I have an Advanced datagrid that uses a button as an Item renderer in one column and displays a date in the other. When clicked the button need to remove the date in its row from the ArrayCollection that is the data provider.
The problem is how to tell which index that item is in the ArrayCollection. I know there is an easy way to reference it I just can't find it.

When I drill down trough event.CurrentTarget.data I can get the date column data but I really need the index it is in for the ArrayCollection.
Thanks

would this be what you are after?
yourArrayCollection.getItemIndex(yourDataGrid.selectedItem)

Fuzzy_Logic_ is right.

>> When clicked the button need to remove the date in its row from the ArrayCollection that is the data provider

var index:int = yourArrayCollection.getItemIndex(yourDatagrid.selectedItem);
if (index>-1)
   yourArrayCollection.remove(index);
