Subject Re: AW: how to updateDisplayList() in custom headerRenderer? (help!)
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2014 20:06:21 GMT
Thanks Olaf, 

I tried to implement by making a public bindable variable "myCondition" in the header renderer
and then binding it to the TextInput text property (e.g. <s:TextInput text="{myCondition}".../>).

but I get the same results -- the variable myCondition is correctly transferred to the header
renderer the FIRST time it is created, but after that, changes to variable myCondition in
the main application do not show up in the header. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

If your question is "How to pass additional data to an item renderer" this could work for
(Take a look at the links to understand how it works) 

* Pass additional data to a Renderer 
* @see http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/mx/core/ClassFactory.html

* @see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/528796/flex-sending-a-parameter-to-a-custom-itemrenderer

public static function createHeaderRenderer (renderer:Class, myCondition:Number):IFactory

var factory:ClassFactory = new ClassFactory(renderer); 
factory.properties = { myCondition: myCondition }; 
return factory; 

<s:GridColumn headerRenderer="{createHeaderRenderer(MyHeaderRenderer, myCondition)}"/>

Betreff: Re: how to updateDisplayList() in custom headerRenderer? (help!) 

Hello again, I haven't got any response and was just hoping I could entice someone to review
my question below. 

The code implements a textbook method to update the client model when someone changes the
text in a spark TextInput located in a header renderer. This works fine. I just need to know
a textbook method to go the other direction -- that is, how to programmatically update the
text in the TextInput? I'm sure there's some standard way to do this, but I can't figure it
out. Any hints much appreciated. I've tried to copy all the relevant code below.

Subject: how to updateDisplayList() in custom headerRenderer? 

I'm using 4.12 SDK and trying to update a headerRenderer that includes a TextInput. Things
works fine when the component is initialized. But thereafter, when I change the model such
that the text showing in the TextInput box should change, the text doesn't change. 

Can someone help me figure out how to programmatically refresh the header renderer TextInput
text using function updateCondition() in file MyView.mxml below? 

I've tried create a temp IFactory for the header renderer, null the original one, then save
the temp back to the original, but this didn't work. Also tried invalidateDisplayList() on
myGrid (didn't work either). 

Here's MyHeaderRenderer.mxml: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 

import mx.collections.ArrayCollection; 
import com.example.views.components.MyGrid; 

public function ti_focusOut():void { 
MyGrid(this.owner['parentDocument']).dispatchEvent(new Event("myConditionChanged")); } 

override protected function updateDisplayList(unscaledWidth:Number, unscaledHeight:Number):void
{ if (this.owner['parentDocument'] && ti && MyGrid(this.owner['parentDocument']).myCondition)
{ ti.text=String(MyGrid(this.owner['parentDocument']).myCondition); 
<s:State name="normal"/> 
<s:TextInput id="ti" width="40" focusOut="ti_focusOut();"/> </s:GridItemRenderer>

and here's MyGrid.mxml: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 
<s:Group xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" 

[Event(name="myConditionChanged", type="flash.events.Event")] </fx:Metadata> 

[Bindable] private var _myCondition:Number; public function set myCondition(value:Number):void
{ _myCondition=value; if (grid.columnHeaderGroup) { grid.columnHeaderGroup.layout.clearVirtualLayoutCache();

[Bindable] public function get myCondition():Number { return _myCondition; } ... 

<s:DataGrid id="grid"> 
<s:GridColumn .../> 
<s:GridColumn id="myColumn" dataField="myCond" headerRenderer="com.example.views.itemRenderers.MyHeaderRenderer"/>

<s:GridColumn .../> 

and finally, here is MyView.mxml: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 
<views:View xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" 
private function updateCondition():void { myGrid.myCondition=newValue; // how to force refresh
of TextInput in header renderer with newValue? 
private function onChange():void { 
<components:MyGrid id="myGrid" myConditionChanged="onChange();"/>
