  Can someone help me out with this example:

Suppose I want to write this code in Flex


<mx:Button id="b1" includeInLayout="{b1.visible}">

No what I want to do INSTEAD is instead of "b1" i want to refer to the component inline, like the "this" keyword. So my new (compact) code would be


<mx:Button includeInLayout="{this.visible}">

Ideally "this" should have referred to button but by design it refers to the mx:application. Is there another keyword like "self" or something to provide a shortcut to creating the id and then using it?

Just curious.

Thanks in advance for any help.
