I have read the "How To Post an Extension" wiki page and there is a line that says:

"Once you have added your extension project page, place a link on the Ext Extensions page."

however there is no explanation as to how one actually creates/adds a project page. Perhaps I am blind but I've looked and looked and I cannot see how to create a project page.

I'm ok with "place a link on the Ext Extensions page" as I can see that you simply edit the wiki itself.

If anyone could shed some light I would be most grateful.

The extension I will be adding is a Calculator which would typically be used with a Ext.form.NumberField (much like the DateField calendar popup).

You can add link to non-yet-existing page to the extensions list page such as http://extjs.com/learn/Extension:Calculator and save the list.

The link will be red and when you click it the wiki editor appears.

Hope this helps.

PS: Have you thought about putting your calculator into InfoPanel to create "a desktop tool"?

Thank Saki.

And as for putting the calculator into your InfoPanel ... i'll look into that sort of thing once it's complete however I believe I've designed it in such a way that it will simply drop into any Ext container/layer.

Sure, but there can be some slight tweaks to be done or css adjustments (infamous IE zoom:1), etc. I believe that ready made Ext.ux.InfoPanel.Calculator would come handy for many users.

Then I proudly put it on my demo page ;)

I figured there probably would be some issues that I've not yet found. Once I've put it on the user extensions wiki I'll ask for peoples comments, changes etc.

Had a look at that. The calculator I'm writing will initially be fairly simple as this is the requirement for the application I'm working on. Eventually I would like to add the scientific functions together with memory set/recall etc. I envisage these being configuration options in later versions.

Thanks for your help and interest.

Cheers
