    Default sort AdvancedDataGrid


      You can sort a column in an AdvancedDataGrid Flex 4 from a button instead of clicking on the header?

          Yes you can do that. Just turn off the sort in the datagrid with sortableColumns="false"

          From you click button method call a function that will do the sort you array collection for you like:


          private function mySort():void{
                          //New Sort
                          var sort:Sort = new Sort();
                          sort.fields = [new SortField("Field01",true),
                              new SortField("Field02",true),
                              new SortField("Field03",true)];
                          sort.fields[2].numeric = true; //where Field03 is date
                          acOfADG.sort = sort; //where acOfADG is the array collection of the advance datagrid


          I hope this help.
