View Full Version : Having Problem with Ext.tree.TreeSorter after update to Ext 3.3

15 Nov 2010, 10:55 AM
Can someone tell me if something has changed with the "sortType" for an Ext.tree.TreeSorter with ExtJs 3.3.0? Below is my code I had that worked fine prior to updating to v3.3.0 but now it doesn't find .attributes.priority, doesn't even find .attributes. When I inspect "node" now it is just a string representing the text of the node and thats it. Prior to update "node" was an object that had properties that could be accessed. Am I missing something, has something changed? Thanks for your input.

// Sorter used to sort the nodes in the tree
this._sorter = new Ext.tree.TreeSorter(this, {
dir: "asc", // Direction will be ascending order
sortType: function(node) {
// Sorting will be based on the priority
return parseInt(node.attributes.priority, 10);

My component extends Ext.tree.TreePanel and the code above is called in the afterRender of the tree component.

Was able to resolve the problem by adding the property and folderSort config options to my treeSorter. However, my property was an integer and apparently treeSorter expects a string so I had to go through my code and convert my value to a string. This was a pain. Does anyone know if it is going to be changed back to passing the node or will the sorter accepts an integer value? Thanks for any input.
