    adding property/field to an item inside array collection

    Deh Bontempos

      Hi

       

      I'm newbie. But I'm spending a huge amout of time trying to figure out something that should be simple.

       

      in short:

       

      I wanted to add a new field/property to an item inside an arraycollection(ac).

       

      I thought something like:

       

      ac.souce[i].push(object:value)

       

      would do (its inside a loop, since I have ac.length) but it didnt.

       


      ITS IMPORTANT TO SAY THAT:

       

      i think addItem, or addItemAt IS NOT THE CASE.

       

      I want to add an new item INSIDE the array that is wrapped in ac.

       

       

      in long:

       

      I have a ORDERS table that comes with a client_id (int).

       

      I need to retrieve the client's name from a CLIENTS table.

       

      Ok i have to put everything on the same datagrid. So, first i've tried to ivoke a function like this that would use the getClientsByID and return a string with its name.

       

       

       

       

      It didn't worked, maybe due to the syntax.

       

      SO, i thought i had to put all those 2 tables into 1 array collection to use this as a 'formated' data provider for the datagrid.

       

      What should I do? this is a simples example.

       

      Thanks a lot
