View Full Version : Best way to link grid/pagingtoolbar/store

5 Jan 2011, 6:45 AM
Hello all,
I'm looking for a simple way to globally link a pagingtoolbar to it's given grid in my code. For instance, in some places I am doing this:

var grid = new ....;
grid.ptb = pagingtoolbar_obj;

So that elsewhere in the code I can say:


Now, I have many applications with many grids. I have a search object that links together with them as well.
I don't want to have to assign grid.ptb = ptb every time I create one.
Here are some other things I've tried:

globals['grid'].bbar.moveFirst(); // nope
globals['grid'].bbar[0].moveFirst(); // nope

I am of course storing the PagingToolbar in each grid's bbar object. I'm just wondering what methods to access it are available for me, or if there are any alternative approaches I should consider.

Specifying ref:'ptb' in the PagingToolbar config should do that.

Specifying ref:'ptb' in the PagingToolbar config should do that.

var ptb = new Ext.PagingToolbar({
pageSize: parms['pageSize'],
displayInfo: true,
displayMsg: parms['displayMsg'],
emptyMsg: "",
store: userstore,
'ref': '../ptb'

Neither 'ref': 'ptb' nor 'ref': '../ptb' are acting as expected. Am I totally missing something obvious here?

I should mention -- this really isn't that big of a deal for me -- I can workaround this easily using manual assignment. Do you have to create the object within the context of another for 'ref' to work properly?

Hmmm... You're correct, that doesn't work.

But this should:
