Can you explain me with a code based example, where the textinput inside a repeater should be required.
How to set  required== true  
How to run any project with ease

Manage projects of all sizes how you want. Great for personal to-do lists, project milestones, team priorities and launch plans.
- Combine task lists, docs, spreadsheets, and chat in one
- View and edit from mobile/offline

Try this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- -->
<mx:Application xmlns:mx=""
				backgroundColor="white" viewSourceURL="srcview/index.html">
			import mx.controls.Alert;
			import mx.controls.CheckBox;
			private function onClickHandler(event:Event):void 
				var idx:int;
				var len:int = arr.length;
				for (idx=0; idx<len; idx++) {
					if (textInput[idx].text == "" ) {
						status.text = "required field.";
						stage.focus = textInput[idx];
				status.text = "";"submit data");
	<mx:Array id="arr">
		<mx:Object label="Red" data="red" />
		<mx:Object label="Orange" data="haloOrange" />
		<mx:Object label="Yellow" data="yellow" />
		<mx:Object label="Green" data="haloGreen" />
		<mx:Object label="Blue" data="haloBlue" />

	<mx:Panel id="panel" width="50%" paddingLeft="10" verticalGap="10">
		<mx:Repeater id="checkBoxRepeater" dataProvider="{arr}">
			<mx:TextInput id="textInput" />
		<mx:ControlBar horizontalAlign="right">
			<mx:Label id="status" />
			<mx:Button id="button"
					   label="Click me"
					   click="onClickHandler(event);" />
