View Full Version : No place for userAlias or userClassName

3 May 2012, 4:46 AM
Hello all,
Complete noobie to Sencha Architect here. I am going through the "Build Your First Mobile App" tutorial and I am stuck on the second step.

First step is to add a "Main navigation view" and to set the userAlias and userClassName. I have done this. The second step is to add a container to the nav view and set the userAlias and userClassName. However, I don't have the option to add these to the newly added container. All I have under the "Architect" section is "Events". userAlias and userClassName are not options like they are when I added the main navigation view.

I'm sure I'm missing something simple. Just not sure what it is. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Keep in mind, the child container is part of it's parent container and as such does not need properties such as class or alias to that class. Just set the child container's id or itemId property if you need to find that specific component later on via componentQuery (i.e. down, up etc..)

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the quick reply, BostonMerlin. I will do that. I was just worried that I was missing something since the tutorial said to set the userAlias and userClassName on that container and I could not.


UPDATE: I just realized I was not following the instructions correctly. The container needed to be added as a top level item. When I did that, I was able to set the userAlias and userClassName.
