Ajaxian Featured Tutorial: Building a Flex DataGrid

Category: Adobe, Tutorial

<>p>Here’s the first entry in what we hope will become a regular feature on Ajaxian. The Ajaxian Featured Tutorial will feature a tutorial that we’ve found interesting and we think the community will enjoy. Now granted, we realize that not everyone will find it interesting and we’re okay with that. We want to spread the tutorial love equally among the many different technologies that make RIA development easy and fun.

This week, we’ve got a nice one for all of you Adobe Flex aficionados. The boys over at Paranoid Ferret Productions have a good introduction on how to build one of the most useful of components, a DataGrid, Flex-style.

If you’re feeling adventurous after going through their first tutorial, then just head on over to part 2 of their DataGrid series where they enhance the DataGrid using images and advanced styles.

If you’d like specific topics to covered, please let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

not too bad, however as usual, a demo with 5 items is absolutely not realistic. They could show how bloated it is with over 500 items, just to know if it worth the time to experiment at all.

I am an Adobe Flex fan, so I have found this most useful.

New to utilizing Ajax and Javascript. Currently using DreamWeaver CS3 to help build a coupon oriented website. Can anyone point me in the right direction concerning “clip” functionality (in which coupons can be clipped from various pages then assembled into a print sheet for printing only selected coupons)? The coupon consists of a container for the image and a separate container for text that can be edited in DW. Thanks. mp
