View Full Version : Clearing the combobox lastQuery

5 May 2009, 11:15 PM

I am looking for a correct way to force the combobox to reload it's content. Imaging a combobox present on a form displaying a (limited) number of items. The trigger action is set to retrieve all items from the server.

However, when I do click on the trigger field all items are loaded and the lastQuery property is set to "". Now I modify the items (add or remove one) with another function on that form and I need to update the combobox items. How can i force to do this, the doQuery(String, boolean) methods aborts if the lastQuery has not been changed.

I almost consider this to be a bug, but maybe there is a good workaround for this. Can the GXT team provide a solution to force the doQuery(String, boolean) to reload the contents even when the lastQuery property has not been changed.

Help would be appreciated.

I am using 2.0.1 and also seek a solution to this.

Unfortunately lastQuery is private so cannot manipulate it directly. The work around i am using is performing a very unlikley query (.doQuery("78234hjasdfhacv78seghfa89734ufwe9", true)) at the time its values are known to change - but I don't like that much.

you have an full working code sample so someone can fast start with copy and paste to digg in your special problem?

We changed lastQuery to be protected. You can clear it so easily in a subclass. For now you will need to use JSNI to access private stuff.
