Actionscript 3 :: Change Column Width In Flex Grid

Jun 23, 2009

I'm using a mx.containers.Grid to layout some data, and the last column is a set of checkboxes. MXML Code snippet:[code]Basically, I want the labels & text values to align however the Grid component sees fit. However, I'd like the checkboxes to be right-aligned. I've tried setting the width of the textValues to 100% and it does nothing. I don't want to use hard-coded pixel values/canvases/etc because it is important that this is easy to change/update.

Flex :: Dynamically Change The Width Of Datagrid Column?

Jun 16, 2009

Can we change the width of the datagrid column dynamically by clicking on the border of the column in order to display the complete string which is too long to be displayed and needs to be scrolled ? If so, How ?

Also, how can we ensure that the column width changes dynamically based on the number of characters / length of string; since many a times the data is too long to be displayed. Can we set the column width to take the length of data into consideration before displaying onto the datagrid ?

Actionscript 3 :: Unable To Change Column Width Dynamically In Flex Datagrid

May 17, 2011

I am using a singleton class (popup, which means it doesn't forget the last used variables) which contains a datagrid. I am making various columns visible/invisible, setting the widths and headers in accordance to data received from a database call. Everything works fine except that when I put the breakpoints before and after the point where I change width of columns, I do not see the change in width of datagrid at all! Instead I see some values totally out of sync as widths of datagrid column! However, since it is a singleton class, the next time I call this popup, I see widths which I did set up in last call.

I must be messing up in calling the setWidth() function (which is my custom function which changes the width of datagrid in action script). What should be the point where I should call this function? I tried in creationComplete, show and in the setter of dataprovider.

Flex :: Applying PaddingRight To Grid Column Not To Grid Header?

Mar 31, 2010

Whenever I add paddingRight to a column in the flex grid, it adds the padding to the header as well.Is anyone familiar with how I can add paddingRight just to the column and not to the header? Below is the column code where I was specifying the padding.

<mx:DataGridColumn width="60" headerText="Type" dataField="Grade" headerStyleName="headerLeft" textAlign="left" draggable="false" resizable="false" headerRenderer="GridHeaderRenderer" paddingRight="5"/>

Flex :: Flash - DataGrid Column Width: One Column To Rule Them All?

Nov 16, 2010

I have a Flex 4, mx:DataGrid with the following (pertinent) properties set:


I have the minWidth set on all of the DataGridColumns and the width set on one of them. If I simply maximize/minimize the display (in browser or stand-alone flash player) of the application, the columns scale up and down nicely. But if you grab the edge of the application and drag it to make it bigger, only one column grows really big. When you drag the size down again, the one column remains big, but all of the other columns get squished way down.

Flex :: Top Horizontal Grid Line On Column Chart Is Not Applying Style

Oct 21, 2010

I have a Flex Column Chart that has a range of 0 - 6 on the y-axis. I have added the following block to change the default colour of the horizontal grid lines to black.



This works fine for all but the horizontal grid line at the top of the chart (at y=6). If I change the maximum value for the y-axis to something different then this new max doesn't have the formatting applied (but all the others do).

how do I get the top line to be black like the rest of the grid lines?

Flex :: DataGrid Column Width Is Not Set Properly?

Jan 4, 2011

In the below example I has called the OptimizeDataGrid method on Button Click event to resize the Column according to the data. whereas on the First Time of the Button Click event It called the function whereas the Datagrdi Column width alone is not set properly.whereas on second time it is working properly.For Eg : In the below statement the text value is coming as 55 and widthPadding is comes as 25. but the sum of these two value is not in the dg.columns[col].width.

dg.columns[col].width = text + widthPadding;

But the same is working on the second time of the Button click event.

Flex :: Air - Get The Parent Of A Custom Grid Column Filter Editor And Open A Popup Window?

Jan 31, 2012

I am trying to figure out how to open a pop up window in my Air application, in a secondary Window, instead of the main application window.I am using the ReusableFX components, which include a custom DataGrid with filtering and other capabilities. The filtering feature displays a pop up window via PopUpManager when you click on the top of a column in the grid.

PopUpManager.addPopUp(this, FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication as DisplayObject);

The problem is that the pop up window opens in the main application - I am assuming because of the 'topLevelApplication' reference.So, I need a way to open this window in the current Air "s:Window". I am assuming I need a way to walk up : this.parent.parent or this.owner.owner - though I have tried that and it did not seem to work (it said null reference).OR, is there a way to get the current top most window / component (NOT the main application / window)?

Update:I decided to create a new project for the component, and add in the Air libraries. Now I am able to access the "NativeApplication.nativeApplication.activeWindow" call. That gives me the correct Air window. However, it does not seem to be working:

PopUpManager.addPopUp(this, NativeApplication.nativeApplication.activeWindow as DisplayObject);

My popup does not appear. I am assuming because "activeWindow" is not actually a DisplayObject?(so how do I get the DisplayObject if that's the case?)

Flex :: Choosing The "visible Column Selector" Mechanism For A Grid?

Nov 11, 2010

there's a need to select a mechanism, allowing user to hide/show columns in a DataGrid.One of suggested ways is adding a button (which looks like a column header, but with no column). When user clicks on it, the list of columns comes and user may select columns to hide/show. But is there any way to have such column in a grid (just a header with no column .. as example - you may see the grid in Mozilla Thunderbird)?

The other, less likely way, was the popup list, appearing when mouse hover the DataGrid. But this list would be used rarely. So, this flashing list would be just a headache for an end-user.

The ways with mouse-clicking .. I'm just afraid, that they would be left unnoticed and user would have a hard days while using a grids with a dozens columns.

Edit #1Maybe it would be better if I just provide a pic of this magical "header with no column", to escape confusion ..

Here's it .. there's a clickable column-header in a grid, but there's no column under it ..

Edit #2There's some area right above scrollbar in the dataGrid, it might be the right place for putting this functionality .. but it seems like I can't use it.

Is there a way to apply a renderer to a grid in a way so that it doesn't modify the values in the data provider?

My problem is that when I sort the grid by that column it sorts by the new value, whereas I want it to sort by the old value that was originally in the dataprovider. Here is my renderer:
