3.0 beta 2

Updating cell value of a dynamic table

The data for my ActiveWidget table comes from a URL as shown below

I now want to update the value of a particular cell in the table and later save it back to the server.

I found some links on this forum for directly manipulating the cell value, but that's only applicable to static data.
myData[1][1] = "some text"; 

How can I update value of a particular cell when the table is formed from dynamic data?
How do I send this info back to the server to be able to save it?

Beta 3 is supposed to add the add/delete/update rows functionality that will update the AW.XML.Table, but not the database. Updating the database itself is independent from AW.
You might want to look at the following posting to get an idea of how to communicate from Javascript to your database as a possible solution.

Thanks for the update, Rick.

Would it also be possible to make changes to multiple grid cells and send all these changes in one shot to the server to update the data?

Certainly. You would write a function to retrieve the changes to the cells and pass them to your sendRequest() function. Then you would write a backend (aspx, php, ...) handler to handle the request and update your database, then wait for the handleResponse() to wrap things up. It's probably worth waiting for AW 2.0 b3 to determine what additional functionality AW will have with regards to add/delete/update rows.
