I could really use a nudge in the right direction. From what
I gather, I can successfully pull data into my flex form from a
database using ColdFusion CFC's. I can also save data to the DB via
a "Save" button on the screen.
What I cant figure out is a good way to update the record as
the user enters data. If I use the Change events it calls the
webservice each time a character changes.
So how do I do you handle saving data without update buttons
so it works like a desktop application?
Your help is much appreciated. I have been reading the
documentation and searching google, but I think I am missing
something core and basic.
what would you define as your unit of change that should save
the data? Of course, change event won't cut it. Is it that you want
to save when any field is updated for this row or only when you
move from one record to another?
What kind of component(s) are using for this data?
I think, for text fields generally you should be able to get
the behavior you're looking for by listening for valueComitt event.
You might also want to look into updateComplete event.
