in your modelLocator create some refs to your combo boxes
i.e. after you create you combo box
var cb1:comboBox = new cb();
__modelLocator.cb = cb1;
<mx:cb id='cb1'/ creationComplete='initCb1()'>
__modelLocator = cb1;
I thought this is not a recommended way because now we are tightly
coupling View to Model.
I don't think modelLocator is model in cairngorm, in most case, its like a share pool, and sometime a connector between view and command
Thanks for the reply. I was reading about ViewHelper & ViewLocator
which they say are deprecated. Did you see/code the way you suggested?
For some reason this looks tight coupling between view and model. But
my knowledge on Flex and Cairngorm is just few weeks old.
