hi guys

There are some requirments where my screens need to perform some asynchronous database operation with the backend, something which ajax does.
Does Flex provide Ajax-like support?

    All requests are asynchronous calls but its impossible implements synchronous requests in this case you have to use AJAX each (var item2:XML in c1.inside.deep){

    >>>All requests are asynchronous calls
    cool, thanks

    In my scenario i have three text boxes and a screen with data (4 columns)

    column1  column2  column3   column4

    Enter text1:                  Enter text2:
                 Submit Button

    When text1 and text2 are entered the screen (column1,  column2,  column3 ,  column4)  should automatically get refreshed (by making backend call) without clicking on Submit button. how does flex do that?

    That is diffrent question, u may need to open a new ticket for auto-refresh DataGrid on editItem Changed. By the way mantion in your new ticket are u using mx:DataGrid or mx:AdvancedDataGrd
