   Based on your description above, it should be possible.  I want to point out that having
any "multi-type" APIs is not recommended when using strongly-typed languages, so having a
property that takes either a String or a Function is not a best practice.
   Also, for folks coming from the Flex world, having an attribute named "itemClick" that
isn't an event handler will also be unexpected and cause confusion.
   So, you have some choices:
   1) to exactly reproduce your multi-type API, you would define:
      public var itemClick:Object;
   The problem with doing this is that:
   A) folks could pass a Number and the compiler will not care
   B) If folks pass a method, the compiler will not know to convert it to a closure (bind
   2) You could define 2 properties:
     public var itemClick:Function;
     public var itemClickFunctionName:String;
   Users would assign one or the other.  The compiler will generate closures for methods assigned
to itemClick because it is now of type Function.
   3) Wrap the grid and have it dispatch an Event.
   This will make it work just like Flex.  The Grid won't have to callback anything per-se.
 The wrapping code would always assign itemClick to some function that dispatches an Event.
 I would recommend this pattern.
   I'm not sure I understand your second question.  If you are asking how to make your JS
component available in MXML, the answer is that MXML is oriented towards getter/setters (which
map to Object.defineProperties() in JS). So the dataProvider setter would call your setDataProvider
