The lifecycle of Lightning Component is weird for me. A sub component needs to be initialized with data of its parent component's attribute. However sometimes it works fine, sometimes does not. Are there docs for details?

  • Not sure I understand. Are you just looking for the Lightning docs?

  • @KrisGray thanks, Kris. Not just looking for Lightning docs. I have read 'developer guide'. Sometimes a sub component is needed to enhance its parent with sub's client-side controller since the limitations of built-in Expression. But I find that the initialization cycle is a little wired, not very clearly. In other words, the outline of initialization is wanted.
