    how do I pass an actionscript variable to an event function call in mxml?

      This has to be simple, but I'm really struggling finding an answer for this.

      A simple example: let's say I have an actionscript variable definition


      private var theString:String = "test";


      Then I have a function:


      private function showString(myString:String){




      Then I have some mxml:

      For the life of me, I can't get the click event to fire correctly...Here are the 2 variations I've tried that seem intuitive to me but neither works.


      <mx:Button click="showString(theString)" />


      <mx:Button click="showString({theString})" />


      ANy input would be appreciated.
