            You will have to modify this a bit, for example resultFormat="array" if your data is an array, "e4x" for xml. resultHandler() code will likely change as well.

              Dear Mr.Greg Lafrance,

              Thaks a lot, this code is working fine. i tried to change this labels in to check box. that too working it created the check boxes. but i have the following difficulties:
              1) it creates check boxes. it shows the label only for first item, other i items the label shows empty.

              for adding check box i gave the following code:
              <mx:CheckBox id="chk" label="{rp.currentItem}" color="{count++ % 2?0xFF0000:0x00FF00}" height="100" width="200"/>
              i can see the checkboxes in horizontal order without labels. pls tell me how can i bring the labels for entire checkboxes.

              2) if i click on the created text boxex, i need to fetch the label of the text box or index of the text box will it possible pls tel me the possible way. for that i gave the following code, but it gives the error:

              click="trace(chk.label)"

              kindly help me to do these things. i need to fetch the index of the check box atleast.

              Thanks and regards,
