hi guys

I have a requirment, been trying hard to solve this.

In my appliaction the following functions are called



private function buildColumn(headers:Object,fields:Object):void{
 dataGrid.addEventListener(flash.events.KeyboardEvent.KEY_UP,createAutoPopulate);
dataGrid.addEventListener(AdvancedDataGridEvent.ITEM_EDIT_END,itemEditEndHandler);
            }

private function createAutoPopulate(event: flash.events.KeyboardEvent) : void {      
PopUpManager.addPopUp(dataGrid, this, false);      //show data            
tradeLookUp.dataGrid.addEventListener(CheckBoxEvent.CHECKBOX_TOGGLED,populatedata);
dataGrid.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,closepopupOnouterGridClick);
}

private function itemEditEndHandler(event:AdvancedDataGridEvent):void{
if(event.currentTarget.columns[event.columnIndex].editable){
..code
   }
}

private function populatedata ( event:CheckBoxEvent ) : void {
soeIdtoDisplay = event != null && event.data != null ? event.data.userId : "";
From here i want to call itemEditEndHandler()  and pass the AdvancedDataGridEvent.
any idea how i can do that?
                  
//AdvancedDataGridEvent evnt =  ??
//      itemEditEndHandler(evnt);
                  
}

If you are extended an itemRenderer you should able to dispatch and event.
I need full code

var advancedDataGridEvent:AdvancedDataGridEvent =
            new AdvancedDataGridEvent(AdvancedDataGridEvent.ITEM_EDIT_END, false, true);        advancedDataGridEvent.columnIndex = listData.columnIndex;
advancedDataGridEvent.dataField = listData.dataField;
advancedDataGridEvent.rowIndex = listData.rowIndex;
advancedDataGridEvent.itemRenderer = this;
 advancedDataGridEvent.reason = AdvancedDataGridEventReason.CANCELLED;
dispatchEvent(advancedDataGridEvent);

>> tradeLookUp.dataGrid.addEventListener(CheckBoxEvent.CHECKBOX_TOGGLED, populatedata);
I find the above instruction looking strange, uncommon: You listen on a DataGrid for CheckBoxEvent's.
No offense meant, but isn't that weird?
Maybe you have to rethink your design. Can you explain it to us?

why?
The datagrid contains a checkbox column. when checkbox in each row is checked or unchecked i am calling populatedata function.

I would expect that checking/unchecking the checkbox editor, changes your datagrid data.
That is something you can listen for.
