Let's face it, the Macromedia Flash DataGrid component, as provided by Macromedia, is basically useless. No word-wrapping, no horizontal scrolling, no embedding of style sheets, etc. I, for one, have had enough! The TUFaT.com Flash Datagrid builds on the existing Macromedia DataGrid component, but adds a large amount of functionality, which finally makes this component useful to real-life applications.
Flash developers now have much more control over the FDataGrid Component than you ever had before. You will now be able to change the font color and style of individual cells, change the background style of individual cells, specify the color of a column EVEN when alternateRowColors is enabled (previously, alternateRowColors overrided column colors), toggle horizontal gridlines, use horizontal scrollbars, wrap text (even text within the headers!), remove that ugly header dividing bar, insert .css style sheet properties, and much more!
The FDataGrid Component is made by Macromedia to provide developers with a useful tool for displaying data in a sortable, editable grid. However, as provided by Macromedia, the DataGrid component has many limitations. These Extensions get around some of those limitations, while building on the existing DataGrid component, so that you do not lose any existing functionality.
These modifications costs $5, and include 100% of the source code, as well as the examples illustrated in the demo, and an API for the new functions in PDF format. The download does NOT include the DataGrid component itself. It is assumed that you already posses the DataGrid component, available from Macromedia. If you are using Flash 7 (also known as Flash MX 2004), then the Datagrid component comes with the Flash authoring environment. If you are using Flash 6, then the DataGrid component must be purchased from Macromedia with a DevNet kit.
