Hello Expert,

I am using <mx:DataGrid/> in my component. Initially i put height=0, after calling server i am calculating height and i am increasing the height of DataGrid.There i am trying to decrease from owner height. But i am seeing no effect.

Please could you help me ?
public function set commandDetails(cmdDtls:CommandVO):void
if(cmdDtls.argumentList==null || cmdDtls.argumentList.length==0)
{
  argLbl.includeInLayout = false;
  argLbl.visible = false;
  dG.includeInLayout = false;
  dG.visible = false;
  moreDesc.includeInLayout = false;
  moreDesc.visible = false;
 //owner.height -= dGMaxHeight; 
}else
{
dG.includeInLayout = true;
dG.dataProvider = cmdDtls.argumentList;
var rows:int = cmdDtls.argumentList.length;
var calculatedHeight:int =dG.measureHeightOfItems(0,rows)+dG.headerHeight+2*rows;
if(calculatedHeight > dGMaxHeight)
{
     dG.height = dGMaxHeight;
     dG.rowCount = dG.rowCount - 1;
}
else
{
    dG.height = calculatedHeight;
    //owner.height -= (dGMaxHeight-dG.height)

}

}

<mx:DataGrid headerBackgroundSkin="@Embed(source='/assets/Panel_headerSkin.png')" id="dG" headerStyleName="datagridHeader"  width="675" height="0" variableRowHeight="true"
				  includeInLayout="false" >
			<mx:columns>
				<mx:DataGridColumn width="125" dataField="name" showDataTips="true" dataTipField="name" headerText="Argument Name" wordWrap="true"/>
				<mx:DataGridColumn id="argDesc" width="350" dataField="description" showDataTips="true" dataTipField="description" headerText="Argument Description" wordWrap="true"/>
				<mx:DataGridColumn width="200" dataField="dbRef" headerText="Argument DBRef" wordWrap="true"/>

I don't know why you need to change the size if you can use includeInLayout, but anyway easist for you to use maxHeight

<mx:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" 
				xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" 
				xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx" minWidth="955" minHeight="600">
<mx:DataGrid id="dG" dataProvider="[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]" width="675" height="100%" maxHeight="0" variableRowHeight="true"
			 includeInLayout="{dG.maxHeight != 0}" visible="{dG.maxHeight != 0}">
	<mx:columns>
		<mx:DataGridColumn width="125" dataField="name" showDataTips="true" dataTipField="name" headerText="Argument Name" wordWrap="true"/>
		<mx:DataGridColumn id="argDesc" width="350" dataField="description" showDataTips="true" dataTipField="description" headerText="Argument Description" wordWrap="true"/>
		<mx:DataGridColumn width="200" dataField="dbRef" headerText="Argument DBRef" wordWrap="true"/>
	</mx:columns>
</mx:DataGrid>
<mx:Button label="Full Size" click="dG.maxHeight = (dG.maxHeight == 0 ? NaN : 0)"/>
<mx:Button label="Fix Size" click="dG.maxHeight = (dG.maxHeight == 0 ? 300 : 0)"/>
</mx:Application>

Hi Expert,

My App DataGrid is able to reduce the height by calling setTimeOut(setHeight,200) in onResult().

Thanks,
