    null object error - bug?

    Further Group
      I have an app that displays a datagrid after a quick login check. If I click on any of the datagrid's headers, I get the following error:

      TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
      at mx.controls::DataGrid/mx.controls:DataGrid::focusInHandler()

      The strange thing is that this only happens if I haven't first selected one of the rows displayed; if I click the 2nd row, for example, then click the header, it re-orders the data in the manner you would expect.

          Could you please include the source code for a small sample app which reproduces the issue, and let us know what build you are using? When I make a basic DataGrid and click on a header, there is no error. The code I am using is pasted below. Thanks!

            I rebuilt the application in the latest Flex Builder beta, and the problem disappeared.
