We’re using the FlexGrid to display complex data sets that the user can sort by clicking the column headers. In the past, we’ve used the CollectionView to indirectly initialize the grid to the user’s previous session state, including the state of the sorted column. However, we had to stop using the CollectionView due to performance reasons.
My question is whether or not there’s any way to initialize the FlexGrid to the previous sort state on startup? I don’t see anything in the interface for achieving this without using a CollectionView. I thought of trying to fire a click event at the column header to simulate the user sorting the column, but I don’t see a click event on the Column interface. Do you have any suggestions for setting the column sort state?
