    Refresh component Data?

    alejandrorrr

      Hello Everyone,

       

      In one of the States ("HotelUserState") of my application I have a component (HotelList) within a component (HotelUser). The idea is that the user can choose which Hotel it wants to add/delete/mod users using the HotelList component, and once chosen it will send an event to HotelUser so it may change to a sub State to show a  user List.

       

      The problem is that if i navigate away once I've chosen a user and then come back to this State... i will still see the last screen shown, the component won't show data, also data is not refreshed (say if i create a new hotel...).  I would like it to start from scratch everytime, but i cannot seem to get it. I know enterState

       

      This is how in my main app the state called when selected from a menubar:

       

      <mx:State name="HotelUserState" >
                  <mx:AddChild position="lastChild">
                      <ns1:HotelUser x="53" y="72">
                      </ns1:HotelUser>
                  </mx:AddChild>
              </mx:State>

       

      Then my HotelUser component looks like this (simplified):

       

      <mx:Canvas xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"   width="710" height="502" xmlns:ns1="components.*">
          <ns1:HotelList id="hotelList" horizontalCenter="0" verticalCenter="-21">
          </ns1:HotelList>

      </mx:Canvas>

       

      In short, how can I have the HotelList component refreshed/recreated it time it is shown so it pulls recent info?I know it must be something really basic... but i cannot seem to be able to do it.

       

      Any hints are welcome! thank you!
