View Full Version : Getting the text value of a DataGrid cell

Hi everyone!

I have a quick question about the DataGrid.

I realize that getSelectedIndex() will return the ID of the row in focus on the grid, but how do I get the text value of a focused cell within the row?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Joe!

Just write this event handler and change the instance of the grid as per ur convienent and see what will dispy it.

myListener.cellPress = function(event)
var colName=mcGrd.getColumnAt(event.columnIndex).colum nName
var cellValue=mcGrd.selectedItem[colName]
trace("cellValue: "+cellValue)

I do it this way, which seems a little more straightforward.

myDataGrid.addEventListener("change", myDataGridChange);
function myDataGridChange(eventObj:Object):Void {
myTextArea.text = myDataGrid.selectedItem.ColumnName;
