It should work, can you post the code.
Whenever I create a flex app that has several states, I've gotten into
the habit of simply copying my base state and renaming it something
to the effect of "start", so rather than trying to clear your state try this method.
Slightly superfluous and even a tad bit inane, but it works and gives you an
extra state buffer between impromptu edits and your base state .
So copy your base state
and rather than:
currentState = "";
try currentState = "start";
on for size.
I was terribly wrong at one point. I just caught it and corrected it. It is working fine. Thanks for your help.
