ALSO FOR CLARITY: This issue is with Flexilicious ExtendedDataGrid. I'm new to Flex and did not originally catch that...
LATEST UPDATE: Issue answered here. Some one at stackoverflow had a similar issue and it was resolved. Solution provided for convenience. This is the line of code I was missing:
comboHeaderColumn.useLabelFunctionForFilterCompare = true;
that line is followed by these:
comboHeaderColumn.filterComboBoxBuildFromGrid = true;
comboHeaderColumn.labelFunction = formatState;
where formatState is a local method that formats the data for the combobox.
Update: I now have the combo boxes loading with the correct data, but when I select a value it does not filter the data... Does anybody have this working?
Does filterComboBoxBuildFromGrid work? I get "All" and a blank row even though the column has some data. I have about 20 columns and anywhere from 20k to 500k rows of data possible so these filters are essential.
For Request Reason and State I do this: comboHeaderColumn.filterComboBoxBuildFromGrid = true;
When you click Request Reason or State combo box I get this:
The Custom Date filter works and the text filters work, but the combo box's do not. Any help, suggestions or link to an article would be nice.
