I attach comboboxes using a loop. I name the comboboxes: "combo"+x. I then add changeHandlers to each of the comboboxes. I need to determine which combobox triggered the call to the changeHandler.

Any ideas how I can achieve that?

What does your code look like. I'm guessing you can use the trace feature to gather the information you need.

Do you use Macromedia UI Combobox component or your own?

In Macromedia UI Combobox simply in the handler function specify the parameter name.

it will refer to the the object which invoked an event



example:

function Clicked(par) {
Trace(par)
}

Result

_level0.combo1

movieclip is on the top level and its name: combo1

Change Handler parametr sets to "Chicked"
