    updated XML changes not showing between states

      Hi Gurus,

      I am fairly new to AS3/Flex and would like your help with an issue I am having. I am implementing a Flex 2 project that uses two custom components in different states (i.e. State 1 uses component A. State 2 uses component B). In these two components, they are referencing the same XML object that is specified in a seperate file (i.e. Global.as) that is included in the main application file.

      Here's my problem. If I switch between the two states making changes to the XML object, these changes are not shown in the states unless I force a new databind() by setting the dataprovider to the updated XML object. I could just do this everytime the user switches the state, however, I don't think this is an efficient way to solve the problem.

      I was wondering if you guys could help me find a better way to solve this problem. Could we set an event that triggers the reseting of the XML databind ONLY when the XML object is changed?

      Thanks.
