    DataGroup: alternatingItemColors ?

    gdas@nsol

      How can I use the attribute "alternatingItemColors" with a DataGroup component? The DataGroup I'm using has an itemRenderer which has no background (no Rect or something). So I tried to place the attribute "alternatingItemColors="[#FFFFFF, #DDDDDD]" in both, the DataGroup and the ItemRenderer, but with no result.

       

      What's the way to do that? Thanks in advance

          I agree, this is confusing.

           

          With an out-of-box renderer, the alternatingItemColors works just fine:

              <s:DataGroup
                  alternatingItemColors="[red,blue]"
                  itemRenderer="spark.skins.spark.DefaultItemRenderer">
                  <s:layout>
                      <s:VerticalLayout />
                  </s:layout>
                  <s:ArrayCollection>
                      <fx:String>primitive data 1</fx:String>
                      <fx:String>primitive data 2</fx:String>
                      <fx:String>primitive data 3</fx:String>
              </s:DataGroup >

           

          But with any custom itemRenderer, it is as if the property is not inherited and doesn't take effect. Why is that?
