This should be simple but I am struggling with it. I have a CheckBox that is being properly populated but when I edit the CheckBox by toggling it either off or on I can't get the new value passed back in to my HTTPService Parameters.
here is the param:


here is the CheckBox:

 <mx:FormItem id="factiveEdit" label="Active">

	       	    <mx:CheckBox id="active_CheckBox"

	       	    	selected="{}"  toolTip="ABC Text For The Tool Tip"/>
