View Full Version : Grid not paging

28 Apr 2010, 12:28 PM

I'm pretty new to Ext JS, but so far I'm having a great experience using it.

I think there is something wrong with my store.

SalesDataStore = new Ext.data.Store({
id: 'SalesDataStore',
proxy: new Ext.data.HttpProxy({
url: '/controllers/sales.php',
method: 'POST'
baseParams:{action: "list", sd: "{/literal}{$sd}{literal}" },
reader: new Ext.data.JsonReader({
// we tell the datastore where to get his data from
root: 'results',
totalProperty: 'total',
id: 'id'
{name: 'orders_id', type: 'int', mapping: 'orders_id'},
{name: 'order_total', type: 'float', mapping: 'order_total'},
{name: 'customers_company', type: 'string', mapping: 'customers_company'}
sortInfo:{field: 'orders_id', direction: "DESC"}

This is the code for my grid

SalesListingEditorGrid = new Ext.grid.GridPanel({
id: 'SalesListingEditorGrid',
store: SalesDataStore, // the datastore is defined here
cm: SalesColumnModel, // the columnmodel is defined here
title: 'Sales orders',
selModel: new Ext.grid.RowSelectionModel(
listeners: {
rowselect: function(sm, row, rec) {
addTab('Order #' + rec.data.orders_id, '/controllers/sales.php?sd={/literal}{$sd}{literal}&action=edit&oID=' + rec.data.orders_id);
// paging bar on the bottom
bbar: new Ext.PagingToolbar({
pageSize: 10,
store: SalesDataStore,
displayInfo: true,
emptyMsg: "No sales to display"

And the loading of data

SalesDataStore.load({params:{start:0, limit:10}}); // Load the data

The file sales.php returns 283 rows which are being displayed all at once.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards.


And oh, of course the store which is calling /controllers/sales.php posts vars named "start" + "end". I can use it in my query of course, then the paging will work good. But then sorting by the grid is not possible...

Yes, paging causes unexpected sorting behavior, or rather sorts the paged data rather than the whole dataset. You just need set remoteSort: true on your store. Then include the sort field in your query as well.
