"selected" attribute of Checkbox not working inside a Repeater

hi guys,


I'm trying to create some checkboxes, using Repeater and XML, but they all appear selected, no matter what I put in the XML attribute "selected".
Here's the sample code:


<mx:HBox x="72" y="70" width="200" height="200">

                         <mx:Repeater id="repeat_chk" dataProvider="{myXML}">

         <mx:CheckBox id="chks" x="136" y="93" label="{repeat_chk.currentItem.@name}" selected="{Boolean(repeat_chk.currentItem.@selected)}" />




The labels are showing ok, but checkboxes are always selected.

Anyone has run into this already?

    See the rules on Boolean() it doesn't do what you expect.  The output of repeat_chk.currentItem.@selected is an XMLList.


    I think you need something like Boolean(repeat_chk.currentItem.@selected.toString() == "true")
