I'm trying to control the value of a checkbox with
information that I'm pulling from a database.
<mx:CheckBox label="Checkbox" width="100"

My question: How can I access the variables stored in the

variable from an integer to a boolean when it is imported into
Flex? I've figured out that the simple way to view the data is to
add a column to the datagrid. However, my checkbox can only be
controlled with a Boolean value, but I don't know how to convert my
variable stored in the datagrid into a boolean. I've tried hard

the imported data is a String and that the value stored in the
string needs to be converted if it is to be usable.
I found a solution to my problem, although it does so outside
Flex. My solution was to modify the variable in php using a simple
loop to convert the text value that was being generated by php into
a Boolean value. That completely solved the problem inside
