            Use a labelFunction


                           import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;
                           private var medalsAC:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection( [
                                { Country: "USA a very long country name", Gold: 35, Silver:39, Bronze: 29 },
                                { Country: "China", Gold: 32, Silver:17, Bronze: 14 },
                                { Country: "Russia", Gold: 27, Silver:27, Bronze: 38 } ]);
                           private function myLabelFunction(obj:Object):String{
                                return obj.Country + " " + obj.Gold;
                 <mx:ComboBox dataProvider="{medalsAC}" labelFunction="myLabelFunction" />

              Hey max soft, I get what you mean and i need something similar - a datafield which will pass the if of the label, so that I can update a database. How did you solve this?


              Any help would be much apprecited.
