GetDataOfIndex is defined in the data grid itself (the behavior
assigned to the data grid group to be exact) so calling GetDataOfIndex
from a location that doesn't have the data grid in the message path
won't work. In your example where you perform the loop outside of the
data grid group itself you need to change the code a bit. You could
possibly use 'call' but I think it is cleaner to use the dgDataOfIndex
repeat for each item theIndex in the dgIndexes of group "data grid 1"
of card "data grid card"
put the dgDataOfIndex[theIndex] of group "data grid 1" of card
"data grid card" into theDataA
if theDataA["col 2"] is not empty then
However, what I would do if it were me is add the FilterMe command to
the data grid group script and then trigger it from the menu button
send "FilterMe" to group "DataGrid 1"
