Updates not working


Level 2
I'm using FDS with a Java assembler running inside a Tomcat
5.5 server. Everything works fine so far. I use a fill to get my
list of objects and I can update those objects just fine when I
display them in a datagrid and edit them in the cells. However,
when I display the same data bound inside individual textinput
fields, the updates to not 'save'.

For example, when I use a datagrid, edits to a cell result in
a call to UpdateItem on the assembler. However, when I replace the
datagrid with a master/detail list/form combination where clicking
a list item sets the selected object and makes it editable with the
textinputs, the UpdateItem is never called. Do I need to 'commit'
the changes from the fields or send an event? It appears the
datagrid is handling this on its own but maybe I need to do
something manually when I use a text input field. Any ideas?

Nevermind, my mistake. I was thinking that the binding of the
textinput field to the data from FDS by the {} binding mechanism
would work in both directions. I tried manually setting the
modified values from the text fields back to the data object being
edited and it works fine.
