View Full Version : Error: record.join is not a function

28 Jun 2011, 6:18 AM
Hello all -

I am trying to implement a simple JSON store that I can update on the fly. Below is my prototype. It does not work, instead I get the error "record.join is not a function". Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks very much in advance.

var fruits = new Ext.data.JsonStore({
root: 'fruits',
autoLoad: true,
fields: ['name', 'classification']

var apple = {fruits: {'name': 'apple', 'classification': 'fruit'}};

Read the documentation. The add() method takes an array of records, not a block of data. Use loadData() instead.

Thanks, @skirtle.

Follow-up question:

If I loadData(a) and then loadData(b), the store now contains just b. Is there a way to sequentially load a and then b and have the store contain both records?

Thanks very much for your time.

Read the documentation for loadData, it has a 2nd parameter you will find useful.

Hi ,
first time posting.

I'm also getting the same error while using the loadData() method:
<ext namesspace>.dstore.loadData(newData, false);

newData =

any ideas?

thank you.

Please enclose code in code tags (# button on the editor toolbar).

I don't see anything obvious wrong with what you're doing. Could you post the config for the store/reader? The stacktrace would also be useful, either from Firebug or the Chrome console.
