    Implicit Character Conversion

    ArchwayBob
      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?

      Thanks
