In Flex I have set the labelField to @name, run the application and the drop down list appears as expected. However I now need to specify the custom value field as @id. Flex says valueField does not exist when I try to add it to the DropDownList control. Even if I set "id" to "value" in the XML and try again, it still doesn't work. I'm using trace to show what the value when we select a user from the list, which returns a blank result for each item selected.
Any idea how I can bind the value field "id" to the drop down? Thanks in advance.
