    question about dataproviders and repeaters

    mattmuller

      Hi, just want to see if anyone knows anything about this.

       

      I have an ArrayCollection which stores a discussion thread.

       

      I am using this ArrayCollection as a datasource for a repeater.

       

      The repeater contains a custom component which is a HBox with a UITextField.

       

      Inside this component I am doing a bunch of stuff on creationComplete();

       

      It seems everytime I add a new item to the ArrayCollection it fires creationComplete in every single custom component.

       

      I assume this means it is recreating every component for every item in the ArrayCollection each time there is a change to the Array.

       

      Is there a better approach?

       

      Is there a better way to handle this?

       

      How does this impact memory?

       

      Any ideas welcome.

       

      thanks,
