View Full Version : Deleting from Grid Store or Ajax Request + reload store?

20 Dec 2010, 7:31 AM
I am confused as to whether or not I should delete from the store and perform an Ajax request to the database, or to just do the Ajax request, then reload the store. In the code below I am building an array which I can pass to the Ajax request, and I am also removing from the store directly. I know I probably shouldn't be doing it this way, but I can't find any resources to point me in the right direction.

handler: function(){
var s = portGrid.getSelectionModel().getSelections();
var arr = [];
for(var i = 0, r; r = s[i]; i++){
// Build an array to pass to the Ajax request
arr[i] = r.data.port_id;

// Delete from the store

If you have a writer on the store it can handle the ajax for all the CRUD events. With a writer your delete code would simply need to be.

var s = portGrid.getSelectionModel().getSelections();

assuming autoSave is off (not default).

It would then pass a POST parameter (your root) with an array of the field specified as the idProperty.

Tim, thanks for the insight. It looks as though I created my own CRUD API. I am still new to Ext so I didn't know this ability was built in.
