    Help displaying a 1 to 5 scale

    MXBrian
      I'm trying to display an XML file with the Likert format in Flex builder 3.0.

      Example:
      <qstyle name="PriorAssessment" newframe="false" format="lickert" datatype="int" minValue="1" maxValue="5" minLabel="None"

      The above is a rating scale between 1 and 5. Just like asking on a scale from 1 to 5 how well did you like it. I need to render/display up to 100 questions like these in Flex.

      Can someone help me with this? Can Flex even display an XML likert format?

      Thanks,
      Brian

          I Googled Likert and it seems like you should be able to do this.

          Use a Repeater to populate the "Strongly Disagree", "Somewhat Disagree", "Somewhat Agree", "Strongly Agree" from an array.

          Populate each statement about which the user should comment from the XML.

          You are left to decide how you want to implement displaying the choices and the statement. HorizontalList? HBox of Labels?
