    Displaying properties from two objects in a datagrid

    Pii T

      Previously I post a discussion on this matter on Flex learning path and haven't got any response on how to do this so I figured that I might as well try again here.


      I'm using drag and drop binding in flash builder 4 on a data-grid. However, the data I need to show need to be query from another object.


      <mx:DataGrid id="dataGrid2" dataProvider="{getMajorDetailsResult.lastResult}">
                      <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Category Name" />
                      <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Require Credits" dataField="requireCredits" resizable="false" width="40"/>


      In this datagrid I bind it with an object MACL which has


      - ID

      - CAT_ID

      - requireCredits


      However, I would like to display CategoryName in the first column but categoryName is in another Object (category)


      - CAT_ID

      - CategoryName


      In this case what should I do?


      I did this so that if in the future Category Name needs to be rename. I can just rename the one in category table.


      Any help is highly appreciated.


      Thank you
