Creating MultiValue Data-Aware Web Elements


Today's users expect the web interfaces to their applications to be highly dynamic. Forms should auto-complete, charts, meters, and tables should update and change based on user actions. To achieve that, you need to create web interface elements that are "data-aware" — connected in real time to the MultiValue data that they display.

While there are several ways to approach this, one well-known architecture is the Model/View/Controller (MVC) approach (fig. 1) that is widely accepted for web-based applications. MVC is a combination of server-side and client-side components.

Model - A server-side component that defines your data. The model can represent one file or combine data from several files. When multiple files are involved you will need to write the code to retrieve and store the data properly.

View - A client-side component, such as a form, that defines the user experience for interacting with the data defined by the model.
