View Full Version : Extend a window from a FormPanel instead of Panel

4 Sep 2013, 12:07 PM
Ext.Window is currently extended from a standard Ext.Panel. I would like to extend the Ext.FormPanel features into a window. I'm wondering if there is any simple way to do this.

I've attempted a few things using Ext.extend, thinking this would simply overwrite the methods. I'm apparently wrong.

The closest seemed to be this:
var formPanelWindow = Ext.extend(Ext.FormPanel, Ext.Window.prototype) //Not using prototype didn't work.

However, this also somehow overrides the Ext.Window.

So, is there any way to get FormPanel feature extended into an new class based on Ext.Window

You could copy the source for Window, give Ext.Window a new name of Ext.FormWindow, and have it extend FormPanel instead of Panel.

Though, I suspect if it were me I'd just have a Window with a single Child item of FormPanel in a fit layout and be done.

Thanks for the input. I just thought there might be some easy workaround to do this. I figured the standard way was simply a FormPanel inside a Window.. but was hoping to save a little DOM work.. and some cleverness!
