    Getting itemRenderer value in DataGrid

    Mohd Fayaz Level 1

      I have a DataGrid with CheckBox as ItemRendere in one of the column. My requirement is to retrieve all the rows in DataGrid whose checkboxes have been selected. I am using Cursor to accomplish this. But, I dont know how to retrieve the checkbox selected value in cursor. When I debug my application, cursor is reading all the coumn values in DataGrid except the CheckBox column.


      Can anyone please tell me how to read the checkbox value. It is urget.

          Here is a sample code I am using



                       var processList:Array = new Array();
                       processList.length = 0;                                                    
                       var myCursor:IViewCursor = dgFilter.dataProvider.createCursor();

                           if(myCursor.current.select == true)





              <mx:DataGrid id="dgFilter" width="100%" height="100%">
                            <mx:DataGridColumn width="20" dataField="select" headerText=""
                      <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="PID" dataField="pid" width="50" textAlign="center"/>
                      <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Process" dataField="process" textAlign="center"/>
                      <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Name" dataField="name"/>

            itemRenderers are recycled, in your case I'll add an extra field or property to your dataProvider and set that value to true or false if a user checks or unchecks the CheckBox using itemEditEnd.

              There is an example on my blog where the checkbox updates the set of selectedItems.

                Thanks for your reply.

                However, I need some more help on your CheckBoxDataGrid. I need to add "invert selection" functionality in the DataGrid i.e. when I click a button "invert" it should unselect all the selected checkboxes and select all the unselected check boxes.


                I look forward for your help.
