Welcome to part 2 of the series of two articles on the Flex 2 DataGrid component. In part 1 of the article, I showed you how to load content from an external XML document and display it in the DataGrid. We set up the DataGrid structure by specifying the columns and displaying relevant data. In this article, we're going to add word wrapping, format the population number, display an image in one of the columns and add some click functionality.
