Issue while working with Tabs in Flex screens

I have a flex screen, which displays information is 2 separate tabs, mostly identical, with some other differences. Now there is a message I am trying to display on top of the screen, reading from property file..something like below.

Your are welcome...you are visitor number {0}..xxxx

Now the above parameter 0 value is different in each tab let's say. I am configuring it's value using a variable _displayValue in the action script file associated with this mxml file. Initially when the screen is first loaded, the value, initialized in the action script file bind display to context is 1. Now when I click the other tab, on mouse down I am calling a click handler in action script file, say methodA. In this methodA, I am setting the _displayValue to 3. When I used Alert.show, it shows 3, but on the screen, the value is still 1. I am breaking my head since yesterday on this. Please help
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
