View Full Version : ServerProxy URL

23 May 2014, 2:00 PM
I am very confused by an error I am getting with the following XML store:

Ext.define('MyApp.store.UserStore2', {
extend: 'Ext.data.Store',

requires: [

constructor: function(cfg) {
var me = this;
cfg = cfg || {};
model: 'MyApp.model.UserModel',
storeId: 'UserStore2',
proxy: {
type: 'ajax',
url: '',
reader: {
type: 'xml',
record: 'row'
}, cfg)]);

As you can see the proxy has no URL, this is because elsewhere in my app I send an AJAX call which returns an XML document that I place into the store by doing:
store.loadRawData(xmlDocument), so I shouldn't need a URL right?

I have associated this store with a grid panel and it works perfectly, the xml document gets loaded into the store and the records are displayed on the grid with no problems, but then I associate this very same store to a comboBox:

xtype: 'combobox',
itemId: 'categoryTypeField',
width: 405,
fieldLabel: 'Type',
displayField: 'username',
store: 'UserStore2',
valueField: 'username',
listeners: {
select: {
fn: me.onCategoryTypeFieldSelect,
scope: me

and as soon as I click on drop-down I get the following error: Ext.data.proxy.Server.buildUrl(): You are using a ServerProxy but have not supplied it with a url.

and it gets stuck like this:

so clearly the records are getting loaded but then runs into this problem, I don't understand why it's giving me this error here but not with the grid panel, why does it require a URL all of a sudden? can someone please help me with this? it's halted progress with my entire app. If not then maybe some kind of workaround? all I need is to load records from the XML document I get back from the server so I can list them as value for this combo box, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone have an idea on how I may be able to fix this? Please help.

You shouldn't be using an Ajax proxy if you don't intend to do any loading via AJAX through the proxy. You probably just need a Memory proxy.

However, your main problem is you're missing this line on your combobox:

queryMode: 'local'

Without this line the combobox will attempt to load the combobox's store.
