Level 3
I was trying to add the ability for a user to add a City name
to their profile in the CustomRoster example. I tried to set the
following cSession.userManager.setCustomUserField but I am sure I
called it wrong. I was setting the city name from a text input box

Then I was trying to display it in the mx:list by adding to
the line - return uDesc.displayName+", "+role+",

What is the correct procedure to set and then call?

call by using return uDesc.displayName+", "+role+",
"+uDesc.customFields['testfield']; Could you please help with the
correct syntax.

Sorry for my ignorance.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, you've stumbled into an area of code that
isn't supported yet. This is our bad - we should have removed this
before this release, since it was pretty buggy, and we ran out of
time to get it done properly for public beta. For a little
guidance, if it's marked @private, it's probably not ready for
prime-time :). Sorry for the confusion - We'll definitely get this
fixed for the next beta drop.

So, back to the problem at hand, what I'd suggest for now is
to create a separate shared model, which is indexed by userID, and
is set to userDependentItems=true, meaning that details are
retracted as users leave the room. I'll post an example in a
