Access table data like a recordset

Hi All,

I was just wondering if there is a way to access the data that's populated into the table as though it was a recordset?

Please let me know!

Thanks.

The data is provides via a Javascript array (at least that's the way I use it), and you have full access to the array at all times.
What sort of things are you looking to do with the data?

I need to monitor the data, and perform commands as certain data changes. I have written a script that monitors a text file and will refresh the grid when the file size changes.

would you please provide me with an example script?

an example script of what? I am confused on what you are really trying to do with the grid and it's data that you are not already doing?

Sorry for the confusion...

I already have the script that monitors the text file and displays a grid in my web page. However, I would like to develop a separate script that will allow me to monitor specific data. Ideally, I need to iterate through the data much like a recordset or array, and make use of the data. All I need from you is an example call of this array, and where it's coming from.

I thought that I might be able to use what has already created, rather than looking for another option.

You can use

var columns = obj.getColumnCount();
var rows = obj.getRowCount();

for(var r=0; r<rows; r++){
  for(var c=0; c<columns; c++){
    var t = obj.getCellText(c, r);
  }
}

Thanks! My problem now, is that i'm getting a RowCount of 0, regardless of how many rows are in the data...

I added a setTimeout to wait for the data to finish loading, and now it works.

I'm getting a script error when calling obj.getCellText(c,r) now though.
