View Full Version : Lazy Loading Classes to execute static methods

28 Jan 2012, 1:55 PM
Hi all,
I have a class created using the Extjs class system. It has mostly static methods. Due to the naming convention,

Ext.create('App.ux.Contract') correctly loads the file.

However, if I want to call the static methods (without creating an instance), is there an extjs type of code for doing this.

App.ux.Contract.requires(value>20,"The value must be greater than 20")

At the moment, I'll creating an object instance just to make sure that it is loaded.

You either need to use Ext.require before onReady:


or add the static class to the requires config of the class that uses it:

Ext.define('SomeClass', {
requires: ['App.ux.Contract'],

There are other variations on this theme but I suspect these two are the most likely to be of use to you.

That works well. Looks like I have to load it but wont be creating an instance just to.
