itemRenderers get reused, so you need to use the dataChange event to ensure you set the renderer to the right state for each new set of data. I use the creationComplete event to initialise anything that can span datasets, and the dataChange event to reconfigure the renderer for the current

You don't change the content-type to reflect gzip compression being on on the server. Gzip is a content-encoding and the browser should seamlessly decode it. You do need to set the HTTP headers to tell the browser is gzipped though, eg here's a gzip-encoded response example: Request Accept

I find it hard to believe you are running a back end that's incapable of sending AMF. I thought perl was problematic for AMF...but even it has a solution that works...so what *are* you using on the backend? You running a VAX machine or something? :-) JSON isn't binary but is more compact

I guess the other thing to consider is where you are using them. If you put them in code that's called frequently it's probably more of a problem than if you are using them in code that's called occasionally. On 05/03/2009, at 10:42 AM, Sam Lai wrote: I thought Alex said before that
