    Tilelist data loading

      I am creating a jukebox application that has the ability to play both audio and video files. In my app I have a tile list (myTileList) that loads music album data (artist name, album name & album picture) from a database via an array collection called albumData. The data appears in the tilelist exactly as I want it but my problem is I need to load all my data at once as apposed to only loading it as I scroll up or down in my tilelist?

      Can anyone please help me out with this?

          Not enough information. Exactly what do you mean by "load"?

            When you say "load all my data at once", I take it to mean that you want to instantiate all the objects in albumData before they are displayed – maybe you expect your users to be doing a lot of scrolling up and down?

            The TileList control instantiates objects as they are displayed – after they are out of sight, they are replaced by newer ones.

            Maybe you should consider using a container (a VBox, a Tile layout container, whatever) with a Repeater. In this case, all the objects of albumData will be created before anything is diplayed.
