I have attached a file as a sample, basically I want to select a row in a datagrid and move it up or down in the order using buttons outside the datagrid. I'm sure this is simple - but some how I'm not making it work.

Sorry I guess I did not explain it very well. What I am trying to do is move the items in the row up or down, so that the datagrids row items are in a new order. ie if you select a row at index 1 and move it up the itemss in row index 1 becomes the items in row index 0 and the items in row index 0 becomes the items in row index 1.

ah ok. what you need to do then is swap the order in your dataprovider,whether it's an array or xml or whatever, and then just refresh your data provider

I don't believe in re-inventing the wheel - remember the "experts" are all volunteers - for me it's about knowledge sharing - if there's a solution out there why should we re-type it here when the answer is already out there.
Also I could fake it and pretend that it's all me, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due i.e other people who've worked on something.
Not sure what you would consider an "Expert answer" - sorry to have let everyone down. Promise to try harder.

After doing a lot a trial and error I actually figured out how to achieve this:

function swapLines(a,b){
	var a_obj:Object = subs_dg.getItemAt(a);
	var b_obj:Object = subs_dg.getItemAt(b);
	
	subs_dg.removeItemAt(a); 
                     subs_dg.addItemAt(a, b_obj);
	
	subs_dg.removeItemAt(b); 
                     subs_dg.addItemAt(b, a_obj);	
};

I knew there must be a simple solution and there it is....
