text="Apache Flex DataGroups support virtualization. Virtualization is an optimization for layout and rendering
that reduces the footprint and startup time for containers with large numbers of items. This sample shows how
virtualization can be achieved by only creating enough objects for the items currently being displayed. The
useVirtualLayout property should be set on the layout object to achieve virtualization."/>
