Unfortunately placing the radio buttons in a data list might visually get the effect you are going for, but the radio buttons will not know they are apart of a group of radio buttons. Hence why you can have multiple selections.
Here is an outline of what to do: Remove the datalist since you will not use it. Then place 46 radio buttons (i feel your pain) on the art board. You might need to adjust the size of the artboard to handle that many. Then select all of the radio buttons and turn them into a scroll panel by using the Modify > Convert Artwork to Component > Scroll Panel. You can then adjust the scrollable region, attach the needed scroll bar. And last, remove the "Add More Content Here" text that is automatically appended to the scrolling list. You might try building a smaller scroll panel to learn how it works first before tackling the big one.
If you are going to actually collect this data, you will have use Flash Builder to add the ActionScript to transfer the vote to a server. If you are going that route, you might want to talk to your developer about dynamically creating this radio button array. It might be smarter in the long run.
Yeah, I have a couple of developers that will add in the action script. I just wasn't sure if I was on the right path of setting up the voting box. I will give your suggestion a shot. thanks for the quick response! I'll try and post up if it works or not.
I hope you get this! Well, I got the voting list set up and that's working. And we are adding in the scripts to capture the data in Flash Builder. But we've run into a problem. When we try to build the project as an AIR application it's hanging and won't finish. Now, in order to complete the project in Catalyst, I had to make a bunch of the images links. That's what is seeming to be the problem in Flash Builder. When we check the box to include the "Assets" it hangs. When we uncheck that box it runs and makes the application. Problem then is, most of the graphics are missing. What are we missing? Any fix to this? Please, please help! We need this done by Thursday and we weren't anticipating these problems.
