View Full Version : ExtJS vs. HTML widgets

10 Aug 2009, 3:39 PM

I am learning ExtJS and finding it pretty easy to use and understand. There is one thing that puzzles me now: Looking over the widgets set, I notice that some widgets are missing or differently implememented. For instance:

1. HTML link. While I guess you can simply use the HTML one, I wonder who would you do that with the xtype lazy instanciation procedure? Is there an generic HTML element that I can use?

2. The ComboBox element. It seems that once you select one of the option, the dropdown menu will not get display anymore as if the current selection has filtered the set of available options.

3. The listview element seems to be more complex than the HTML select element. Is it really meant to be a replacement or it's actually a different widget?
