I am using HTTPService to get data 25 records at a time and
then putting the data into an arraycollection. My problem is that I
want the arraycollection to retain the previous data but everytime
I get the next 25 records the arraycollection looses any previous
It looks like you're simply assigning the new array to the
dataProvider of your grid?
When you get your new array, you should be adding these items
to the existing array. You can iterate over the items of the new
array and "push" them onto the previous array. You could also use
the "join" method (if AS3 arrays have a join method).
But don't use the low level array methods lke "push()".
instead, use the ArrayCollection Methods like addItem(). The
low-level methods do not emit the events that will cause your
controls to update, but the ArrayCollection methods will.
