    Custom datagrid sort

    timo89
      Hello,
      I have a datagrid that has a row that contains information similar to this: 1,2,3,4,T4,T4,5,6,..17,29,..43,T44,T44,45.. and so on.. I hope you get the idea.. if an element appears more than one time, it has a "T" at the beginning (this data is from a database and I have to display it in this way). I have to be able to sort this numerically (making the sort function somehow ignore that "T")... i know datagrid only sorts strings, but using a Listener and some other things ( check this out http://www.flash-creations.com/notes/servercomm_database.php ) I managed to make it sort numbers.
      However, the function doesn't work properly it some elements have that "T" at the beginning. Is there an elegant way to do this? (other than writing my own sorting function - maybe bubble sort - sorting the dataprovider and then repopulating the datalist with the sorted dataprovider)
