, sorry for the errors in the older example.
