Exactly what I was after. Can you tell me is it possible to dynamically select an item in a tile list?
So say I have an arraycollection with three objects in it. This AC is the data provider for a tile list. If I then have three buttons 1,2 & 3.
If I hit button 2 I want to be able to highlight that item in the list as if I've clicked that item on the list
