View Full Version : How to link from (advanced) datagrid cells?

04-10-2008, 08:06 AM
My application will have an advanced datagrid with the cells containing a variety of entities (people, places etc). We wish to provide links in the cells to allow users to drill into the displayed data. These links might be http or to another Flex page.

Can anyone tell me how to:
1) place invisible metadata in cells which relate to the displayed entity
2) access this metadata in response to a user click (the retrieval of the row and col indexes of the click is easy enough)
3) format the text in the cell to resemble a hyperlink i.e. underline it and change the mouse cursor on hover.

many thanks in advance
