Flex 2 : Clearing the content of an Image Component

Just a quick tip, but if you need to clear the content of a Flex 2 Image component, just set the source to null:

Here is a simple example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns="*" layout="absolute">

	<mx:Image height="500" width="500"
		completeEffect="Fade"  horizontalCenter="0"/>

	<mx:Button label="Clear Image" horizontalCenter="0" top="508"
		click="imageLoader.source = null"/>


It is simple, but took me a while to figure out.
