Hello,

I have an array collection and I’m using AdvancedDataGrid to display the data.
How can we put checkbox for each group and row in Flex AdvanceDataGrid?
 I tried this example http://sites.google.com/site/prosameer/CheckADG.zip here but I couldn’t able to apply it on my situation.
Your help is needed to do the following:
- Add checkbox for each row in Flex AdvanceDataGrid and indicator to the group if its rows partially selected and checked if all rows under that group were selected.
- How can we access that data for further processing, I need to use checked rows for further processing.
- add option to select/deselect all rows/groups
- show row count for each group
- allow the user to expand/collapse all nodes (groups)


Thanks,

Looks like you are looking for a three state checkbox ... have a look at this code ... but you will have to adapt it to your situation. Unfortunately Im currently sort of really blocked by my Job :-(

 
package de.cware.cweb.utils

    import mx.controls.Image;

ChristoferDutz,

I already posted the source of the same example in the question(first post).
I have flat arraycollection and the example is using xmllist and hierarchal data approach and I not that familiar with and i need your help also in the following area.

 Add checkbox for each row in Flex AdvanceDataGrid and indicator to the group if its rows partially selected and checked if all rows under that group were selected.
- How can we access that data for further processing, I need to use checked rows for further processing.
- add option to select/deselect all rows/groups
- show row count for each group
- allow the user to expand/collapse all nodes (groups)

please have a look on it again.

Your help is highly appreciated. (I know that your are blocked by your job ).
