setting priorities for listeners

hi guys

I have my customgrid like this

public class CustomGrid extends VBox

private var id:String = "";
private function buildColumn(headers:Object,fields:Object):void{

private function createAutoPopulate(event: flash.events.KeyboardEvent) : void {      
PopUpManager.addPopUp(tradeLookUp.dataGrid, this, false);      //show data
PopUpManager.centerPopUp(tradeLookUp.dataGrid);     //center popup


private function itemEditEndHandler(event:AdvancedDataGridEvent):void{
use 'id' here  

private function  populatedata ( event:CheckBoxEvent ) : void {
id = event != null && event.data != null ? event.data.userId : "";


buildColumn()  is the first function which is called.

createAutoPopulate()  is second function which is called

itemEditEndHandler()  is the third function which is called

populatedata()  is the last function which is called

but the problem is i want populatedata() to be the third function which should be called and
itemEditEndHandler() should be called last.

from populatedata() i will have the 'id' which i can use in itemEditEndHandler().

any idea how i can set the priorities? i want populatedata()  to be called before itemEditEndHandler().

The first problem you cannot use "id" variable name in AS classes because id already declared in UIComponent

Another problem I cannot create valid project using your custom class. Please can you attach a working example.

If you can attach a whole project it's better. Don't worry I can read any code

Those methods will be called when the corresponding event is "seen" or "heard", so imo if you want the methods to be called in that specific order, you have to make sure that the events occur in that specific order. But I'm afraid that is somehting you don't control, do you?
Why is that specific order important to you? Maybe you have to rethink that...
