If you use an XmlListCollection, it will be able to display data hierarchically automatically.
 Else your domain model objects should implement the hierarchical data interface, a data grid
accepts that interface as well.

Subject: Building Class Explorer in Flex


I am trying to build Class (Object Model) Explorer in Flex,
so it would show user Classes within Classes and allow View/Add/Edit/Delete
This is not Flex classes, but kind of ORM system for user data.
So I receive user data as from DB with a row like:
Path (class4.class3.class2) - not like package, but true hierachical data.
Class (Class1 which consists of Attributes (primitives), say Strings, Ints,

Need to build a Tree from that and put it in the 1st ADG column.
I have 1000s of Classes, and it can go 10+ levels deep.

So any idea how to build a tree (HierarchicalData) out of that (true
hierarchical data, not grouping)?
Any code samples?

I created a POC, here is an exerpt of input data for a tree:
public var acClasses:Object = {
  category:"root", children: [
    new PathVO("class4", [
       new PathVO("class3", [
          new PathVO("class2", [
            new ClassVO("Class1", { "Attr1", "Attr2", "Attr3"} )
          ] )
       ] )
     ] )

Please advise!

Thank you in advance,
