Can you use two way data binding with view states conditionals?

Apr 22, 2013 10:17 AM

I'd like to use one component and have what data is shown and where the data is saved vary based on the currentState of the Application/Skin/etc.  It seems to work fine for displaying different data but when I introduce two way binding the set from the ui component back to the variable is never called.  I have a minimum case example showing what I'm trying to get working below.


Thanks for any insight.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<s:Application xmlns:fx=""



          <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->

          <fx:String id="myVar1">1</fx:String>

          <fx:String id="myVar2">2</fx:String>




      <s:State name="state1"/>

      <s:State name="state2"/>






            <s:Button label="State 1" click="{currentState='state1'}"/>

            <s:Button label="State 2" click="{currentState='state2'}"/>




      <!-- Works As Expected but lots of duplicate code -->

      <s:FormItem label="MyVar1" includeIn="state1">

         <s:TextInput text="@{myVar1}"/>


      <s:FormItem label="MyVar2" includeIn="state2">

         <s:TextInput text="@{myVar2}"/>




      <!-- Display updates as expected, Set to myVar1 or MyVar2 is never called -->

      <s:FormItem label="State Based">
