States & TextInputs

Got a strange (as I see it) problem. I've got a few different states, with some TextInputs in each.

When I try to call a function to grab the text in each TextInput, I'm only getting the values for one state. When I call the function a second time, I get the values from the 1st & 2nd states, and again if I click the button for the third time, I get all values and the function can complete.

Anybody seen this before or understand why!?

     updateStudentsResult.token = studentsService.updateStudents(studentRecord);

     studentsService.commit();

     lblStatus.text = firstnameInput.text + " " + lastnameInput.text + " successfully updated";

     studentRecord = null;

     

     this.currentState = "search";

}

Sorry it's rather long! Let me know if you'd like a trimmed down version.

I don't know about this specific very strange behavior, but I've had issues with states and accessing form fields.  In some cases I ended up just adding itemCreationPolicy='immediate' next to my includeIns.
