Flex 3 large datagrid

I have a flex application in which I have some large data girds being loaded from xml files.  A few of my users have noticed that when these data grids are viewed using IE it seems as if the refresh rate is too slow as the grids start running into each other, of course if using Firefox everything works fine. Anyone have any ideas as to why this may be happening with IE but seems to work fine with Firefox?

Thanks

Found it: I had wmode set to opaque - had that in there from an old menu system that I was no longer using - removed that and the problem went away.

- is too vague, please explain further and maybe provide a screenshot?

You might want to use an alternative to the default DataGrid in Flex, try this: http://www.elfgrid.com/

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

My apologizes I realized the question was vague to say the least later in the day.  I have a panel and in this panel I have added several data grids of various sizes - its a product catalog type of application with a tree for navigation however when they first get to the page they wanted to be able to see all the data grids in the panel and if desired click on a particular product type and look only at that data grid.  The problem in IE occurs within this panel where I have stuffed all these data grids.  I have attached a screen shot.  If I remove the panel and only show one data grid allowing the data grid to handle the scrolling then it works fine in IE.

Thanks

Despite the problem being solved by the originator, I do object to lexxwern's response.

lexxwern quickly referred to a vendor solution with a purchase price, and having not considered the problem at hand, has accummulated points without a) actually providing a solution and b) referring instantly to a 3rd party product without evaluating the reasons for needing to pursue.
Clearly this is a case of a 'marked expert' receiving credit for no real contribution.

I believe that ExpertsExchange should build primarily on the basis of 1) personal submission, 2) links to open source software, 3) vendor (but make it clear) if available - do you agree?

I don't think that would necessarily work because individual askers have the freedom to choose any comment(s) they find useful as answers. I see no way the moderators enforcing guidelines as to which comment should be selected as an answer.

As of me making no real contribution .. I think the question asker's are best suited to judge that. This can be debated elsewhere.

In this particular case, there were no code snipplets posted by the asker so it was virtually impossible for me to provide a specific solution. Sometimes having a generic solution also helps (you may want to check out "Time Tested Solutions" in TAs.

Here there was a specific alternative available for a sleeker, lighter, faster DataGrid and I made the link available to the asker. If he/she finds it useful they'll reward it with points. Else not. I'm okay with both outcomes.

I would not want to drag the open source v/s proprietary software debate here as I've grown tired of it. Both have there strengths and situations decide which is more suitable.
