Subject Re: [Royale] DataGrid default configuration proposal
Date Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:10:25 GMT
I'm not sure; it is a good question. I will have to experiment.

The DataGridModel works with ArrayList now. What I would do is change it
to work with Array and then make a new model for the ArrayList or
ICollectionView, which to me, is a better choice over ArrayList since its
an interface and more adaptable.
