Okay so using the Pull To Refresh example from KitchenSink, how would it be possible to use something like that (Pulling to refresh the page) to update a TableView of 8 items to update from a MySQL table, if anything changes (Such as a date, etc.)?
What you are asking is essentially how and why the table pull exists.
If you are actually creating the tableView using data sent over an HTTP request (XHR), then you should be able use the tableView 'scroll' and 'scrollEcnd' events to trigger another pull of data via XHR and reset the data property of your tableView.
What do you mean? Explain a little more.
