Well, to be clear, the DataGrid component did not come with Director 2004. A developer can copy the SWC file over and have it available within Director.
I can tell you that any of the Flash components which were not included in the release of Director 2004, were left out on purpose. The reason was because there was some degree of incompatibility at release. Specific what that is? I don't know the specific details.
This does not mean that the DataGrid will not function in your project. It could simply mean that data binding doesn't work. Test Test Test is my main suggestion.
As for using the DataGrid... You have access to all the exposed methods and properties to any component you add to Director. Thus you should be able to uses anything found here....
The Grid Compnent is actually located in Director immediately after install ( I never tranferred it) ... but its not part of the Flash Components menu/toolbar ... just the Code Library.
I am using it with INM's VisionDB which recommends the Grid for Director, although it took me a few minutes to figure out where it was located.
Anyways, that aside, I figured out where to adjust their coding (INMs) to affect the column widths better ... problem was they were using the column title as the width catalyst rather than the longest entry in the column.
All-in-all it works really well and so far there are no issues with the Flash Grid component in Director MX 2004 10.1 so at least I have a good option for cross platform grids now.
