Hello !

I have a grid.

gridProducts = new Ext.grid.GridPanel({
store: jsonStoreProducts,
autoHeight: true,
stripeRows: true,
width: 550,
loadMask: true,
columnLines: true,
id: 'productsGrid',

and i load data from my server in the grid.


In same situation i have no data and
i will send a message to the user.

Ext.messageBox.alert('no data');

I there a simple way to send a message ?

Sorry for my bad english.

In the store's load event, do store.getTotalCount().
This will give you the number of records loaded.
If it is 0, show the alert .

Thanks for the answer. I want to publish a message,
that is created on the server. The show with the message to

Ext.messageBox.alert (myServerMessage) done.

Can I store.load () represent a message?

Sincerely yours

You mean in 1 operation you want to load records and get a message from the server side?
That is not possible but you can do this.
1. Load data
2. In the load event, do a Ext.Ajax.request that will get the message from the server
3. On success event , show the alert with the message

I your server side code, you could always check if you're returning zero records, and if so - return an additional message in the response to be used in your pop up message.

This way, you only need one request.
