How do I fade/transition the background color of  a row in a Flex 4.0 AdvancedDataGrid?

Hi:

I have an mx:AdvancedDataGrid on a panel in a Flex 4.0 application.

When a new row gets added to the grid, I would like to have it's background color be something like red.
Then over time, I would like to fade/transition this background color to the default row background color for that grid.

I'm adding rows 1 at a time as I get them from a data service call.
I would like to do this for each new row that gets added.

I've seen examples of transition states and fading, but it's not clear how (and if) they would/could apply to rows in a DataGrid.

It would be great if someone could help out with ideas shortly as this would add some sizzle to a client demo that's due in the next day or so.

Thanks,
JohnB

create an ItemRenderer...
override the set data method
and then apply your effect in wich set data call

I was able to change the color of the cells in a row and then change it.
I added a (hidden) column with a timestamp.
Once the row's time stamp exceeded a threshold, I used the row's default background.
I used an item renderer for this.

It would be nice to get the "Fade" effect to happen on a per row basis.
Is this possible with AdvancedDataGrid rows/cells?
I've used it before with standard controls.

Thanks,
JohnB

Ok, there is 2 way of doing this....
1º and the way I current know is setting the same itemRenderer for each and every row that is setting the effects in the itemRenderer... it's actually easy.
2º and the way I don't know you can create you own Advanced data grid extending from a AdvancedDataGrid and in every change of row value, you can apply the effects
