I am redesigning a homegrown ERP/cost management system based in Access to run in MySQL with a Flex designed front end. My question is this: I have a tab based interface with sub-tabs. One is "HR Functions." I used the application generator to create a datagrid that displays employeeID, last name, and first name from the employee table.  I have several other tabs in the HR section such as an employee information form, work history, assignment information, etc, that pull from 3 different tables. I want to use the if(dataGrid.selectedItem) statement to control what is displayed throughout the HR section. For instance, if I find my employee id and highlight it in the datagrid, I want the employee informatino form to populate with all of my information in the employee info tab. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
