I have a scenario in which an item of user entered data may
contain numeric and alpha characters. I am displaying this data in
a flex list control. When the data contains something like 123E456
flex is implicitly converting this to scientific notation and
displaying the value as "infinity". I am using http post to
retrieve the data. I have verified the value is correct in the xml
returned, and I have tried wrapping the value in a CDATA tag. The
value still gets translated as a number.
Anyone know how to force flex to display as a string?
