Combo Box - Urgent!

Posted on 2004-11-16

I thought I had this figured out but I guess I don't.  I have code for a combo box that works in one fla but won't work in any others.  All I am trying to do is get the value of a combo box and set that to a global variable.  Then just display that value in dynamic text box.  Also, I have two different sytles of combo box components, the new look and the older look.  The new look doesn't give me a place in the properties panel to set a Change Handler.  How do I set this? I have a link to the fla so that you can see what I am talking about.

If you would like to post a reply as well as send my the correct fla that would be great. (jbengert@gmail.com)

Please Help!

I've posted a revised movie here...


I've separated the code for each combo box. For the new style (since it is an MX 2004 component) I've added an eventListener. For the old style I've attached an onClipEvent handler to the combo box itself. Everything seems to work now.

Try this, but it won't be there very long.  

Just ask nice and I will repost the file for anyone that needs it in the future.  

Thanks to 'befidled' for the great work!
