View Full Version : Beginners Grid Question

27 Jun 2010, 7:24 PM
I'm reading the book 'Learning Ext JS' - which is an excellent book. (written before ExtJS 3 came out)

Chapter 5 talks about grids.
The setup isn't that bad, but it does involve manual setup work.

I would like to write some ad-hoc queries and have them render as nice sortable grids with the minimal amount of code required as I work out the queries.

My queries already return JSON formatted data - is there a quick way I can have the grid render itself based only on the JSON results without needing me to define the data store, columns etc?

There are user extension that can do that, e.g. this one (http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?76406-jsonStore-gt-panel.items&p=371353#post371353) (but there are also ones that guess the fields and columns based on the data).
