[Video] Controller vs Foundset vs Dataset
Servoy's controller, foundset and dataset objects are similar enough that they can create a bit of confusion as to their differences and when best to use each one -- especially if you are new to Servoy.
I cover these objects and slightly more in a quick video I put together in response to this forum topic:
As such, I did make a mistake when describing the controller object (I don't think I've iterated the controller object since Servoy was like version 2). You actually do need to set the index if you're not on the correct record with "controller.setSelectedIndex() = xxx).
In spite of the few mistakes, I hope seeing the various objects under real circumstances is a good thing for understanding.
