    Grouping in DataGrid

      Is it possible?
      Similar approach as <cfquery group=".."
      and then display the group by across the datagrid display and all the items for that group in their respective columns

          I'd probably approach this as nested DataGrids, or more simply as a List containing DataGrids, one group per list item.

              In your main application file you'd have something like:

              <mx:List dataProvider="{myGroupData}" labeField="groupName" listItemRenderer="{myGroups}" />

              in an external file called myGroups.mxml you'd have something like this:

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
              <mx:Canvas xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">
              import mx.core.Application;
              private function getGroupData(groupID:Number):ArrayCollection{
              //poll your data retrieve individual group information
              return groupData;
              <mx:Label text="{data.groupName}" />
              <mx:DataGrid dataProvider="{getGroupData(data.groupID)}" />

              This of course makes a lot of assumptions about your data model, but it will generate a new header and grid for each group item. how you go about capturing this and writing your filter function is up to you.
