Flex Repeater

Hello every one,
please use cairngorm.swc file

my question is.
select the number of passengers and when you click on submit button i am going to show the data like passenger DateofBirth field and age feild in the second page.

when i change the date feild to the passenger date of birth i need to populate the age feild with the age of passenger (this should be calculated according to the date selected in date feild) and that should show in years(like if age is one year and two months it should show as 1.2)

and when i click the submit button in second page i need to check whether all the feilds are entered in the repeater.

can anybody help me in this.

Thanks in advance

>> if age is one year and two months it should show as 1.2
one year and 1 month = 1.1
one year and 10 months = 1.10 also?

Since 2 months = 2/12 or 1/6 or 0.16666 year shouldn't that be 1.1666666?

Hello ZZynx,
Sorry for the late reply.i was waiting for the confirmation how the age should be displayed.
it should be disaplayed in months(i.e one year and 1 month = 13).

In second.mxml there's

    for(var i:int=0;i<modellocator.numberofPassengers;i++) {

while numberofPassengers is undefined in AppModelLocator.
