Returning results from remoteobject class to parent

I have a Flex application using ColdFusion to retrieve data from MS SQL. I'm trying to create a class where I can send in a numeric argument and it returns a value to the document calling the class.

This is my class

package com.procost
{
import mx.controls.Alert;
    import mx.core.FlexGlobals;
    import mx.rpc.AbstractOperation;
    import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
    import mx.rpc.remoting.RemoteObject;

    public class EmailListRetrieve
    {
        public var emailListId:Number = -1;

        public function send():void{
            //Create the remote object
            var _remoteObject:RemoteObject = new RemoteObject('test');
            _remoteObject = new RemoteObject("ColdFusion");
            _remoteObject.endpoint = "http://" + FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.endPointLink + "/flex2gateway/";
            _remoteObject.source = FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.remotePath + "services.general";
            _remoteObject.showBusyCursor = true;

            //Send
            var op:AbstractOperation = _remoteObject.getOperation('getEmailList');
            op.addEventListener(ResultEvent.RESULT, result);
            op.send(this);
        }

        // Result from CFC
        private function result(event:ResultEvent){
            Alert.show(event.result.toString());
        }
    }
}

Open in new window


This is how I'm calling it from my MXML file

import com.procost.EmailListRetrieve;    

public function fncClick():void{
     var request:EmailListRetrieve = new EmailListRetrieve();
     request.emailListId=1;
     request.send();
}

Open in new window


The result function in my class is returning all the data I need from the DB. The issue is, how do I get this data back into the MXML document I called it from?

Any help would be appreciated.

After your get result in, assuming you have public variable defined to hold the returned value, got can add
get method

For example:

      public var returnedValue:String;

       // Result from CFC
        private function result(event:ResultEvent){
            Alert.show(event.result.toString());
            setReturnedValue(event.result as String);
        }

       public function setReturnedValue(str:String):void {
             returnedValue = new String (str);
       }
       public function getReturnedValue():String {
             return returnedValue;
       }
