Flex them Grids! (AdvancedDataGrid as a subgrid with flat data)A grid inside a grid is a common requirement; I thought. Yet, I scoured the internet for a solution and I couldn’t find it anywhere (…at least not something that could be done with “flat data”). The following is something I wanted to achieve.
Adobe LiveDocs show an example here http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flex/using/WS2db454920e96a9e51e63e3d11c0bf69084-7bf2.html where they put a chart in an itemrenderer. However they show this example with “Hierarchical” collection. Their data structure looks like:
However, this is almost never how one would get data from the server. We generally get a flat data-structure as ArrayCollection. The the trick would be to convert this flat structure into a Hierarchy of objects.
