          Sure, just use data binding to create it for you:

          <mx:Repeater id="repeater"...
          <mx:TextInput id="{'MyTextControl' + repeater.currentIndex}" ...

          This will create controls with ids of MyTextControl0, MyTextControl1, etc.

            I tried that but its giving error "is not a valid identifier"

            i am sending my code

            <mx:Application xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="vertical" creationComplete="GetProjectName.send()">
            <mx:HTTPService id="GetProjectName" url=" http://localhost:1436/Repeater/Default.aspx" useProxy="false" />
            <mx:TabNavigator id="NewTab" width="100%" height="100%" creationPolicy="all" >
            <mx:Repeater id="MyRepeater" dataProvider="{GetProjectName.lastResult.NewDataSet.Table}">
            <!--mx:CheckBox label="ABCD" /-->
            <mx:Canvas label="{MyRepeater.currentItem.ProjectName}" height="477">
            <mx:DataGrid width="90%" height="353">
            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="A" width="100"/>
            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="B" width="100"/>
            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="C" width="100"/>
            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="D" width="100"/>
            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="E" width="100"/>
            <mx:TextInput id="{'MyText' + MyRepeater.currentIndex}" x="10" y="413"/>

              Hi rajeeva_nagaraj,

              I am also facing the same issue with the id attribute with dynamic binding. How did you resolve the issue?

                I found the solution...

                give any text as id

                <mx:TextInput id="MyText" x="10" y="413"/>

                and can iterate through that id.

                public function showInput():void {
                for (var i:int = 0; i < MyText.length; i++)

                it shows all the TextInput input values.

                  Giri has the correct solution (though use brackets and not braces).

                  You cannot create ids dynamically in a repeater as in the first suggestion.
