    Data binding in pure AS3

    In MXML Flex, you can use {} to bind data. In AS3, how do you bind data?

    For example, I have a text input box and when I click the Submit button, it writes the text of the the input box into a child node in an XML file.

    I believe binding like that is a flex feature, not an AS3 feature. It generates AS3 code in the background. The AS3 would look something like this:
    submitButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, doSubmit);
    private function doSubmit(e:MouseEvent):void{
      var text:String = textbox.text;
      someXML += XML("<someNode>"+text+"</someNode>");
