Chapter 26. Integrating with Macromedia ... > Working with Recordsets in Flash

Working with Recordsets in Flash

One of ColdFusion's greatest strengths has always been its thoughtful treatment of the concept of a query recordset. Whenever you use a <cfquery> tag to select information from a database, you get back a query recordset object that contains rows and columns of information. Because it's such a natural way to think about data, and because it corresponds so closely to how relational database systems store data internally, it's hard to imagine any ColdFusion application that doesn't deal with query recordsets in one way or another.

One of the Flash Remoting Components is a special ActionScript object called RecordSet, which is similar conceptually to a query object in CFML. Whenever you use the FLASH.result variable to send a query object back to the Flash Player, the data becomes available to ActionScript as an equivalent RecordSet object.
