View Full Version : Inconsistent Ajax request return behavior

17 Jul 2009, 6:56 AM
I'm not sure what's going on, but it seems in some instances, the Ext.Ajax.request returns an object. In other instances, it returns a number. This is wrecking havoc on the ability to successfully cancel a currently running request. According to the docs, it should return a number representing the transaction id. I can't quite figure out what is causing it to act this way. I'm trying to isolate the issue, but my app is rather large, but I can tell you that in each case, it is being called exactly the same way. Has anyone experienced this? Can someone shed some light on this?

what do you mean by it 'Returns'? Can you elaborate on how you're setting your requests up?

According to the docs, calling Ext.Ajax.request() should return a transaction id. However, as indicated previously, it doesn't always seem to be a transaction id, rather, it is an object, where I have to get object.tId to get the actual transaction id. I got this hint from another post. But again, it seems like it flips back and forth between an integer value and an object. The way I have it setup is:

var req = Ext.Ajax.request({

sometimes req is an integer value and sometimes it is an object. I don't understand why.

It returns a transaction Id, unless you pass a callback fn config in your request call. Then it returns whatever your callback returned.
