View Full Version : Grid and XML in IE and Firefox

28 May 2007, 3:44 AM
I have a grid getting it's data as ajax result.responseXML when the page is being loaded.
In firefox - the grid looks great with all the information whereas in IE i get an empty grid.
the data is being loaded as

when the XML is being loaded as a file by:

var ds = new Ext.data.Store({
proxy: new Ext.data.HttpProxy({
url: '/site/ext/demo3.xml' // a real xml file
reader: new Ext.data.XmlReader({
record: 'entries',
id: 'value > id'
}, [{name: 'owner', mapping: 'value > owner'},
'status', 'description', 'client'
ds.load({params:{start: paging.cursor, limit: paging.pageSize}});
- the XML is being loaded to the IE just fine.
any ideas?

You can't page a static file.

The "start" and "limit" parameters mean "start from row n", and "only pass back n rows". Unless you wrap that file with a servlet/script than can do that for you, you will not be able to page it.

So you will not be able to have a PagingToolbar.

So just use

but how you attach the the responseXml to the data source?

you don't. That's the whole point! The Store is handed the DataProxy object and the Reader, and it loads itself.

i think you didn't understand my problem, but thanks a lot for replying!

the problem was that the response header was missing the 'content-type: text/xml'.
it seems like a familiar issue of ajax in IE against other browsers.

"how you attach the the responseXml to the data source?"

I thought that was your problem.
