    populating menubar from service (returning an arraycollection)




      i am trying to populate a menubar component from a database, being called by a service.

      i can get as far as populating the menubar items - but they all print as '[object VOMenu]'.


      How do i go about making the menubar control display the title/label instead of that above? i also need these to link to pages, or somewhere (defined in the database).


      for info, here is the code:

                <mx:MenuBar dataProvider="{getMenuResult.lastResult}" id="menuBar" creationComplete="menuBar_creationCompleteHandler(event)"/>


      protected function menuBar_creationCompleteHandler(event:FlexEvent):void
                          getMenuResult.token = menu.getMenu();



      im sure its something simple and easy, but i cant figure it out and a few google searches doesnt seem to shed any light on using dynamic arraycollections from services (all examples hardcode define them within actionscript code, it seems)
