    Day 1 Exercise 6 - Can't bind data, Solution file not working

    userben

      I'm using Flash Builder 4 with the Flex 4 sdk on Mac OSX 10.6

       

      I'm doing the 6th exercise on Day 1 from the Adobe Flex in a week series, and I can't get the data binding to work.

      Even the solution file doesn't work. I've double checked the instructions, and everything looks right except for design view.

       

      This is the Design view of the solution file:

      notice that the binding didn't work, instead of replacing {fullName} with the values it just wrote {fullName}

       

      here's where the components are instantiated and values are passed to the properties:

      and here's where the actionscript should create bindable properties:

      and here are the variables in the mxml of the solution file:

      Everything looks right to me. What am I doing wrong?

       

      Thanks
