    Preselect items in a list

      Like the datefield post below I have an update form that is meant to update an existing list of people chosen for the project. In HTML I would use a condition saying if the person = the database listing then selected="selected", but I cannot find out how to do this in Flex / AS.

      Basically I have a list that allows mutliple selections and I want them already highlighted if they were chosen initially. Anywhere to find out how to do this?

          Just build an Array containing the indexes you want to select and set list.selectedIndices to that (where list is the id of your List control):

          var obj:Array = [0, 5];
          list.selectedIndices = obj;

          This will select the 0th and 6th items of your List (if allowMultipleSelection is true)
