I want to have a button on each row of a data grid that is ENABLED only if the length of the data in the note column is greater than 0, or is not nulll, which ever works.  I've futzed with this all afternoon and have not come up with the best solution.  

Thanks



            <mx:AdvancedDataGrid id="dgiiM"  dataProvider="{orders}" visible="true" fontSize="12" rowCount="20" paddingLeft="10" editable="true"
                  borderStyle="outset" dropShadowEnabled="true" shadowDistance="5" dropShadowColor="#000000" width="98%" themeColor="#FF9C01">
                  <mx:columns>
                        <mx:AdvancedDataGridColumn dataField = "Supplier" headerText="Supplier" styleFunction="colorDescription" fontSize="11" width="100" editable="false"/>

Is the "Note" property a property of the datagrid row? If yes, then yuo shouldn't write
{outerDocument.data.Note.length >0}

Open in new window

but
{data.Note.length > 0}

Open in new window

Because the renderer usually has a "data" property, that relates to the current row-element.

Note is the name of the data in that column which is part of the dataprovider, but not displayed in the grid itself.  I'll try this and get right back to you.

Ok ... if this is the case, the expression "data.Note.length" should work, but if Note can be null, I would rather suggest to use the following:
(data.Note &amp;&amp; (data.Note.lenght > 0))

Open in new window


You have to write "& a m p ;" (i added a space between every char to prevent EE from excaping the text automatically) instead of "&" if you use the ampersand char in the xml-section.
