Im trying to select a value from a specific column in a datagrid. That column is defined in a xml-file
firstColumn=dgXML.@firstColumn; // Column7

When I click an item in the datagrid, I want to select the content of that column.
but it does not work even though everything works perfectedly, when referring the correct column like this.
firstColumn has been set as String and is correctly traced just above
trace(firstColumn); // Column7
e.target.selectedItem.firstColumn; // undefined
