I have a List with a custom ItemRenderer that starts as an
empty receptacle (the Data Provider starts with empty values that
are filled in). The ItemRender is a custom Component with 5 form
fields that are a mixture of text fields, radio buttons and Combo
Boxes. I need to update the dataProvider with user-entered valued
form the List items so that I can access the data. Approaches
1. Putting event listeners on all the form fields to update
the values as the user interacts with them, but I am a little fuzzy
on how to access the dataProvider from the context of a
subcomponent within a List Item.
2. Iterate over the items in the List and extract the values
to the data Provider - more efficient, but here I am unsure how to
iterate over items in a list (they don't seem to be directly
acessible by getChildAt, for example) when the dataProvider does
not have current data.
3 Bind variables to the fields in the List items (which are
created dynamically from user interaction) so that the values are
automatically updated, but this requires dynamically creating
several Bindable variables and their bindings.
Does anyone have an idea as to the best idea as how to
