    Cannot set date on datefield object

    the_new_mr Level 1

      Hello everyone,


      I'm new here but expect to be a regular vistor as I've just started working with Flex 3.  All very interesting stuff


      I'm trying to set the date of a datefield object programmatically.


      According to the actionscript 3.0 api, it should be possible (according to the following link):

      http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/mx/controls/DateField.h tml#selectedDate



      I tried doing it using the following code:


      var fromDateDateObject:Date = DateField.stringToDate(fromDate, "DD/MM/YYYY");
      var toDateDateObject:Date = DateField.stringToDate(toDate, "DD/MM/YYYY");
      datFrom.selectedDate( fromDateDateObject );
      datTo.selectedDate( toDateDateObject );


      However, on the last two lines of code, I get the following error:

      Attempted access of inaccessible method selectedDate through a reference with static type mx.controls:DateField



      What am I doing wrong?
