View Full Version : Submit form with both display and value fields of Combobox

3 Dec 2009, 8:01 AM
When I submit the form or use getValues, I would like to have the form to retain both the displayField and valueField in the combobox.

My solution is creating a hidden field , listen to combobox's change event and set the value.

Is there a more elegant solution?

Thanks in advance.

I don't see the reason why you would need to retain both, it would defeat the purpose of valueField.

I have only seen one or the other. In fact, you can specify the hiddenName and hiddenValue to use the valueField instead of the displayField as the return in getValues.

My form never really submits anything. I just get the values and reload a grid with those params.

When I use the History to repopulate the forms, the setValues does not neccessarily execute after the combo store load. AND I really don't want to load the stores for all the comoboboxes.

So if I can get both values , I could just add a single record to the store for the combobox to display the 'displayField' instead of the 'valueField'.
