Hello, I'm looking for a way to filter a datagrid without
applying a filterFunction on the arrayCollection. The filter is
static. I need it to filter out a particular column of a table that
has no value, so only the items that do have a value in that column
will be displayed. The reason why I do not want to use a
filterFunction on the arrayCollection is because the array would
need to be refreshed every time I update an item and for the way
I've done things, I am not sure how that would work.
The phrasing of your question seems to provide the answer.
"Is there any way to filter without a filterfunction" - well
probably not. So to meet your needs you should either populate your
arrayCollection using different logic, or else go with the
filterfunction. By the way, the arraycollection has an
eventListener built in so you can automatically detect when the
contents has changed (using a listener) - see
