Writing to rootcontainer custom property from custom method

What I want to know is if I’m using the self.xxx on a custom method on the root container is that referring to the root container properties/components. If you happen to use a custom method to call other custom methods and still referring to self.xxx is that the same or do I need to pass the event through everything so the reference to the root container is maintained.

self is a true reference to the actual component. If you have a reference to self, you don’t need to pass any additional reference around.
