View Full Version : Problem entering custom property

6 Mar 2012, 3:58 AM
The TreeStore root node configuration is not exposed in the designer so I've been adding it as a custom property.

root: {text: 'Name', id:'', expanded:false}

Now I want to assign the 'id' property of the root node with the value of the global variable 'Ext.Photos.rootNode':

root: {text: 'Name', id:Ext.Photos.rootNode, expanded:false}

However the designer then treats the whole value as a string:

root: '{text: "Name", id:Ext.Photos.rootNode, expanded:false}'

It seems there are restrictions around the use of variables in custom properties:

Ext.Photos (OK)
Ext.rootNode (OK)
Ext.Photos.rootNode (not OK)
Photos.rootNode (not OK)

Anything starting with 'Ext' is OK anything else causes the property to be converted to a string
Only one level of object is allowed.

Is this intended?

We don't yet support variables. They will be treated as strings.
