you are asking alot ..... its like asking ....

I want to make an app...please help me do it....you have to be more specific if you want help. ....

datagrid is easy to use with a little patience and practice and understanding its properties.

start small..learn how to populate grid .... then go from there....

set the dgData of group "MyGrid" to MyArrayWithGriDData

What makeshift said. Though LC is very easy to use, it is still a large and rich environment. You must learn the basics first.

A dataGrid is the most complex object here. What made you choose it for your project? You said you wanted to use it to download audio clips. Did you mean to reference those clips in a nice UI? The clips themselves would likely be stored either in an external file or in a custom property somewhere in your stack. But as you see, I a m already ahead of what you need first to get going.

You don't need a datagrid for this, use a simple list field.

If your audio clips were imported using "import as control" you will not be able to export them. Embedded audio is not easily removed from the stack. Keep the audio clips on disk as separate files. You can copy them easily that way.
