Hi all,

I am doing the URLyBird app, and there is no specific requirement for the data in the table to automatically update itself. I could add some sort of notification from the db code to publish add/delete/update events to all "clients", but is that needed?

The alternative is to only refresh the data on explicit "queries", i.e. when searching, or when updating a record etc.

What do you think?

So searching the forums is really useful before posting a question that has been asked *millions* of times before.

My apologies.

And the answer seems to be a resounding no, don't automatically refresh the client with events from the server.
