Pure AS3 Data paging with Robotlegs

This is not a specific Robotlegs question so sorry for the general request.

I have a Flash Datagrid component being populated by data from Robotlegs services. However as the datagrid needs to show more and more rows of info I need to implement a way of loading the data as it is needed. Ideally this will be as the user scrolls down the list, I have seen this in Flex examples but I could do with a pure AS3 solution. Does anyone have any guidance or ideas how to approach this?

Here is the Flex example: http://www.jamesward.com/2010/10/11/data-paging-in-flex-4/

Any guidance would be appreciated.

    It seems no one knows how to solve this for a Flash DataGrid. Have you tried to ask your question on stackoverflow?

    I’m using Flex DataGrid components and the old fashioned way of paging data: loading sets of data and using page numbers, next, and previous buttons to navigate or to load data on demand.

    Not much help, I'm afraid..

    Hi Ondina,

    Thanks for the advice.. I have now posted a question on stackoverflow. If all else fails I may just use page numbers and the standard Flash DataGrid but ideally I could find an elegant solution where the data is loaded as the user scrolls.

    Thanks again,
