Sorry, now that I think of it, it really wasn't clear enough!
What was happening was that I could retrieve the .text
property of the TextInput and I could display it is an alertbox or
assign it to any other variable but the value wasn't showing up on
the TextInput component itself
TextInput -> .text -> "ABC"
Assigning new value to TextInput -> .text -> "DEF"
Now, for some reason, the value did not show up on TextInput,
the TextInput still said "ABC"
But if I say Alert.show (TextInput.text) or Trace
(TextInput.text) -> it returns "DEF";
But now it works, I declared the TextInput as a static
private variable, that fixed it. Believe me, it was just intuition
that made me do it. I really don't know what static does.
private static var _textInput:TextInput = new TextInput;
Now if someone can tell me how that fixed it, I'd be
