View Full Version : Possible bug in Ext.View

19 Feb 2007, 12:37 PM
I used the following code to create a View that I could update with JSON data.

var Root = Ext.data.Record.create([
{name: 'refId', mapping: 'refId'},
{name: 'displayType', mapping: 'displayType'},
{name: 'systemName', mapping: 'systemName'},
{name: 'title', mapping: 'title'},
{name: 'parentKeyName', mapping: 'parentKeyName'},
{name: 'urlArgs', mapping: 'urlArgs'},
{name: 'cls', mapping: 'cls'}
var sectionReader = new Ext.data.JsonReader({
root: 'root',
id: 'refId'
}, Root);
var sectionDS = new Ext.data.Store({
proxy: new Ext.data.MemoryProxy(),
reader: sectionReader
var tplSection = new Ext.Template( '<div class="{cls}" id="{refId}" name="{systemName}" type="{displayType}" display="{title}" title=">>Load {title} Menu" key="{parentKeyName}" args="{urlArgs}">{title}</div>' );
// initialize the Section View
var sectionView = new Ext.View('myview', tplSection,
store: sectionDS,
singleSelect: true,
selectedClass: 'list-row-selected',
emptyText: 'Unable to load menu roots'

I was trying to update a Ext.View by manually reading JSON records into the view's store and refreshing the view using the following code.

var records = sectionView.store.reader.readRecords({'root': someJSONData});
sectionView.store.loadRecords(records, {add: true}, true);

The code would execute but the view was never refreshed. After digging into the debug code, I found that the following existed at line 9079:

refresh : function(){
var t = this.tpl;
var html = [];
var records = this.store.getRange();
if(records.length < 1){
for(var i = 0, len = records.length; i < len; i++){
var data = this.prepareData(records[i].data, i, r);
html[html.length] = tpl.apply(data);
this.nodes = this.el.dom.childNodes;

this.prepareData uses an argument r that doesn't appear to exist.

tpl.apply(data) should either be this.tpl.apply(data) or t.apply(data)

After making those changes, the view refreshed as expected.

Thank you. I have made those changes.

Btw, the store API does have some functions other than loadRecords (add, insert) that may be more appropriate. loadRecords may be a private function for the release.
