Binding to data which loads in the background

Binding to data which loads in the background

This is to announce that Karsten has a blog post (authored by Andrew Whiddet) on the subject of asynchronous data binding [1]. It's likely to be of interest to you if you're a software developer or you're a designer with a developer sensibility. It's relevant to our previous post about the AdventureWorks Product Photos [2] sample and tutorial which loads data from a database into a collection ready for data binding inside Expression Interactive Designer. Typically, data access is expensive in time, so a good pattern is to keep the user-interface responsive whilst the data loads in the background as the post discusses.
