View Full Version : Cascading listener events

22 Oct 2010, 7:23 AM
Hi all,

I need some kind of access to an underlying event. In my case I'm populating a combo box with json data, so the JsonStore fires a load event when all data loaded. Now I need any access to this event within my combo itself to set one of the options automatically. How does this work in practice? How to access a JsonStore event within a ComboBox listener?

You need to hook up your own listener to the store in one of the combobox events ('render'?).

Hi Condor,

you mean not to define a listener within the store itself but reference the store's load event in combobox' listener? didnt find any doc about such listener cascades.

The store load event is already hooked up by ComboBox to the onLoad method, so you could also use:

var combo = new Ext.form.ComboBox({
onLoad: function(){
// your code here
this.constructor.prototype.onLoad.apply(this, arguments);

Sorry Condor for these newbie questions but how to reference the store's load event within onLoad? when does onLoad fire exactely? a simple onLoad: function() {console.log("foo")} shows me it reacts on combo clicks but how should the simple console.log be defined to show the message after the combo is populated?
