returning data which can access AS function


Level 1
I migrating from an HTML/Flash app previously built to an all
FLEX app. The previous app ran a db query through AJAX to an ASP
script and returned the results (basically a list of names) as a
series of forms (each name was essentially it's own form), which,
when clicked on, fired some javascript to do some other actions. A
single result looked like this:

<form style="margin: 0;" target="_blank" id="frm117"
method="POST"><input type="hidden" name="CustomerID"
value="117" /><input type="hidden" name="WispID" value="
10001 " /><a href="javascript:void(0);"
onclick="link(frm117)"><font color="#FF0000">Monty

The javascript function "link()" basically just submitted the
form to the cgi script.

I have the FLEX app calling the same ASP script and
returning the same results to a TextArea, but what I want is
instead of the results being a form and firing the javascript, I
want it to be a flex text field and have them fire some AS Function
which will perform the same action as my "old" app. I guess the
question is, can I build FLEX controls on the fly?

private function addTextArea():void


var textArea:TextArea = new TextArea();


textArea.text = "TESTING";

textArea.x = 10;

textArea.y = 10;


Should work, not tested
