xml data binding and updates
I'm wondering could someone point me in the right direction. I am not sure
if what I am doing is the best way.
Heres the scenario, I have xml data that is displayed using hierarchical
tables (3 levels) in IE5. This works perfectly. I know want to allow the
user to edit the data and save it back to the database. I am struggling with
the concept of tracking the changes that are made.
1) I am considering having an extra element called "changed" at each level
which I set when the user changes a value of that "record" in the table.
The problem with this is that when a value is changed there is no obvious
way of changing another element on the same row. (Seems to work Ok at top
level but on the nested levels I cannot seem to access the underlying row
in the recordset that has changed) I can find the field changed using cellchanged
2) Should I just send the entire xml to the server and determins what has
Am I approaching this in the correct manner?? Are there any other ways I
could try this? I assume what I am doing here is common?
