Terms, Icons, and Labels

Many classes have shortcut names used when creating (instantiating) a class with a configuration object. The shortcut name is referred to as an alias (or xtype if the class extends Ext.Component). The alias/xtype is listed next to the class name of applicable classes for quick reference.

Access Levels

Framework classes or their members may be specified as private or protected. Else, the class / member is public. Public, protected, and private are access descriptors used to convey how and when the class or class member should be used.

Member Types

Member Syntax

Below is an example class member that we can disect to show the syntax of a class member (the lookupComponent method as viewed from the Ext.button.Button class in this case).

lookupComponent ( item ) : Ext.Component
protected

Called when a raw config object is added to this container either during initialization of the items config, or when new items are added), or {@link #insert inserted.

This method converts the passed object into an instanced child component.

This may be overridden in subclasses when special processing needs to be applied to child creation.

Parameters

item :  Object

The config object being added.

Returns
Ext.Component

The component to be added.

Let's look at each part of the member row:

Member Flags

The API documentation uses a number of flags to further commnicate the class member's function and intent. The label may be represented by a text label, an abbreviation, or an icon.

Class Icons

- Indicates a framework class

- A singleton framework class. *See the singleton flag for more information

- A component-type framework class (any class within the Ext JS framework that extends Ext.Component)

- Indicates that the class, member, or guide is new in the currently viewed version

Member Icons

- Indicates a class member of type config

- Indicates a class member of type property

- Indicates a class member of type method

- Indicates a class member of type event

- Indicates a class member of type theme variable

- Indicates a class member of type theme mixin

- Indicates that the class, member, or guide is new in the currently viewed version

Class Member Quick-Nav Menu

Just below the class name on an API doc page is a row of buttons corresponding to the types of members owned by the current class. Each button shows a count of members by type (this count is updated as filters are applied). Clicking the button will navigate you to that member section. Hovering over the member-type button will reveal a popup menu of all members of that type for quick navigation.

Getter and Setter Methods

Getting and setter methods that correlate to a class config option will show up in the methods section as well as in the configs section of both the API doc and the member-type menus just beneath the config they work with. The getter and setter method documentation will be found in the config row for easy reference.

History Bar

Your page history is kept in localstorage and displayed (using the available real estate) just below the top title bar. By default, the only search results shown are the pages matching the product / version you're currently viewing. You can expand what is displayed by clicking on the button on the right-hand side of the history bar and choosing the "All" radio option. This will show all recent pages in the history bar for all products / versions.

Within the history config menu you will also see a listing of your recent page visits. The results are filtered by the "Current Product / Version" and "All" radio options. Clicking on the button will clear the history bar as well as the history kept in local storage.

If "All" is selected in the history config menu the checkbox option for "Show product details in the history bar" will be enabled. When checked, the product/version for each historic page will show alongside the page name in the history bar. Hovering the cursor over the page names in the history bar will also show the product/version as a tooltip.

Search and Filters

Both API docs and guides can be searched for using the search field at the top of the page.

On API doc pages there is also a filter input field that filters the member rows using the filter string. In addition to filtering by string you can filter the class members by access level, inheritance, and read only. This is done using the checkboxes at the top of the page.

The checkbox at the bottom of the API class navigation tree filters the class list to include or exclude private classes.

Clicking on an empty search field will show your last 10 searches for quick navigation.

API Doc Class Metadata

Each API doc page (with the exception of Javascript primitives pages) has a menu view of metadata relating to that class. This metadata view will have one or more of the following:

Expanding and Collapsing Examples and Class Members

Runnable examples (Fiddles) are expanded on a page by default. You can collapse and expand example code blocks individually using the arrow on the top-left of the code block. You can also toggle the collapse state of all examples using the toggle button on the top-right of the page. The toggle-all state will be remembered between page loads.

Class members are collapsed on a page by default. You can expand and collapse members using the arrow icon on the left of the member row or globally using the expand / collapse all toggle button top-right.

Desktop -vs- Mobile View

Viewing the docs on narrower screens or browsers will result in a view optimized for a smaller form factor. The primary differences between the desktop and "mobile" view are:

Viewing the Class Source

The class source can be viewed by clicking on the class name at the top of an API doc page. The source for class members can be viewed by clicking on the "view source" link on the right-hand side of the member row.

Ext JS 6.2.1 - Classic Toolkit


top

Summary

The Connection class encapsulates a connection to the page's originating domain, allowing requests to be made either to a configured URL, or to a URL specified at request time.

Requests made by this class are asynchronous, and will return immediately. No data from the server will be available to the statement immediately following the request call. To process returned data, use a success callback in the request options object, or an event listener.

File Uploads

File uploads are not performed using normal "Ajax" techniques, that is they are not performed using XMLHttpRequests. Instead the form is submitted in the standard manner with the DOM <form> element temporarily modified to have its target set to refer to a dynamically generated, hidden <iframe> which is inserted into the document but removed after the return data has been gathered.

The server response is parsed by the browser to create the document for the IFRAME. If the server is using JSON to send the return object, then the Content-Type header must be set to "text/html" in order to tell the browser to insert the text unchanged into the document body.

Characters which are significant to an HTML parser must be sent as HTML entities, so encode < as &lt;, & as &amp; etc.

The response text is retrieved from the document, and a fake XMLHttpRequest object is created containing a responseText property in order to conform to the requirements of event handlers and callbacks.

Be aware that file upload packets are sent with the content type multipart/form and some server technologies (notably JEE) may require some custom processing in order to retrieve parameter names and parameter values from the packet content.

Also note that it's not possible to check the response code of the hidden iframe, so the success handler will ALWAYS fire.

Binary Posts

The class supports posting binary data to the server by using native browser capabilities, or a flash polyfill plugin in browsers that do not support native binary posting (e.g. Internet Explorer version 9 or less). A number of limitations exist when the polyfill is used:

  • Only asynchronous connections are supported.
  • Only the POST method can be used.
  • The return data can only be binary for now. Set the binary parameter to true.
  • Only the 0, 1 and 4 (complete) readyState values will be reported to listeners.
  • The flash object will be injected at the bottom of the document and should be invisible.
  • Important: See note about packaing the flash plugin with the app in the documenetation of Ext.data.flash.BinaryXhr.

listeners : Object

A config object containing one or more event handlers to be added to this object during initialization. This should be a valid listeners config object as specified in the addListener example for attaching multiple handlers at once.

DOM events from Ext JS Ext.Component

While some Ext JS Component classes export selected DOM events (e.g. "click", "mouseover" etc), this is usually only done when extra value can be added. For example the Ext.view.View's itemclick event passing the node clicked on. To access DOM events directly from a child element of a Component, we need to specify the element option to identify the Component property to add a DOM listener to:

new Ext.panel.Panel({
    width: 400,
    height: 200,
    dockedItems: [{
        xtype: 'toolbar'
    }],
    listeners: {
        click: {
            element: 'el', //bind to the underlying el property on the panel
            fn: function(){ console.log('click el'); }
        },
        dblclick: {
            element: 'body', //bind to the underlying body property on the panel
            fn: function(){ console.log('dblclick body'); }
        }
    }
});

setListeners ( listeners )

An alias for addListener. In versions prior to 5.1, listeners had a generated setter which could be called to add listeners. In 5.1 the listeners config is not processed using the config system and has no generated setter, so this method is provided for backward compatibility. The preferred way of adding listeners is to use the on method.

properties

Instance Properties

$className
private pri

Defaults to:

'Ext.Base'

$configPrefixed : Boolean
private pri

The value true causes config values to be stored on instances using a property name prefixed with an underscore ("_") character. A value of false stores config values as properties using their exact name (no prefix).

Defaults to:

true

Available since: 5.0.0

$configStrict : Boolean
private pri

The value true instructs the initConfig method to only honor values for properties declared in the config block of a class. When false, properties that are not declared in a config block will be placed on the instance.

Defaults to:

true

Available since: 5.0.0

$eventOptions
private pri

Matches options property names within a listeners specification object - property names which are never used as event names.

Defaults to:

{
    scope: 1,
    delay: 1,
    buffer: 1,
    onFrame: 1,
    single: 1,
    args: 1,
    destroyable: 1,
    priority: 1,
    order: 1
}

$vetoClearingPrototypeOnDestroy
private pri

We don't want the base destructor to clear the prototype because our destroyObservable handler must be called the very last. It will take care of the prototype after completing Observable destruction sequence.

Defaults to:

true

clearPropertiesOnDestroy : Boolean / "async"
protected pro

Setting this property to false will prevent nulling object references on a Class instance after destruction. Setting this to "async" will delay the clearing for approx 50ms.

Defaults to:

true

Available since: 6.2.0

clearPrototypeOnDestroy : Boolean
private pri

Setting this property to true will result in setting the object's prototype to null after the destruction sequence is fully completed. After that, most attempts at calling methods on the object instance will result in "method not defined" exception. This can be very helpful with tracking down otherwise hard to find bugs like runaway Ajax requests, timed functions not cleared on destruction, etc.

Note that this option can only work in browsers that support Object.setPrototypeOf method, and is only available in debugging mode.

Defaults to:

false

Available since: 6.2.0

destroyed : Boolean
protected pro

This property is set to true after the destroy method is called.

Defaults to:

false

eventsSuspended
private pri

Initial suspended call count. Incremented when suspendEvents is called, decremented when resumeEvents is called.

Defaults to:

0

hasListeners : Object
readonly ro

This object holds a key for any event that has a listener. The listener may be set directly on the instance, or on its class or a super class (via observe) or on the Ext.app.EventBus. The values of this object are truthy (a non-zero number) and falsy (0 or undefined). They do not represent an exact count of listeners. The value for an event is truthy if the event must be fired and is falsy if there is no need to fire the event.

The intended use of this property is to avoid the expense of fireEvent calls when there are no listeners. This can be particularly helpful when one would otherwise have to call fireEvent hundreds or thousands of times. It is used like this:

 if (this.hasListeners.foo) {
     this.fireEvent('foo', this, arg1);
 }

isConfiguring : Boolean
readonly ro protected pro

This property is set to true during the call to initConfig.

Defaults to:

false

Available since: 5.0.0

isFirstInstance : Boolean
readonly ro protected pro

This property is set to true if this instance is the first of its class.

Defaults to:

false

Available since: 5.0.0

isInstance : Boolean
readonly ro protected pro

This value is true and is used to identify plain objects from instances of a defined class.

Defaults to:

true

isObservable : Boolean

true in this class to identify an object as an instantiated Observable, or subclass thereof.

Defaults to:

true

self : Ext.Class
protected pro

Get the reference to the current class from which this object was instantiated. Unlike Ext.Base#statics, this.self is scope-dependent and it's meant to be used for dynamic inheritance. See Ext.Base#statics for a detailed comparison

Ext.define('My.Cat', {
    statics: {
        speciesName: 'Cat' // My.Cat.speciesName = 'Cat'
    },

    constructor: function() {
        alert(this.self.speciesName); // dependent on 'this'
    },

    clone: function() {
        return new this.self();
    }
});


Ext.define('My.SnowLeopard', {
    extend: 'My.Cat',
    statics: {
        speciesName: 'Snow Leopard'         // My.SnowLeopard.speciesName = 'Snow Leopard'
    }
});

var cat = new My.Cat();                     // alerts 'Cat'
var snowLeopard = new My.SnowLeopard();     // alerts 'Snow Leopard'

var clone = snowLeopard.clone();
alert(Ext.getClassName(clone));             // alerts 'My.SnowLeopard'

methods

Instance Methods

_addDeclaredListeners ( listeners ) : Boolean
private pri

Adds declarative listeners as nested arrays of listener objects.

Parameters

listeners :  Array

Returns

:Boolean

true if any listeners were added

abort ( [request] )

Aborts an active request.

Parameters

request :  Ext.ajax.Request (optional)

Defaults to the last request

abortAll

Aborts all active requests

addDeprecations ( deprecations )
private pri

This method applies a versioned, deprecation declaration to this class. This is typically called by the deprecated config.

Parameters

deprecations :  Object

addListener ( eventName, [fn], [scope], [options], [order] ) : Object
chainable ch

The on method is shorthand for addListener.

Appends an event handler to this object. For example:

myGridPanel.on("itemclick", this.onItemClick, this);

The method also allows for a single argument to be passed which is a config object containing properties which specify multiple events. For example:

myGridPanel.on({
    cellclick: this.onCellClick,
    select: this.onSelect,
    viewready: this.onViewReady,
    scope: this // Important. Ensure "this" is correct during handler execution
});

One can also specify options for each event handler separately:

myGridPanel.on({
    cellclick: {fn: this.onCellClick, scope: this, single: true},
    viewready: {fn: panel.onViewReady, scope: panel}
});

Names of methods in a specified scope may also be used:

myGridPanel.on({
    cellclick: {fn: 'onCellClick', scope: this, single: true},
    viewready: {fn: 'onViewReady', scope: panel}
});

Parameters

eventName :  String/Object

The name of the event to listen for. May also be an object who's property names are event names.

fn :  Function/String (optional)

The method the event invokes or the name of the method within the specified scope. Will be called with arguments given to Ext.util.Observable#fireEvent plus the options parameter described below.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed. If omitted, defaults to the object which fired the event.

options :  Object (optional)

An object containing handler configuration.

Note: The options object will also be passed as the last argument to every event handler.

This object may contain any of the following properties:

scope :  Object

The scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed. If omitted, defaults to the object which fired the event.

delay :  Number

The number of milliseconds to delay the invocation of the handler after the event fires.

single :  Boolean

True to add a handler to handle just the next firing of the event, and then remove itself.

buffer :  Number

Causes the handler to be scheduled to run in an Ext.util.DelayedTask delayed by the specified number of milliseconds. If the event fires again within that time, the original handler is not invoked, but the new handler is scheduled in its place.

onFrame :  Number

Causes the handler to be scheduled to run at the next animation frame event. If the event fires again before that time, the handler is not rescheduled - the handler will only be called once when the next animation frame is fired, with the last set of arguments passed.

target :  Ext.util.Observable

Only call the handler if the event was fired on the target Observable, not if the event was bubbled up from a child Observable.

element :  String

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.Component. The name of a Component property which references an Ext.dom.Element to add a listener to.

This option is useful during Component construction to add DOM event listeners to elements of Ext.Component which will exist only after the Component is rendered.

For example, to add a click listener to a Panel's body:

  var panel = new Ext.panel.Panel({
                              title: 'The title',
                              listeners: {
                                  click: this.handlePanelClick,
                                  element: 'body'
                              }
                          });
                        

In order to remove listeners attached using the element, you'll need to reference the element itself as seen below.

 panel.body.un(...)
                        

delegate :  String (optional)

A simple selector to filter the event target or look for a descendant of the target.

The "delegate" option is only available on Ext.dom.Element instances (or when attaching a listener to a Ext.dom.Element via a Component using the element option).

See the delegate example below.

capture :  Boolean (optional)

When set to true, the listener is fired in the capture phase of the event propagation sequence, instead of the default bubble phase.

The capture option is only available on Ext.dom.Element instances (or when attaching a listener to a Ext.dom.Element via a Component using the element option).

stopPropagation :  Boolean (optional)

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.dom.Element. true to call stopPropagation on the event object before firing the handler.

preventDefault :  Boolean (optional)

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.dom.Element. true to call preventDefault on the event object before firing the handler.

stopEvent :  Boolean (optional)

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.dom.Element. true to call stopEvent on the event object before firing the handler.

args :  Array (optional)

Optional set of arguments to pass to the handler function before the actual fired event arguments. For example, if args is set to ['foo', 42], the event handler function will be called with an arguments list like this:

 handler('foo', 42, <actual event arguments>...);
                        

destroyable :  Boolean (optional)

When specified as true, the function returns a destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which removes all listeners added in this call. This syntax can be a helpful shortcut to using un; particularly when removing multiple listeners. NOTE - not compatible when using the element option. See un for the proper syntax for removing listeners added using the element config.

Defaults to:

false

priority :  Number (optional)

An optional numeric priority that determines the order in which event handlers are run. Event handlers with no priority will be run as if they had a priority of 0. Handlers with a higher priority will be prioritized to run sooner than those with a lower priority. Negative numbers can be used to set a priority lower than the default. Internally, the framework uses a range of 1000 or greater, and -1000 or lesser for handlers that are intended to run before or after all others, so it is recommended to stay within the range of -999 to 999 when setting the priority of event handlers in application-level code. A priority must be an integer to be valid. Fractional values are reserved for internal framework use.

order :  String (optional)

A legacy option that is provided for backward compatibility. It is recommended to use the priority option instead. Available options are:

  • 'before': equal to a priority of 100
  • 'current': equal to a priority of 0 or default priority
  • 'after': equal to a priority of -100

Defaults to:

'current'

order :  String (optional)

A shortcut for the order event option. Provided for backward compatibility. Please use the priority event option instead.

Combining Options

Using the options argument, it is possible to combine different types of listeners:

A delayed, one-time listener.

myPanel.on('hide', this.handleClick, this, {
    single: true,
    delay: 100
});

Attaching multiple handlers in 1 call

The method also allows for a single argument to be passed which is a config object containing properties which specify multiple handlers and handler configs.

grid.on({
    itemclick: 'onItemClick',
    itemcontextmenu: grid.onItemContextmenu,
    destroy: {
        fn: function () {
            // function called within the 'altCmp' scope instead of grid
        },
        scope: altCmp // unique scope for the destroy handler
    },
    scope: grid       // default scope - provided for example clarity
});

Delegate

This is a configuration option that you can pass along when registering a handler for an event to assist with event delegation. By setting this configuration option to a simple selector, the target element will be filtered to look for a descendant of the target. For example:

var panel = Ext.create({
    xtype: 'panel',
    renderTo: document.body,
    title: 'Delegate Handler Example',
    frame: true,
    height: 220,
    width: 220,
    html: '<h1 class="myTitle">BODY TITLE</h1>Body content'
});

// The click handler will only be called when the click occurs on the
// delegate: h1.myTitle ("h1" tag with class "myTitle")
panel.on({
    click: function (e) {
        console.log(e.getTarget().innerHTML);
    },
    element: 'body',
    delegate: 'h1.myTitle'
 });

Defaults to: 'current'

Returns

:Object

Only when the destroyable option is specified.

A Destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which removes all listeners added in this call. For example:

this.btnListeners =  = myButton.on({
    destroyable: true
    mouseover:   function() { console.log('mouseover'); },
    mouseout:    function() { console.log('mouseout'); },
    click:       function() { console.log('click'); }
});

And when those listeners need to be removed:

Ext.destroy(this.btnListeners);

or

this.btnListeners.destroy();

addManagedListener ( item, ename, [fn], [scope], [options] ) : Object

The addManagedListener method is used when some object (call it "A") is listening to an event on another observable object ("B") and you want to remove that listener from "B" when "A" is destroyed. This is not an issue when "B" is destroyed because all of its listeners will be removed at that time.

Example:

Ext.define('Foo', {
    extend: 'Ext.Component',

    initComponent: function () {
        this.addManagedListener(MyApp.SomeGlobalSharedMenu, 'show', this.doSomething);
        this.callParent();
    }
});

As you can see, when an instance of Foo is destroyed, it ensures that the 'show' listener on the menu (MyApp.SomeGlobalSharedMenu) is also removed.

As of version 5.1 it is no longer necessary to use this method in most cases because listeners are automatically managed if the scope object provided to addListener is an Observable instance. However, if the observable instance and scope are not the same object you still need to use mon or addManagedListener if you want the listener to be managed.

Parameters

item :  Ext.util.Observable/Ext.dom.Element

The item to which to add a listener/listeners.

ename :  Object/String

The event name, or an object containing event name properties.

fn :  Function/String (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the handler function or the name of a method on the specified scope.

scope :  Object (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed.

options :  Object (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the addListener options.

Returns

:Object

Only when the destroyable option is specified.

A Destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which removes all listeners added in this call. For example:

this.btnListeners = myButton.mon({
    destroyable: true
    mouseover:   function() { console.log('mouseover'); },
    mouseout:    function() { console.log('mouseout'); },
    click:       function() { console.log('click'); }
});

And when those listeners need to be removed:

Ext.destroy(this.btnListeners);

or

this.btnListeners.destroy();

callOverridden ( args ) : Object
deprecated dep protected pro

Call the original method that was previously overridden with Ext.Base#override

Ext.define('My.Cat', {
    constructor: function() {
        alert("I'm a cat!");
    }
});

My.Cat.override({
    constructor: function() {
        alert("I'm going to be a cat!");

        this.callOverridden();

        alert("Meeeeoooowwww");
    }
});

var kitty = new My.Cat(); // alerts "I'm going to be a cat!"
                          // alerts "I'm a cat!"
                          // alerts "Meeeeoooowwww"

Parameters

args :  Array/Arguments

The arguments, either an array or the arguments object from the current method, for example: this.callOverridden(arguments)

Returns

:Object

Returns the result of calling the overridden method

Deprecated since version 4.1.0

callParent ( args ) : Object
protected pro

Call the "parent" method of the current method. That is the method previously overridden by derivation or by an override (see Ext#define).

 Ext.define('My.Base', {
     constructor: function (x) {
         this.x = x;
     },

     statics: {
         method: function (x) {
             return x;
         }
     }
 });

 Ext.define('My.Derived', {
     extend: 'My.Base',

     constructor: function () {
         this.callParent([21]);
     }
 });

 var obj = new My.Derived();

 alert(obj.x);  // alerts 21

This can be used with an override as follows:

 Ext.define('My.DerivedOverride', {
     override: 'My.Derived',

     constructor: function (x) {
         this.callParent([x*2]); // calls original My.Derived constructor
     }
 });

 var obj = new My.Derived();

 alert(obj.x);  // now alerts 42

This also works with static and private methods.

 Ext.define('My.Derived2', {
     extend: 'My.Base',

     // privates: {
     statics: {
         method: function (x) {
             return this.callParent([x*2]); // calls My.Base.method
         }
     }
 });

 alert(My.Base.method(10));     // alerts 10
 alert(My.Derived2.method(10)); // alerts 20

Lastly, it also works with overridden static methods.

 Ext.define('My.Derived2Override', {
     override: 'My.Derived2',

     // privates: {
     statics: {
         method: function (x) {
             return this.callParent([x*2]); // calls My.Derived2.method
         }
     }
 });

 alert(My.Derived2.method(10); // now alerts 40

To override a method and replace it and also call the superclass method, use method-callSuper. This is often done to patch a method to fix a bug.

Parameters

args :  Array/Arguments

The arguments, either an array or the arguments object from the current method, for example: this.callParent(arguments)

Returns

:Object

Returns the result of calling the parent method

callSuper ( args ) : Object
protected pro

This method is used by an override to call the superclass method but bypass any overridden method. This is often done to "patch" a method that contains a bug but for whatever reason cannot be fixed directly.

Consider:

 Ext.define('Ext.some.Class', {
     method: function () {
         console.log('Good');
     }
 });

 Ext.define('Ext.some.DerivedClass', {
     extend: 'Ext.some.Class',

     method: function () {
         console.log('Bad');

         // ... logic but with a bug ...

         this.callParent();
     }
 });

To patch the bug in Ext.some.DerivedClass.method, the typical solution is to create an override:

 Ext.define('App.patches.DerivedClass', {
     override: 'Ext.some.DerivedClass',

     method: function () {
         console.log('Fixed');

         // ... logic but with bug fixed ...

         this.callSuper();
     }
 });

The patch method cannot use method-callParent to call the superclass method since that would call the overridden method containing the bug. In other words, the above patch would only produce "Fixed" then "Good" in the console log, whereas, using callParent would produce "Fixed" then "Bad" then "Good".

Parameters

args :  Array/Arguments

The arguments, either an array or the arguments object from the current method, for example: this.callSuper(arguments)

Returns

:Object

Returns the result of calling the superclass method

clearListeners

Removes all listeners for this object including the managed listeners

clearManagedListeners

Removes all managed listeners for this object.

clearTimeout ( request )
private pri

Clears the timeout on the request

Parameters

request :  Object

The request

createRelayer ( newName, [beginEnd] ) : Function
private pri

Creates an event handling function which re-fires the event from this object as the passed event name.

Parameters

newName :  String

The name under which to re-fire the passed parameters.

beginEnd :  Array (optional)

The caller can specify on which indices to slice.

Returns

:Function

destroy

This method is called to cleanup an object and its resources. After calling this method, the object should not be used any further in any way, including access to its methods and properties.

To prevent potential memory leaks, all object references will be nulled at the end of destruction sequence, unless clearPropertiesOnDestroy is set to false.

doFireEvent ( eventName, args, bubbles )
private pri

Continue to fire event.

Parameters

eventName :  String

args :  Array

bubbles :  Boolean

enableBubble ( eventNames )

Enables events fired by this Observable to bubble up an owner hierarchy by calling this.getBubbleTarget() if present. There is no implementation in the Observable base class.

This is commonly used by Ext.Components to bubble events to owner Containers. See Ext.Component#getBubbleTarget. The default implementation in Ext.Component returns the Component's immediate owner. But if a known target is required, this can be overridden to access the required target more quickly.

Example:

Ext.define('Ext.overrides.form.field.Base', {
    override: 'Ext.form.field.Base',

    //  Add functionality to Field's initComponent to enable the change event to bubble
    initComponent: function () {
        this.callParent();
        this.enableBubble('change');
    }
});

var myForm = Ext.create('Ext.form.Panel', {
    title: 'User Details',
    items: [{
        ...
    }],
    listeners: {
        change: function() {
            // Title goes red if form has been modified.
            myForm.header.setStyle('color', 'red');
        }
    }
});

Parameters

eventNames :  String/String[]

The event name to bubble, or an Array of event names.

fireAction ( eventName, args, fn, [scope], [options], [order] )
deprecated dep

Fires the specified event with the passed parameters and executes a function (action). By default, the action function will be executed after any "before" event handlers (as specified using the order option of addListener), but before any other handlers are fired. This gives the "before" handlers an opportunity to cancel the event by returning false, and prevent the action function from being called.

The action can also be configured to run after normal handlers, but before any "after" handlers (as specified using the order event option) by passing 'after' as the order parameter. This configuration gives any event handlers except for "after" handlers the opportunity to cancel the event and prevent the action function from being called.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The name of the event to fire.

args :  Array

Arguments to pass to handlers and to the action function.

fn :  Function

The action function.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed. If omitted, defaults to the object which fired the event.

options :  Object (optional)

Event options for the action function. Accepts any of the options of addListener

order :  String (optional)

The order to call the action function relative too the event handlers ('before' or 'after'). Note that this option is simply used to sort the action function relative to the event handlers by "priority". An order of 'before' is equivalent to a priority of 99.5, while an order of 'after' is equivalent to a priority of -99.5. See the priority option of addListener for more details.

Defaults to: 'before'

Deprecated since version 5.5

fireEvent ( eventName, args ) : Boolean

Fires the specified event with the passed parameters (minus the event name, plus the options object passed to addListener).

An event may be set to bubble up an Observable parent hierarchy (See Ext.Component#getBubbleTarget) by calling enableBubble.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The name of the event to fire.

args :  Object...

Variable number of parameters are passed to handlers.

Returns

:Boolean

returns false if any of the handlers return false otherwise it returns true.

fireEventArgs ( eventName, args ) : Boolean

Fires the specified event with the passed parameter list.

An event may be set to bubble up an Observable parent hierarchy (See Ext.Component#getBubbleTarget) by calling enableBubble.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The name of the event to fire.

args :  Object[]

An array of parameters which are passed to handlers.

Returns

:Boolean

returns false if any of the handlers return false otherwise it returns true.

fireEventedAction ( eventName, args, fn, [scope], [fnArgs] ) : Boolean

Fires the specified event with the passed parameters and executes a function (action). Evented Actions will automatically dispatch a 'before' event passing. This event will be given a special controller that allows for pausing/resuming of the event flow.

By pausing the controller the updater and events will not run until resumed. Pausing, however, will not stop the processing of any other before events.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The name of the event to fire.

args :  Array

Arguments to pass to handlers and to the action function.

fn :  Function/String

The action function.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed. If omitted, defaults to the object which fired the event.

fnArgs :  Array/Boolean (optional)

Optional arguments for the action fn. If not given, the normal args will be used to call fn. If false is passed, the args are used but if the first argument is this instance it will be removed from the args passed to the action function.

Returns

:Boolean

getBubbleParent Ext.util.Observable
private pri

Gets the bubbling parent for an Observable

Returns

:Ext.util.Observable

The bubble parent. null is returned if no bubble target exists

getConfig ( [name], [peek] ) : Object

Returns a specified config property value. If the name parameter is not passed, all current configuration options will be returned as key value pairs.

Parameters

name :  String (optional)

The name of the config property to get.

peek :  Boolean (optional)

true to peek at the raw value without calling the getter.

Defaults to: false

Returns

:Object

The config property value.

getForm ( options ) : HTMLElement
private pri

Gets the form object from options.

Parameters

options :  Object

The request options

Returns

getId String

Retrieves the id of this component. Will autogenerate an id if one has not already been set.

Returns

:String

id

getInitialConfig ( [name] ) : Object/Mixed

Returns the initial configuration passed to the constructor when instantiating this class.

Given this example Ext.button.Button definition and instance:

Ext.define('MyApp.view.Button', {
    extend: 'Ext.button.Button',
    xtype: 'mybutton',

    scale: 'large',
    enableToggle: true
});

var btn = Ext.create({
    xtype: 'mybutton',
    renderTo: Ext.getBody(),
    text: 'Test Button'
});

Calling btn.getInitialConfig() would return an object including the config options passed to the create method:

xtype: 'mybutton',
renderTo: // The document body itself
text: 'Test Button'

Calling btn.getInitialConfig('text')returns 'Test Button'.

Parameters

name :  String (optional)

Name of the config option to return.

Returns

:Object/Mixed

The full config object or a single config value when name parameter specified.

name :  String

hasListener ( eventName ) : Boolean

Checks to see if this object has any listeners for a specified event, or whether the event bubbles. The answer indicates whether the event needs firing or not.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The name of the event to check for

Returns

:Boolean

true if the event is being listened for or bubbles, else false

initConfig ( instanceConfig ) : Ext.Base
chainable ch protected pro

Initialize configuration for this class. a typical example:

Ext.define('My.awesome.Class', {
    // The default config
    config: {
        name: 'Awesome',
        isAwesome: true
    },

    constructor: function(config) {
        this.initConfig(config);
    }
});

var awesome = new My.awesome.Class({
    name: 'Super Awesome'
});

alert(awesome.getName()); // 'Super Awesome'

Parameters

instanceConfig :  Object

Returns

:Ext.Base

this

isFormUpload ( options ) : Boolean

options :  Object

Returns

:Boolean

isLoading ( [request] ) : Boolean

Determines whether this object has a request outstanding.

Parameters

request :  Object (optional)

Defaults to the last transaction

Returns

:Boolean

True if there is an outstanding request.

isSuspended ( [event] ) : Boolean

Checks if all events, or a specific event, is suspended.

Parameters

event :  String (optional)

The name of the specific event to check

Returns

:Boolean

true if events are suspended

mon ( item, ename, [fn], [scope], [options] ) : Object

Shorthand for addManagedListener. The addManagedListener method is used when some object (call it "A") is listening to an event on another observable object ("B") and you want to remove that listener from "B" when "A" is destroyed. This is not an issue when "B" is destroyed because all of its listeners will be removed at that time.

Example:

Ext.define('Foo', {
    extend: 'Ext.Component',

    initComponent: function () {
        this.addManagedListener(MyApp.SomeGlobalSharedMenu, 'show', this.doSomething);
        this.callParent();
    }
});

As you can see, when an instance of Foo is destroyed, it ensures that the 'show' listener on the menu (MyApp.SomeGlobalSharedMenu) is also removed.

As of version 5.1 it is no longer necessary to use this method in most cases because listeners are automatically managed if the scope object provided to addListener is an Observable instance. However, if the observable instance and scope are not the same object you still need to use mon or addManagedListener if you want the listener to be managed.

Parameters

item :  Ext.util.Observable/Ext.dom.Element

The item to which to add a listener/listeners.

ename :  Object/String

The event name, or an object containing event name properties.

fn :  Function/String (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the handler function or the name of a method on the specified scope.

scope :  Object (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed.

options :  Object (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the addListener options.

Returns

:Object

Only when the destroyable option is specified.

A Destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which removes all listeners added in this call. For example:

this.btnListeners = myButton.mon({
    destroyable: true
    mouseover:   function() { console.log('mouseover'); },
    mouseout:    function() { console.log('mouseout'); },
    click:       function() { console.log('click'); }
});

And when those listeners need to be removed:

Ext.destroy(this.btnListeners);

or

this.btnListeners.destroy();

mun ( item, ename, [fn], [scope] )

Shorthand for removeManagedListener. Removes listeners that were added by the mon method.

Parameters

item :  Ext.util.Observable/Ext.dom.Element

The item from which to remove a listener/listeners.

ename :  Object/String

The event name, or an object containing event name properties.

fn :  Function (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the handler function.

scope :  Object (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed.

nativeBinaryPostSupport Boolean
private pri

Returns

:Boolean

true if the browser can natively post binary data.

on ( eventName, [fn], [scope], [options], [order] ) : Object

The on method is shorthand for addListener.

Appends an event handler to this object. For example:

myGridPanel.on("itemclick", this.onItemClick, this);

The method also allows for a single argument to be passed which is a config object containing properties which specify multiple events. For example:

myGridPanel.on({
    cellclick: this.onCellClick,
    select: this.onSelect,
    viewready: this.onViewReady,
    scope: this // Important. Ensure "this" is correct during handler execution
});

One can also specify options for each event handler separately:

myGridPanel.on({
    cellclick: {fn: this.onCellClick, scope: this, single: true},
    viewready: {fn: panel.onViewReady, scope: panel}
});

Names of methods in a specified scope may also be used:

myGridPanel.on({
    cellclick: {fn: 'onCellClick', scope: this, single: true},
    viewready: {fn: 'onViewReady', scope: panel}
});

Parameters

eventName :  String/Object

The name of the event to listen for. May also be an object who's property names are event names.

fn :  Function/String (optional)

The method the event invokes or the name of the method within the specified scope. Will be called with arguments given to Ext.util.Observable#fireEvent plus the options parameter described below.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed. If omitted, defaults to the object which fired the event.

options :  Object (optional)

An object containing handler configuration.

Note: The options object will also be passed as the last argument to every event handler.

This object may contain any of the following properties:

scope :  Object

The scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed. If omitted, defaults to the object which fired the event.

delay :  Number

The number of milliseconds to delay the invocation of the handler after the event fires.

single :  Boolean

True to add a handler to handle just the next firing of the event, and then remove itself.

buffer :  Number

Causes the handler to be scheduled to run in an Ext.util.DelayedTask delayed by the specified number of milliseconds. If the event fires again within that time, the original handler is not invoked, but the new handler is scheduled in its place.

onFrame :  Number

Causes the handler to be scheduled to run at the next animation frame event. If the event fires again before that time, the handler is not rescheduled - the handler will only be called once when the next animation frame is fired, with the last set of arguments passed.

target :  Ext.util.Observable

Only call the handler if the event was fired on the target Observable, not if the event was bubbled up from a child Observable.

element :  String

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.Component. The name of a Component property which references an Ext.dom.Element to add a listener to.

This option is useful during Component construction to add DOM event listeners to elements of Ext.Component which will exist only after the Component is rendered.

For example, to add a click listener to a Panel's body:

  var panel = new Ext.panel.Panel({
                              title: 'The title',
                              listeners: {
                                  click: this.handlePanelClick,
                                  element: 'body'
                              }
                          });
                        

In order to remove listeners attached using the element, you'll need to reference the element itself as seen below.

 panel.body.un(...)
                        

delegate :  String (optional)

A simple selector to filter the event target or look for a descendant of the target.

The "delegate" option is only available on Ext.dom.Element instances (or when attaching a listener to a Ext.dom.Element via a Component using the element option).

See the delegate example below.

capture :  Boolean (optional)

When set to true, the listener is fired in the capture phase of the event propagation sequence, instead of the default bubble phase.

The capture option is only available on Ext.dom.Element instances (or when attaching a listener to a Ext.dom.Element via a Component using the element option).

stopPropagation :  Boolean (optional)

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.dom.Element. true to call stopPropagation on the event object before firing the handler.

preventDefault :  Boolean (optional)

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.dom.Element. true to call preventDefault on the event object before firing the handler.

stopEvent :  Boolean (optional)

This option is only valid for listeners bound to Ext.dom.Element. true to call stopEvent on the event object before firing the handler.

args :  Array (optional)

Optional set of arguments to pass to the handler function before the actual fired event arguments. For example, if args is set to ['foo', 42], the event handler function will be called with an arguments list like this:

 handler('foo', 42, <actual event arguments>...);
                        

destroyable :  Boolean (optional)

When specified as true, the function returns a destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which removes all listeners added in this call. This syntax can be a helpful shortcut to using un; particularly when removing multiple listeners. NOTE - not compatible when using the element option. See un for the proper syntax for removing listeners added using the element config.

Defaults to:

false

priority :  Number (optional)

An optional numeric priority that determines the order in which event handlers are run. Event handlers with no priority will be run as if they had a priority of 0. Handlers with a higher priority will be prioritized to run sooner than those with a lower priority. Negative numbers can be used to set a priority lower than the default. Internally, the framework uses a range of 1000 or greater, and -1000 or lesser for handlers that are intended to run before or after all others, so it is recommended to stay within the range of -999 to 999 when setting the priority of event handlers in application-level code. A priority must be an integer to be valid. Fractional values are reserved for internal framework use.

order :  String (optional)

A legacy option that is provided for backward compatibility. It is recommended to use the priority option instead. Available options are:

  • 'before': equal to a priority of 100
  • 'current': equal to a priority of 0 or default priority
  • 'after': equal to a priority of -100

Defaults to:

'current'

order :  String (optional)

A shortcut for the order event option. Provided for backward compatibility. Please use the priority event option instead.

Combining Options

Using the options argument, it is possible to combine different types of listeners:

A delayed, one-time listener.

myPanel.on('hide', this.handleClick, this, {
    single: true,
    delay: 100
});

Attaching multiple handlers in 1 call

The method also allows for a single argument to be passed which is a config object containing properties which specify multiple handlers and handler configs.

grid.on({
    itemclick: 'onItemClick',
    itemcontextmenu: grid.onItemContextmenu,
    destroy: {
        fn: function () {
            // function called within the 'altCmp' scope instead of grid
        },
        scope: altCmp // unique scope for the destroy handler
    },
    scope: grid       // default scope - provided for example clarity
});

Delegate

This is a configuration option that you can pass along when registering a handler for an event to assist with event delegation. By setting this configuration option to a simple selector, the target element will be filtered to look for a descendant of the target. For example:

var panel = Ext.create({
    xtype: 'panel',
    renderTo: document.body,
    title: 'Delegate Handler Example',
    frame: true,
    height: 220,
    width: 220,
    html: '<h1 class="myTitle">BODY TITLE</h1>Body content'
});

// The click handler will only be called when the click occurs on the
// delegate: h1.myTitle ("h1" tag with class "myTitle")
panel.on({
    click: function (e) {
        console.log(e.getTarget().innerHTML);
    },
    element: 'body',
    delegate: 'h1.myTitle'
 });

Defaults to: 'current'

Returns

:Object

Only when the destroyable option is specified.

A Destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which removes all listeners added in this call. For example:

this.btnListeners =  = myButton.on({
    destroyable: true
    mouseover:   function() { console.log('mouseover'); },
    mouseout:    function() { console.log('mouseout'); },
    click:       function() { console.log('click'); }
});

And when those listeners need to be removed:

Ext.destroy(this.btnListeners);

or

this.btnListeners.destroy();

relayEvents ( origin, events, [prefix] ) : Object

Relays selected events from the specified Observable as if the events were fired by this.

For example if you are extending Grid, you might decide to forward some events from store. So you can do this inside your initComponent:

this.relayEvents(this.getStore(), ['load']);

The grid instance will then have an observable 'load' event which will be passed the parameters of the store's load event and any function fired with the grid's load event would have access to the grid using the this keyword (unless the event is handled by a controller's control/listen event listener in which case 'this' will be the controller rather than the grid).

Parameters

origin :  Object

The Observable whose events this object is to relay.

events :  String[]/Object

Array of event names to relay or an Object with key/value pairs translating to ActualEventName/NewEventName respectively. For example: this.relayEvents(this, {add:'push', remove:'pop'});

Would now redispatch the add event of this as a push event and the remove event as a pop event.

prefix :  String (optional)

A common prefix to prepend to the event names. For example:

this.relayEvents(this.getStore(), ['load', 'clear'], 'store');

Now the grid will forward 'load' and 'clear' events of store as 'storeload' and 'storeclear'.

Returns

:Object

A Destroyable object. An object which implements the destroy method which, when destroyed, removes all relayers. For example:

this.storeRelayers = this.relayEvents(this.getStore(), ['load', 'clear'], 'store');

Can be undone by calling

Ext.destroy(this.storeRelayers);

or this.store.relayers.destroy();

removeListener ( eventName, fn, [scope] ) :
chainable ch

Removes an event handler.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The type of event the handler was associated with.

fn :  Function

The handler to remove. This must be a reference to the function passed into the addListener call.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope originally specified for the handler. It must be the same as the scope argument specified in the original call to Ext.util.Observable#addListener or the listener will not be removed.

Convenience Syntax

You can use the addListener destroyable: true config option in place of calling un(). For example:

var listeners = cmp.on({
    scope: cmp,
    afterrender: cmp.onAfterrender,
    beforehide: cmp.onBeforeHide,
    destroyable: true
});

// Remove listeners
listeners.destroy();
// or
cmp.un(
    scope: cmp,
    afterrender: cmp.onAfterrender,
    beforehide: cmp.onBeforeHide
);

Exception - DOM event handlers using the element config option

You must go directly through the element to detach an event handler attached using the addListener element option.

panel.on({
    element: 'body',
    click: 'onBodyCLick'
});

panel.body.un({
    click: 'onBodyCLick'
});

Returns

:

removeManagedListener ( item, ename, [fn], [scope] )

Removes listeners that were added by the mon method.

Parameters

item :  Ext.util.Observable/Ext.dom.Element

The item from which to remove a listener/listeners.

ename :  Object/String

The event name, or an object containing event name properties.

fn :  Function (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the handler function.

scope :  Object (optional)

If the ename parameter was an event name, this is the scope (this reference) in which the handler function is executed.

removeManagedListenerItem ( isClear, managedListener )
private pri

Remove a single managed listener item

Parameters

isClear :  Boolean

True if this is being called during a clear

managedListener :  Object

The managed listener item See removeManagedListener for other args

request ( options ) : Ext.data.request.Base

Sends an HTTP (Ajax) request to a remote server.

Important: Ajax server requests are asynchronous, and this call will return before the response has been received.

Instead, process any returned data using a promise:

 Ext.Ajax.request({
     url: 'ajax_demo/sample.json'
 }).then(function(response, opts) {
     var obj = Ext.decode(response.responseText);
     console.dir(obj);
 },
 function(response, opts) {
     console.log('server-side failure with status code ' + response.status);
 });

Or in callback functions:

 Ext.Ajax.request({
     url: 'ajax_demo/sample.json',

     success: function(response, opts) {
         var obj = Ext.decode(response.responseText);
         console.dir(obj);
     },

     failure: function(response, opts) {
         console.log('server-side failure with status code ' + response.status);
     }
 });

To execute a callback function in the correct scope, use the scope option.

Parameters

options :  Object

An object which may contain the following properties:

(The options object may also contain any other property which might be needed to perform postprocessing in a callback because it is passed to callback functions.)

url :  String / Function

The URL to which to send the request, or a function to call which returns a URL string. The scope of the function is specified by the scope option. Defaults to the configured url.

async :  Boolean

true if this request should run asynchronously. Setting this to false should generally be avoided, since it will cause the UI to be blocked, the user won't be able to interact with the browser until the request completes. Defaults to true.

params :  Object / String / Function

An object containing properties which are used as parameters to the request, a url encoded string or a function to call to get either. The scope of the function is specified by the scope option.

method :  String

The HTTP method to use for the request. Defaults to the configured method, or if no method was configured, "GET" if no parameters are being sent, and "POST" if parameters are being sent. Note that the method name is case-sensitive and should be all caps.

callback :  Function

The function to be called upon receipt of the HTTP response. The callback is called regardless of success or failure and is passed the following parameters:

options :  Object

The parameter to the request call.

success :  Boolean

True if the request succeeded.

response :  Object

The XMLHttpRequest object containing the response data. See www.w3.org/TR/XMLHttpRequest/ for details about accessing elements of the response.

success :  Function

The function to be called upon success of the request. The callback is passed the following parameters:

response :  Object

The XMLHttpRequest object containing the response data.

options :  Object

The parameter to the request call.

failure :  Function

The function to be called upon failure of the request. The callback is passed the following parameters:

response :  Object

The XMLHttpRequest object containing the response data.

options :  Object

The parameter to the request call.

scope :  Object

The scope in which to execute the callbacks: The "this" object for the callback function. If the url, or params options were specified as functions from which to draw values, then this also serves as the scope for those function calls. Defaults to the browser window.

timeout :  Number

The timeout in milliseconds to be used for this request. Defaults to 30000 milliseconds (30 seconds).

When a request fails due to timeout the XMLHttpRequest response object will contain:

timedout: true
                        

form :  Ext.dom.Element / HTMLElement / String

The <form> Element or the id of the <form> to pull parameters from.

isUpload :  Boolean

Only meaningful when used with the form option.

True if the form object is a file upload (will be set automatically if the form was configured with enctype "multipart/form-data").

File uploads are not performed using normal "Ajax" techniques, that is they are not performed using XMLHttpRequests. Instead the form is submitted in the standard manner with the DOM &lt;form&gt; element temporarily modified to have its target set to refer to a dynamically generated, hidden &lt;iframe&gt; which is inserted into the document but removed after the return data has been gathered.

The server response is parsed by the browser to create the document for the IFRAME. If the server is using JSON to send the return object, then the Content-Type header must be set to "text/html" in order to tell the browser to insert the text unchanged into the document body.

The response text is retrieved from the document, and a fake XMLHttpRequest object is created containing a responseText property in order to conform to the requirements of event handlers and callbacks.

Be aware that file upload packets are sent with the content type multipart/form and some server technologies (notably JEE) may require some custom processing in order to retrieve parameter names and parameter values from the packet content.

target Content-Type multipart/form

headers :  Object

Request headers to set for the request. The XHR will attempt to set an appropriate Content-Type based on the params/data passed to the request. To prevent this, setting the Content-Type header to null or undefined will not attempt to set any Content-Type and it will be left to the browser.

xmlData :  Object

XML document to use for the post. Note: This will be used instead of params for the post data. Any params will be appended to the URL.

jsonData :  Object / String

JSON data to use as the post. Note: This will be used instead of params for the post data. Any params will be appended to the URL.

rawData :  String

A raw string to use as the post. Note: This will be used instead of params for the post data. Any params will be appended to the URL.

binaryData :  Array

An array of bytes to submit in binary form. Any params will be appended to the URL. If binaryData is present, you must set binary to true and options.method to POST.

disableCaching :  Boolean

True to add a unique cache-buster param to GET requests.

withCredentials :  Boolean

True to add the withCredentials property to the XHR object

username :  String

The username to pass when using withCredentials.

password :  String

The password to pass when using withCredentials.

binary :  Boolean

True if the response should be treated as binary data. If true, the binary data will be accessible as a "responseBytes" property on the response object.

Returns

:Ext.data.request.Base

The request object. This may be used to abort the request.

resumeEvent ( eventName )

Resumes firing of the named event(s).

After calling this method to resume events, the events will fire when requested to fire.

Note that if the suspendEvent method is called multiple times for a certain event, this converse method will have to be called the same number of times for it to resume firing.

Parameters

eventName :  String...

Multiple event names to resume.

resumeEvents ( [discardQueue] )

Resumes firing events (see suspendEvents).

If events were suspended using the queueSuspended parameter, then all events fired during event suspension will be sent to any listeners now.

Parameters

discardQueue :  Boolean (optional)

true to prevent any previously queued events from firing while we were suspended. See suspendEvents.

setConfig ( name, [value] ) : Ext.Base
chainable ch

Sets a single/multiple configuration options.

statics Ext.Class
protected pro

Get the reference to the class from which this object was instantiated. Note that unlike Ext.Base#self, this.statics() is scope-independent and it always returns the class from which it was called, regardless of what this points to during run-time

Ext.define('My.Cat', {
    statics: {
        totalCreated: 0,
        speciesName: 'Cat' // My.Cat.speciesName = 'Cat'
    },

    constructor: function() {
        var statics = this.statics();

        alert(statics.speciesName);     // always equals to 'Cat' no matter what 'this' refers to
                                        // equivalent to: My.Cat.speciesName

        alert(this.self.speciesName);   // dependent on 'this'

        statics.totalCreated++;
    },

    clone: function() {
        var cloned = new this.self();   // dependent on 'this'

        cloned.groupName = this.statics().speciesName;   // equivalent to: My.Cat.speciesName

        return cloned;
    }
});


Ext.define('My.SnowLeopard', {
    extend: 'My.Cat',

    statics: {
        speciesName: 'Snow Leopard'     // My.SnowLeopard.speciesName = 'Snow Leopard'
    },

    constructor: function() {
        this.callParent();
    }
});

var cat = new My.Cat();                 // alerts 'Cat', then alerts 'Cat'

var snowLeopard = new My.SnowLeopard(); // alerts 'Cat', then alerts 'Snow Leopard'

var clone = snowLeopard.clone();
alert(Ext.getClassName(clone));         // alerts 'My.SnowLeopard'
alert(clone.groupName);                 // alerts 'Cat'

alert(My.Cat.totalCreated);             // alerts 3

Returns

:Ext.Class

suspendEvent ( eventName )

Suspends firing of the named event(s).

After calling this method to suspend events, the events will no longer fire when requested to fire.

Note that if this is called multiple times for a certain event, the converse method resumeEvent will have to be called the same number of times for it to resume firing.

Parameters

eventName :  String...

Multiple event names to suspend.

suspendEvents ( queueSuspended )

Suspends the firing of all events. (see resumeEvents)

Parameters

queueSuspended :  Boolean

true to queue up suspended events to be fired after the resumeEvents call instead of discarding all suspended events.

un ( eventName, fn, [scope] ) :

Shorthand for removeListener. Removes an event handler.

Parameters

eventName :  String

The type of event the handler was associated with.

fn :  Function

The handler to remove. This must be a reference to the function passed into the addListener call.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope originally specified for the handler. It must be the same as the scope argument specified in the original call to Ext.util.Observable#addListener or the listener will not be removed.

Convenience Syntax

You can use the addListener destroyable: true config option in place of calling un(). For example:

var listeners = cmp.on({
    scope: cmp,
    afterrender: cmp.onAfterrender,
    beforehide: cmp.onBeforeHide,
    destroyable: true
});

// Remove listeners
listeners.destroy();
// or
cmp.un(
    scope: cmp,
    afterrender: cmp.onAfterrender,
    beforehide: cmp.onBeforeHide
);

Exception - DOM event handlers using the element config option

You must go directly through the element to detach an event handler attached using the addListener element option.

override ( members ) : Ext.Base
chainable ch static sta

Override members of this class. Overridden methods can be invoked via Ext.Base#callParent.

Ext.define('My.Cat', {
    constructor: function() {
        alert("I'm a cat!");
    }
});

My.Cat.override({
    constructor: function() {
        alert("I'm going to be a cat!");

        this.callParent(arguments);

        alert("Meeeeoooowwww");
    }
});

var kitty = new My.Cat(); // alerts "I'm going to be a cat!"
                          // alerts "I'm a cat!"
                          // alerts "Meeeeoooowwww"

Direct use of this method should be rare. Use Ext.define instead:

Ext.define('My.CatOverride', {
    override: 'My.Cat',
    constructor: function() {
        alert("I'm going to be a cat!");

        this.callParent(arguments);

        alert("Meeeeoooowwww");
    }
});

The above accomplishes the same result but can be managed by the Ext.Loader which can properly order the override and its target class and the build process can determine whether the override is needed based on the required state of the target class (My.Cat).
