    Populating DataGrid with lots of data.

      I'm populating a DataGrid with a whole lot of data (say 300,000 rows) via an HTTPService object. The problem here is that the user is treated to a nice, blank DataGrid while the data loads up from the web server. The solution, as I see it, is to use a custom IList object as the dataProvider that only loads up the *visible* rows from the web server (i.e. if the first visible row on the DataGrid is row 1000, and it is displaying 20 rows, then only load up rows 1000 to 1020 from the web server).

      Since I'm still very much a Flex and ActionScript newbie, this seems to be a non-trivial thing to implement. To avoid reinventing the wheel, I'm wondering if there's already a solution to this problem within the Flex framework. Thanks in advance for any help with this!
