Advanced Datagrid : fade effect

hi guys

I am working with flex advanced datagrid
when an item is changed in any row of AdvancedDataGrid, i want a Fade effect on that row.

Is that possible to do that in action script?

This is how i am creating the columns

public class TradeGrid extends VBox{

private function createColumn(columnIndex:int,fieldObject:Object):AdvancedDataGridColumn{
var column:AdvancedDataGridColumn = new AdvancedDataGridColumn();
column.headerText = fieldObject.caption;                   
column.editable = true;
//here i want a fade effect ( like it should fade from Black to white)
return column;
   }
}

Is it possible to do that?
any help will be greatly appreciated

thanks

Well , Some kind of effect would be nice on that row which is changed by the user..
Fade or change in color would be fine.

Say I have editable  datagrid with 2 columns 'id' and
'name'.  I have 5 rows something like
Id   Name
1.     Jay
2.      Peter
3.     Tracy
4.     John
5.      Erwin

Modify row:  textbox
Modify name: textbox
Submit button


Now user enters 4 in modify row textbox and
User enters jhonny in Modify name textbox and clicks
Submit button. So the name in fourth row of datagrid should change
From John to jhonny with some fade effect on that row.

So basically when the value in a datagrid row changes
I want some fade effect on that row.
Maybe I need to use the 'change' event listener but not sure..

You can do text fading ONLY when fonts are EMBEDDED

But I will not recommend for such not important feature add couple KB into your file

ok instead of fading the entire row is it possible to fade the text which has changed.
In above example when 'John' is  changed to 'Jhonny' i want the text fade effect on 'Jhonny'

Basically i want the user to see the text change...

thx.

                                                var item:Object = data[DataGridListData(listData).dataField];
                                                if(item == "'Jhonny")
