View Full Version : Dynamically adding row to a grid not working.

21 Oct 2010, 9:04 PM
Hi I have a code where I call Json data into a grid and the grid is filling up and has pagination and all that stuff...

now what I wanted to do was after all that is done add another record manually.. so lets say after the json data is loaded into the grid I add something else manually but for some reason this is not working.

I used the following code for the manually adding

var u = new userGrid.store.recordType({
name: '',
lname: '',
username : ''


the only thing that i see that happens here is the blank row is created but after the json data is loaded the blank row is not there any more.

is there a way to do this?

I guess I should have searched better before asking.
I found the answer.

makes any data append to the current store. in case anyone has this question in the future.

Alternatively you could insert the empty row after the store has finished loading.

I see.. but I ran into a problem and I want to know if there is something that could be done about it.

I am using restful and whenever I add the new row it makes a call to the server to create the new record, but the record is empty. is there a way I could tell rest not to send the create method until a save btn is clicked?

I was trying batch but that doesn't work with rest.

You could configure the store with autoSave:false and call save() yourself.

Alternatively you could configure some fields with allowBlank:false so the store won't save the record until it is valid.
