    How to use string Variables for data provider names

    bueche
      Really what I need to be able to do is insert the variable name in this:

      dataProvider="{chartXML2.lastResult.month.day}"

      I need to replace the "month" with a string variable name (i.e public var monthName = "January";)

      I also need to do the same for the categoryfield as it will not let me do categoryfield=$String.

      In PHP this is incredibly easy to do. You just say blah=$string . In fact, in PHP you can embed variable names everywhere. Its very powerful. For instance, in php, for the dataprovider issue above, i'd just do

      dataProvider="{chartXML2.lastResult.$StringName.day}"

      and it'd work just fine. Whats the syntax for doing this in Flex?
