I'm populating a DataGrid with a whole lot of data (say
300,000 rows) via an HTTPService object. The problem here is that
the user is treated to a nice, blank DataGrid while the data loads
up from the web server. The solution, as I see it, is to use a
custom IList object as the dataProvider that only loads up the
*visible* rows from the web server (i.e. if the first visible row
on the DataGrid is row 1000, and it is displaying 20 rows, then
only load up rows 1000 to 1020 from the web server).
Since I'm still very much a Flex and ActionScript newbie,
this seems to be a non-trivial thing to implement. To avoid
reinventing the wheel, I'm wondering if there's already a solution
to this problem within the Flex framework. Thanks in advance for
any help with this!
