As an example of asynchronous completion, here's a little background on
"cursors" (which you may understand better than I; I was obviously being
loose in my usage).


What I was trying to use "cursor" to say, was having the display be a fixed
number of rows, but sliding down (or up) the full set of rows (I guess
another description of this would be something like a browser's viewport).

And this article has an interesting usage:


"This might be use ful when you do some database applications with
phonegap. Phonegap storage class could be some times slow and difficult
handle. Then you can write a separate plugin to do the querying. If you use
database raw queries you will get the results as cursor data structure. The
below code converts that to json array."

But I can see that removing the top entries that were previously displayed,
and then restoring them when scrolling up, would add to the complications
of writing the code.
