    Extracting Data Using HTTPService Without mx:Columns

    alice_data Level 1
      Hi, Guys:

      Has anyone tried accessing the database through HTTPService, and not use mx:Columns?
      One of my columns in my database has really long text blobs, so I don't really want the column name along with the content of what is in the content to be in place along with the other columns when I access the database through HTTPService.

      I tried using something like mx:TextArea and put it in mx:DataGrid, since it is still part of the database, but the screen displayed a syntactical error message I have also tried putting in the dataProvider in mx:TextArea so that it could link back to the database I extracted from the HTTPService, which was also disallowed. Is it possible if I just have the text blob extracted separately and have it change according to what the users select from the entries in the DataGrid I specified?

      This is what I have now:

      <mx:VBox width="450">
      <mx:FormItem label="friend">
      <mx:DataGrid id="friend_find"
      dataProvider="{rssRequest3.lastResult.friends.friend}">
      <mx:columns>
      <mx:DataGridColumn dataField="id" width="25" headerText="ID"/>
      <mx:DataGridColumn dataField="name" width="108" headerText="name"/>
      </mx:columns>
      <mx:TextArea id="friend_desc" width="300" height="100" text="What Should I put here?"/>
      </mx:DataGrid>
      </mx:FormItem>
      </mx:VBox>

      Can anyone tell me what I might have done wrong here?
      Thanks in advance.
