I have an advanced datagrid display product information with a main category, sub category and then a list of products within that category.

Problem that I have is that all the product within the category are in a random order and even tho they are in order from the cfc, when outputted in the datagrid they are random.

I'm thinking this needs a sortCompare function but i'm not sure how to implement this into my code.  Any help be appriciated.

Heres the code for my results function:

public function resultGetSubmissionsByCategory(event:ResultEvent):void {
				
	               //results returned by the ColdFusion CFC are a query
	               //which can be cast to a Flex ArrayCollection object
	               submissionsAryCol = event.result as ArrayCollection;
				   submissionsAryCol.filterFunction = filterArrayLike;
	               
	               //convert the ArrayCollection to a GroupingCollection
	               var submissionsNameGroup:Grouping = new Grouping();
	               
	               //what column in the query results should be used to group on
	               var nameGroupFld1:GroupingField = new GroupingField("parentCategory") ;
	               var nameGroupFld2:GroupingField = new GroupingField("categoryDescription") ;
	               //set the fields property of the Grouping 
	               //to an array of GroupingField objects
	               submissionsNameGroup.fields = [ nameGroupFld1, nameGroupFld2 ];
	               
	               submissionsGroupColl =  new GroupingCollection();
	               
	               //set the source property of the GroupingCollection
	               //to the flat data ArrayCollection
	               submissionsGroupColl.source = submissionsAryCol;
	               
	               //set the grouping property of the GroupingCollection
	               //to the Grouping object that contains the fields
	               //to group the data on
	               submissionsGroupColl.grouping = submissionsNameGroup;
	               
	               //call refresh so the view is updated
	               submissionsGroupColl.refresh();	   
			}

Well propably your list of products is a plain ArrayCollection. If this is the case you could initialize every one of these lists with a sorting function. Another alternative would be to use a custom dataProvider (by extending GroupingCollection or something similar).
