What's Included

100% of the Flash source code, XML configuration file


Selectively change the background color of any cell.

Multi-line editing, with Word Wrapping. This is probably the most sought-after feature of the Flash datagrid, and which is sorely missing from Macromedia's Datagrid distribution.

Merge headers, change the background color of any given header, and apply HTML formatting to the cell header text, like italic and bold.

Format all data in a given column. For example, apply $ and ".00" formatting to price values in a column. When clicked, the "true" value of the cell is displayed. Nearly any format mask can be used.

Add powerful stylesheet support via external CSS files. This allows even more flexibility to the cell formatting than can be used with the limited HTML support that comes built-in to the datagrid.

The DataGrid Extensions download comes with Flash 6 AND Flash 7 versions. Some features, like CSS support, are only available in the Flash 7 version.

Add powerful event handling to any cell. For example, when clicked, the cell data can be passed to an Actionscript function of your choice.

An advanced API is included for your reference (for Flash 7 extensions). The Flash 6 version comes with a text file that lists all available functions.

Add horizontal scrolling to your datagrid.

Convenient MXP installer is provided (for Flash 7 version only), as well as .fla examples.

100% of the Flash source code is included (Actionscript source files). Thus, if you need to do something which isn't built-in to the datagrid extensions, you may be able to add it yourself, provided that you have a strong knowledge of Actionscript.

Add HTML to any cell by setting the "htmlDrawing" property.
