Auto-Scrolling Issue in ADG while drag/drop

As the title suggests, this is an article about the issue that you may encounter while using SDK 3.x  and AdvancedDataGrid.

Unlike other list based components like TileList , DG etc, vertical scroll bar doesnt moves automatically to the last of the  row item while drag/drop onto the ADG. 

This can be an issue when you have a situation [and most of the time , it can be ] when you have only few visible rows and you want to drag and drop a row /item somewhere in that ADG , not necessarily between the current visible set , you expect that Scroll should move till the last row on its own.  In ADG it does not happens , because of one bug which have been already logged here.

https://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FLEXDMV-2471   — if you want to vote/keep a watch on to it.

Workaround is :

Please override the function showDropFeedback and then

change this line
if (collection)
dragScroll();

To

if (collection)
if (dragScrollingInterval == 0)
dragScrollingInterval = setInterval(dragScroll, 15);

Hope this helps somebody facing this issue.

Just to say hi !!!

This is going to be the beginning of sharing of what all I’ve learned so far working with such great people here in Adobe and my career so far …

Wish me luck !!!!!!
