    Datagrid itemrenderer and itemeditor


      Hi Everyone,


      I have one Datagrid with one column as Checkbox item renderer and other column as TextArea item editor.


      Now my problem is communication between item editor and item renderer.


      When user enter text in TextArea the Checkbox should get selected automatically.


      Please give me some idea around it.

          It depends on how you set up your checkbox renderer.  Is it reflecting

          selectedItems or a field in the dataprovider?

            Yes it is reflecting my dataprovider as i need to change some records after selection of some fields.


            Here is some snippet of my code:


            Column for Checkbox in datagrid:


            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Impacted" itemRenderer="com.basepin.view.components.CenteredCheckBox"  rendererIsEditor="true" editorDataField="selected" dataField="selected"/>


            Column for TextArea:


            <mx:DataGridColumn headerText="Room" dataField="level_room" width="250" textAlign="center">

                 <mx:itemEditor >


                           <mx:TextArea  wordWrap="true" borderStyle="none" editable="true"  maxChars="45"   />






            Bindable ArrayCollection:



            public var _acProjectIssueLevels:ArrayCollection;

            and this is directly given to dataprovider.
            For Checkbox Itemrenderer I am using mxml file:
            <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
            <mx:HBox xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"  width="100%" height="35" horizontalAlign="center" verticalAlign="middle">
                      override public function set data(value:Object):void
                            //super.data = value;
                           // not sure of the details on when or why, but sometimes this method is passed a null value
                            if(value == null)
                            _data = value;
                            cbx.selected = Boolean(_data.selected);
                     override public function get data():Object
                      if (_data != null)
                            return _data;
                      return null;
            private function updateSelected():void
            _data.selected = cbx.selected;
            private var _data:Object;
            public function get selected():Object
                 return Object(_data.selected);
            <mx:CheckBox  id="cbx" width="14" change="updateSelected()" />
