I think you have to set amountTextInput.text to some property of the data
object on the dataChange event.
You were right that I needed to set the amountTextInput.text to the data value, but I had to do it when the textInput got focus instead of the change event.
change="amountText = amountTextInput.text;"
updateComplete="amountText = amountTextInput.text;"
protected function amountTextInput_focusInHandler(event:FocusEvent):void
amountTextInput.text = this.data.paymentAmount;
Thanks for the help!
It wouldn't be the change event. The "dataChange" event is commonly used.
But as long as it is working for you.
