Model/View: Restrict data in model based on what is clicked on by the user
I am a newbie in the Model/View design. As far as I understand, it is expected to separate the Model and the View as much as possible as a design principle. However, I wish to use this to be able to show data that I get from a server. Since I know that I have a LOT of data in total, I would only like to get the data that I need to show to the user. Thus, I would like to only fetch the data that the user requires and wants to see and not the rest.
AFAIK this seems to go against the Model/View philosophy (telling the model to now fetch data based on user input).
How can I integrate this functionality using the Model/View approach?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
No it is not. You'll be using a "rolling window" on your data.
What kind of view are you going to use ?
