As far as I know, when you switch views, the view is destroyed when exitted and then re created when you open it again. You should probably store the data in an external static class, or set itemDestructionPolicy = "never" to never destroy the view on exit.
Hope this helps.
I know that you can set these settings and gaving the data persistent isnt the issue as i know how to do this. I just want to know how to detect if a list is empty or populated within the app, any ideas?
(list.dataProvider == null) ??
I suppose you have tried that as well.
Yes I have tried that and nothing, I find it strange that there is no way to detect an empty list as I want to display a message to the users if the list in empty. Any other ideas?? Thanks
