You don't need to use hidden Label controls to populate a request object. You can use any bindable text property. For example:
private var firstName : String = "Bob"
Rather than binding to the grid you should bind to the dataProvider the grid uses. So something like this should work:
The precise syntax depends on the data type of the items in your dataProvider (strongly-typed object, XML, etc), so post back with more detail if you get stuck.
Thanks a lot for your reply I give that a try today and will report back with the outcome.
I believe we are out of sink; ‘time wise’ as I'm in New Zealand so please bare with me if answers does not come strait away.
I have been trying the code but I did not get it right! This piece of code I use and wanted to build on was from this site: http://www.switchonthecode.com/tutorials/flex-datagrid-adding-rows-using-a-popup
As said before all works very well in this code section I’m just trying to not have to select the Datagrid item to be able to use it and send it to my Database.
