Sort DataGrid by column after save (AS3/spark)
I have a spark DataGrid, where the user can sort the row by clicking the column headers... as expected. When they double click a row, it go to an edit. After clicking the save (or back button
[not the browser back button]) the are returned to the updated datagrid. I want to retain the sorting they had before the edit. Here is code I have to capture the sort column.
This does get the column name and columnIndices as expect. When the screen refreshes with the DataGrid, I have the follow code, which is being executed:
protected function onSortChange(event:GridSortEvent):void
app.sortColumnIndices = event.columnIndices;
app.sortColumnName = event.newSortFields.name;
The app.sortColumnIndices and app.sortColumnName both contain the "previous" values that I want to use in the sort.
var sortColumnName:SortField = new SortField(app.sortColumnName,true);
sort.fields = [sortColumnName];
entitiesDP.sort = sort;
dg.dataProvider = entitiesDP;
The problem is the DataGrid displays in the original, unsort order..... HELP! PLEASE!
add stage.invalidate(); to the stage - that might work
Thanks for the reply. Sorry, I didn't get notified of your post reply. I am not following what you mean "add to stage"? I am working in FLEX, not Flash. Thanks
maybe you need dg.sortByColumns(app.sortColumnIndices, true); I really have little idea, but I think having "true" there in editable grid makes it automatically resort itself when data changes.
