How do you have a license for a server, but not have Flex installed on it? Could I do this with one of my web hosting providers then? Check with Adobe, but in November Macromedia Sales told me as long as we had a legal Flex 1.5 license installed in one location, they would allow us to take the

Been racking my brains over this for a while now, checked the archives, help docs etc. I have a ComboBox, and would just like to capture the default item, even if the user does not select anything in the Combo box. That way, something is always chosen no matter what the user does. Currently, my
