How can I change the view state in flex 3 within a case statement?

Non-working Example:

private function mssqlResult(event:ResultEvent):void
{
switch(event.token.param)
{
case "StartLogin":
RecordsReturned = event.result.results.record.CNT;
if(RecordsReturned==0)
{
Alert.show('You have entered an incorrect login', 'Error'";
}
else
{
currentState = loggedIn;
}
}
}

Try the attached.
private function mssqlResult(event:ResultEvent):void
{
  switch(event.token.param)
  {
    case "StartLogin":
      RecordsReturned = event.result.results.record.CNT;
      if(RecordsReturned==0)
      {
        Alert.show('You have entered an incorrect login', 'Error'";
      }
      else

Sorry, I didn't notice the Alert.show typo.  Please try this instead:
private function mssqlResult(event:ResultEvent):void
{
  switch(event.token.param)
  {
    case "StartLogin":
      RecordsReturned = event.result.results.record.CNT;
      if(RecordsReturned==0)
      {
        Alert.show('You have entered an incorrect login', 'Error');
      }
      else
      {
        currentState = 'loggedIn';
      }
  }
}

what is not working?
have you check your values of RecordsReturned and event.token.param? is your param a string?

also, a case statement needs a break;

Hi deross,

I noticed you have no break; in your code. Without it actionscript will not be able to tell the beginning nor end of a case, and the program will run through all the code. So an error is to be expected.

Hope this helps, regards.
