Flex 3 Combobox error #1502

author Posted by: Tim on date Sep 4th, 2008 | filed Filed under: flash, flex

We where dealing with finding the bug in the following error:

´╗┐Error: Error #1502: A script has executed for longer than the default timeout period of 15 seconds. at mx.core::UIComponent/get owner() at mx.core::UIComponent/owns()[E:\dev\3.0.x\frameworks\projects\framework\src\mx\core\UIComponent.as:8811] at mx.managers::PopUpManagerImpl$/nonmodalMouseDownOutsideHandler()[E:\dev\3.0.x\frameworks\projects\framework\src\mx\managers\PopUpManagerImpl.as:820] at PopUpData/mouseDownOutsideHandler()[E:\dev\3.0.x\frameworks\projects\framework\src\mx\managers\PopUpManagerImpl.as:980]

It turns out that it has to do with a certain id in one of our elements which had the id "owner" apparently this is used internally in flex as well. Simple to fix but pretty hard to find
