When I am executing this code in notebook, there is no error but when I am deploying it in CDF, this error is coming.

$RecursionLimit::reclim: Recursion depth of 256 exceeded. >>

The code is

With[{y1 = {1, 2, 2, 1, 7}, y2 = {0, 3.27, 4.188, 7.331, 4.694}}, 
   { Spacer[70], 
     Text[Style["iPhone and iPad quarterly sales- units, million", Bold, 18]], 
        Text[Style["Click on/off:", Bold, 14]], 
        q1 = True; q2 = True;
             Button["     ", q1 = ! q1, Background -> Blue, Appearance->"Frameless"],
             "iPhone", {Right}
             Button["     ",q2 =!q2,Background -> Orange, Appearance -> "Frameless"], 
            "iPad", {Right}
           {Dynamic@ BarChart[
                       Table[{If[q1, y1[[i]], 0], If[q2, y2[[i]], 0]},{i, 1, 5,  1}], 
                       BarSpacing -> 0.8, ChartStyle -> {Blue, Orange}, 
                       ImageSize -> {600, 280}, 
                       GridLines -> {None, Automatic}

I have tried using

$RecursionLimit = Infinity  

But it has not worked. Please help.

There was one missing comma in your code. I've corrected that. Does that make a difference? – Sjoerd C. de Vries Jun 13 '12 at 19:52
@SjoerdC.deVries: Now buttons are not working in cdf. But there is no error coming. – Jennifer Jun 13 '12 at 20:16

I got it to work in my browser by replacing the first line by

DynamicModule[{y1 = {1, 2, 2, 1, 7}, y2 = {0, 3.27, 4.188, 7.331, 4.694}, q1, q2}

It has probably to do with this statement in the documentation:

All interactive content must be generated with the Manipulate command

(and DynamicModule with all necessary variables localized is a good Manipulateproxy).

share|improve this answer is working. But can you tell me why it was not working earlier when I was using "With"? – Jennifer Jun 13 '12 at 20:55
You can try the CDF here – Sjoerd C. de Vries Jun 13 '12 at 20:59
@Jennifer explanation below the line of code – Sjoerd C. de Vries Jun 13 '12 at 21:00
