View Full Version : Access response from the "save" operation on a Model instance?

18 Oct 2011, 11:47 AM
Hi guys,

Having this:

success: function(record, operation) {
// Here I need to access the response
failure: function(record, operation) {
// Here I need to access the response too

How can I access the response returned from the server? I couldn't find anything in the operation object.

does this help?

success: function(record, action){
this.commit(); //the commit cleans the grid
console.log( Ext.String.format("{0} record: {1}", 'Updated', record.getId()));

or perhaps a listener on your STORE work for you?

extend: 'Ext.data.Store',
listeners: {
write: function(store, operation){
var record = operation.getRecords()[0],
name = Ext.String.capitalize(operation.action),

if (name == 'Destroy') {
record = operation.records[0];
verb = 'Destroyed';
} else {
verb = name + 'd';

if (operation.action != 'create'){
console.log(Ext.String.format("{0} {1} user: {2}",name, verb, record.getId()));

Sorry for the delay, I came back today to this part of my app so now I can try your solution.

The problem is that I need to access the hole response. Suppose my response to a save action is:

{ success: true, msg: 'OK!!', data: {id: 1, nameOfEntity: 'EntityName'}, extraParams: {otherParam: 1234, andAnother: 'Another'}}

I'd like to access "extraParams" or any other parameter from the response. Is this possible?

BTW: One use case I have for this need is that I have to access errors thrown from the server because I couldn't find a way to make my forms be aware of the errors the server throws after POSTing or PUTting data for a record from the form. Which is the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Nevermind, I've found it. I was using v4.0.2 and recently I've updated to v4.0.7. It seems that the operation argument now has a "response" attribute holding the response I was looking for:

success: function(record, operation) {
operation.response // Here it is!

Thanks a lot!

Oops, I didn't want to mark as the best answer that one. My PC is too laggy and when I clicked it did it on the wrong post.

Sorry about that. I don't know if there's a way to change this. If there is, I'll be happy to fix it.
