The attached picture will help a lot with understanding.
Need the skeleton for a 3 part search module.
Part 1 would be a list of "Searcgable Fields"
Part 2 would be a dynamically loaded Movie Clip that would contain components based on what was selected in part 1. ie if "STATUS" was selected in Part 1, part 2 would be the status_mc and have a list of all the statuses and could be multiple selected. I will build the individual part 2 movie clips myself
Part 3 is the hang up. It would be a list/data grid/whatever that would display the criteria that has been selected. It would need to update if the field already exists and added otherwise. If you click on the criteria in part 3, the part 1 list should change and part 2 will load with the criteria selected. Thus allowing editing.
Again, I just need the basic functionality to work and I will create all the part 2 MCs. Also, the picture is worth well more than 1000 words.
