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

>>>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?
