    Default Broken Design View for Custom Formatter

    The Rendering of the design view seems to miss custom code extensions that work fine in the built project. This results in an empty design view in Architect.

    To implement a generic way to handle internationalization, I've created a custom formatter so I can use it as 'bind' in Architect / the ExtJs Code:

    Ext.define('Flex.override.util.Format', {
        override: 'Ext.util.Format',
        constructor: function(){
            return this.callParent(arguments);  
        i18n: function(key){
    Now I can use it like this on any bindable of a component:

      bind: {
        text: "{'myTextKey':i18n}"
    which works fine for the saved / built project. Only Problem is, it seems to destroy the Design view (white page). In Architect, the Log shows the following error:

    Design View Framework Error: Compile Error! Invalid format specified "i18n" (at index 43)

    Is there any way to make Architect aware of the overridden Formatter to get rid of this?

    Hi, I have sent you PM with possible workaround. Unfortunately SA doesn't support this.
