    Question about timed events

    DigiMan74354
      Hello Everyone,

      I'm brand new to both Flash and Flex so please bear with me if I am asking a stupid question. I've done some Googling but I can't seem to find the answer to this issue and I hope someone will be willing to offer me some informtion.

      I have a DataGrid componant that I populate with the results of an <mx:HTTP> datasource. The problem is, I need to be able to requery that datasource on a timed basis. I know how to use the Timer object in ActionScript but I don't know how to tie this into the <mx:HTTP> query. Basically, I'm wanting to update the datagrid on a timed basis based on information retreived from the remote datasource.

      Can anyone help?

      Thanks!
      Anthony
