I was looking at all the parameters for a datagrid can came
across "filters". Does anyone know how this is used? I'd really
like to shed my filterFunction for an easier solution to filtering
Craig is correct. The filters proper refers to
flash.filters.* classes like DropShadowFilter. What you are looking
for is the filterFunction. Assign to this property the name of a
function which takes a single parameter and returns a Boolean. The
filterFunction will be called on every record in your dataProvider.
If it returns true then the record will be displayed.
