View Full Version : Components lose value over frames

05-12-2004, 06:16 AM
I have several components setup on frame one, and on frame two I have another component. All of these components, on both frames 1 and 2, are within the same movieclip. I want to be able to fill out the components on frame 1 and on frame 2 (and be able to go back and forth as necessary) and then when the users are pleased, click submit. Now, however, when I fill out the components (radio buttons and checkboxes) and I change frames, then go back, they are reset to the default null value. Is there any way to make them retain their values once set instead of resetting themselves?

don't think that can be done ... (mx2004) components always init() onLoad.

You might try adding to a content-object on killFocus of each component in your form and then use that object to init() them with the values therein on return ... [ seems no fun ... ]

Or toggle the appropriate components _visible true/false on the appropriate frame [ or is it that they have overlapping names on different frames ... then you're always in trouble with this kind of interaction]

Hey sneeuwitje,

thanks for getting back to me. I have managed to get what I was wanting to work to work. basically a lot of work with using if (this is selected) {show this movieclip with the components in them}

The problem now though is that whenever I publish the movie none of the component labels display. The actual radio buttons and check boxes show up, but none of their labels do. Why? I am loading this swf into another swf if this might make a difference.
