    equivelant of this.text

    Seglespaan Level 1

      Hi,

       

       

      I have a textInput and on change I want to call a function, when I do so I want to pass the contents of itself and its id to the function.

       

      change="functionName(id, data )"

      change="functionName(id, text)"

      change="functionName(id, this.text)"

       

      all don't work.

       

      I can do it by using

       

      change="functionName(id, textInputId.text)"

       

      but just wanted to know if there was an equivelant to this.text in flex!

       

      Cheers

          hi ,

             you can accomplish by this code

           

           

                            public function onChange(e:Event):void{
                           trace(e.target.name)////gives you id of textInput='me'
                           
                       }
                    ]]>
               </mx:Script>
               <mx:TextInput change="onChange(event)" id="me"/>
