    Newbie: Datagrid = great, but what about textual presentations?

    rcgauer

      I am a php hack, now learning Flex. I can create datagrid presentations of my SQL data in a snap... fast and wonderful CRUD interface in an instant. Datagrid = great.

       

      But what is the proper way of presenting and formatting data in a more textual context? Imagine a list of book titles presented with brief text story abstracts, generated from the database (and available to the MXML app as a php-generated XML file, of course). Each would be shown one after another with links to more content...

       

      So what is the proper data container to use for text-intensive presentations... maybe even including images and CDATA?

       

      Hope I have asked this clearly....

      thanks
