    HTTPService and string value.

    Maurício_Pacheco Level 1
      We are having an unexpected issue in our application. One of the tags returned by a HTTPService is:

      <lot_code>7E00024</lot_code>

      And we bind this to a data grid column using:

      <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Lot Number" dataField="lot_code"/>

      But the value displayed is:

      7e+24

      So Flex is automatically converting it to a number and showing in exponential format. How do we define the XML so we force a value to be "string" or "text"?

      Thanks in advance.
