    Question Forms and custom ServerProxy (DNode instead of ExtDirect) - not working

    Hi there,

    I'm porting an application over from ExtJS3 at the moment, and with this application we have heavy use of NodeJS + DNode for client/server communication, instead of Ajax/REST or Direct implementations.

    I've implemented our DNodeProxy for ExtJS4, but so far cannot get it to work. It seems that with ExtJS4 forms, if I add an `api` member, and call submit - it assumes it's a 'directsubmit':

    submit: function(options) {
            return this.doAction(this.standardSubmit ? 'standardsubmit' : this.api ? 'directsubmit' : 'submit', options);
    However this worked in ExtJS3 for us fine. From what I can tell with form, you cannot currently override what proxy the form uses, and will always try to default to with this.

    Calling it just throws a 'uncaught exception: No URL specified'

    The code for the proxy so far is [autogenerated from coffeescript, the bind function allows easier scope passing]:

    (function() {
      var __bind = function(fn, me){ return function(){ return fn.apply(me, arguments); }; };
      Ext.define('', {
        extend: '',
        alias: 'proxy.dnode',
        requires: ['Ext.util.MixedCollection'],
        DNodeFN: void 0,
        constructor: function(config) {
          Ext.apply(this, config);
          return this.callParent(arguments);
        doRequest: function(operation, callback, scope) {
          var args, fn, params, request, writer;
          writer = this.getWriter();
          request = this.buildRequest(operation, callback, scope);
          fn = this.api[request.action] || this.DNodeFN;
          args = [];
          params = request.params;
          if (!fn) {
            throw 'No DNode function specified for this proxy';
          if (operation.allowWrite()) {
            request = writer.write(request);
          if (operation.action === 'read') {
          } else {
          Ext.apply(request, {
            args: args,
            directFn: fn
          args.push(this.createRequestCallback(request, operation, callback, scope), this);
          return fn.apply(window, args);
        createRequestCallback: function(request, operation, callback, scope) {
          return __bind(function(data, event) {
            return this.processResponse(event.status, operation, request, data, callback, scope);
          }, this);
        buildUrl: function() {
          return '';
    An example form using this would be:

    (function() {
      var __bind = function(fn, me){ return function(){ return fn.apply(me, arguments); }; };
      Ext.define('Quartermaster.components.user.FormLogin', {
        extend: 'Ext.form.FormPanel',
        alias: 'Quartermaster.FormLogin',
        initComponent: function() {
          Ext.apply(this, {
            frame: true,
            defaultType: 'textfield',
            defaults: {
              anchor: '100%'
            proxy: 'proxy.dnode',
            api: {
              submit: Quartermaster.remote.userLogin
            dockedItems: [
                dock: 'bottom',
                xtype: 'toolbar',
                ui: 'footer',
                items: [
                  '->', {
                    text: 'Login',
                    iconCls: 'icon-door_in',
                    handler: __bind(function() {
                      return this.getForm().submit();
                      form = @getForm()
                      if form.isValid()
                          @el.mask 'Please wait...Logging In'
                          Quartermaster.remote.userLogin form.getValues(), (error, response) =>
                              if error
                                      title: 'Login Error'
                                      msg: error.message
                                      buttons: Ext.Msg.OK
                                      icon: Ext.Msg.ERROR
                                  Quartermaster.session = response
                                  @fireEvent 'login_success'
                    }, this)
            items: [
                fieldLabel: 'Client Name',
                name: 'clientname',
                allowBlank: false,
              }, {
                fieldLabel: 'Username',
                name: 'username',
                allowBlank: false,
              }, {
                fieldLabel: 'Password',
                name: 'password',
                allowBlank: false,
                inputType: 'password',
          return this.callParent(arguments);
    As you can see, there is commented code for the code that does work by manually calling the RPC method attached to the application, and is what we are expecting the DNodeProxy stuff to do on the whole.

    Any help on getting this implemented with ExtJS4 would be much appreciated.

    As an update, I've implemented the following DNodeProxy below. This works absolutly fine on stores/grid's, I can load and save stuff fine there, but on forms still has issues binding to it and executing either via api or DNodeFN:

    Ext.define '',
        extend: ''
        alias: 'proxy.dnode'
        requires: ['Ext.util.MixedCollection']
        DNodeFN: undefined
        constructor: (config) ->
            Ext.apply @, config
            @callParent arguments
        doRequest: (operation, callback, scope) ->
            writer = @getWriter()
            request = @buildRequest operation, callback, scope
            console.log request
            fn = @api[request.action] or @DNodeFN
            args = []
            params = request.params
            if not fn
                throw 'No DNode function specified for this proxy';
            if operation.allowWrite()
                request = writer.write request
            if operation.action is 'read'
                args.push params
                args.push request.jsonData
            # Add each className to the request
            Ext.apply request,
                args: args
                DNodeFN: fn
            args.push @createRequestCallback(request, operation, callback, scope), @
            fn.apply window, args;
        createRequestCallback:  (request, operation, callback, scope) ->
            return (error, response) =>
                if error
                    @processResponse no, operation, request, error, callback, scope
                    @processResponse yes, operation, request, response, callback, scope
            return (data, event) =>
                @processResponse event.status, operation, request, data, callback, scope
        # This is required to prevent an error in the parent
        buildUrl: -> ''
