I'm sure this is an easy question but I'm finding it hard to get to grips with programming an need a nudge in the right direction please
I created my site for the first time in Flash Catalyst and now rightly or wrongly i have about 50 components and a main. Now most of the work is done in my components and i feel I'm nearly half way in writing the code in Flash Builder. But it would be a lot easier if i could pass data between one of the components to another, as i have one component that's displays a tile list of users and then the client selects the user of interest which then fires a state selected and then we go to the new component which displays the user full info in question. so I'm trying to pass the ID from component "component_users" to component "component_userinfo" so i can use the ID property to retrie the data with a SQL string. But every time i search on the net and try something i just always get errors of the kind that means I'm not doing it right i have tried setting up globals ie import mx.core.FlexGlobals; but my variables are in a component and not in main so that didn't work. i have tried making a function and then calling it but that didn't work component_users.function but maybe i did that wrong maybe does anyone one know what the correct procedure is or can u not call from other components?
