    Filtering datagrid with textInput?


      I have a datagrid that is populated from MySQL, I would like to have a "search" box on the page that will filter based on input.


      An example in Flash is here: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/quickstart/datagrid_pt3.html


      The example there is instant, I do not really need instant. If it needs to be done with an onClick button event, that is fine.


      I have read through several web pages and forum posts here and have yet to find anything that I could understand.  Any help is welcome, links, code snippets, even just plain old advice.


      I really appreciate in advance guys.

          Look for examples on using filterFunction in ArrayCollection.


          If you want a TextInput in the header, that is more challenging, but there should be examples out there.

            OK What I had done before I saw this reply was create a copy of the getAllCustomer() function and changed this:

            $stmt = mysqli_prepare($this->connection, "SELECT * FROM $this->tablename");

            to this:

            $stmt = mysqli_prepare($this->connection, "SELECT * FROM customer WHERE customer.company LIKE '%$search%'");

            And with a button I call this:

            getAllCustomerResult.token = customerService.getAllCustomerSearch(custSearchText.text);



            I know this is creating a lot of overhead for my server as it is another flex ->  PHP -> MySQL call.


            I know this can be acheived without this and I did see references to this ArrayCollecton elsewhere I was just clueless on how to do this.


            Can you provide a link to an easy to follow article on this.


            Thanks a ton though.
