6.1. What Are They?

Cairngorm events are the mechanism through which views communicate to the control layer. Cairngorm events are not all that different from regular Flex events; in fact, both are based on the flash.events.Event class.

The major difference between them is that Cairngorm events are self-dispatching and are designed to work with the FrontController class through another class called the CairngormEventDispatcher.

Cairngorm events are the mechanism through which your application triggers any logic implemented in the Cairngorm framework.
