DataGrid in Flex 4.5 Mobile Apps

May 17, 2011 6:59 AM

Using Flex DataGrid is discouraged in Flex mobile apps, and I can understand that to an extent for performance reasons, but if you really want to show data in a data grid, for small data sets is the DataGrid OK, or is it necessary to create a custom component for grid display?

    You can try it and see if performance is good enough.  Some folks just use

    List with custom renderers.

    Performance in my datagrid is "good enough". I'd rather not write the extra code to get sorting etc. However, with verticalScrollPolicy="on" - no scrollbars appearing. Is this another reason to use list, datagroup etc. - or I am just missing something (besides my scrollbar! )
