Is there a way to set text within items like mx:List and
mx:DataGrid so that it is selectable (and can be copied via Ctrl+C)
without the text being editible. In some cases I need a list of
data with text selectable for use in other applications but I don't
want to edit the text values as well.
Hope this makes sense, Any advice would be greatly
AFAIK the standard element in item renderers is Label, which
probably why you are unable to select text text.
SO, you have to create your own itemrenderers and instead of
Label, place TextInput control there. TextInput has a property
editable, which prevents it being edited and you will be able to
copy the text.
