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.data.amf.Reader reader: reader.amf

Summary

The AMF Reader is used by an Ext.data.amf.Proxy to read records from a server response that contains binary data in either AMF0 or AMF3 format. AMF Reader constructs an Ext.data.amf.Packet and uses it to decode the binary data into javascript objects, then simply allows its superclass (Ext.data.reader.Json) to handle converting the raw javascript objects into Ext.data.Model instances.

For a more detailed tutorial see the AMF Guide.

No members found using the current filters

configs

Optional Configs

implicitIncludes : Boolean

True to automatically parse models nested within other models in a response object. See the Ext.data.reader.Reader intro docs for full explanation.

Defaults to:

true

getImplicitIncludes : Boolean

Returns the value of implicitIncludes

Returns

Boolean

setImplicitIncludes (implicitIncludes)

Sets the value of implicitIncludes

Parameters

implicitIncludes :  Boolean

keepRawData : Boolean

Determines if the Reader will keep raw data received from the server in the rawData property.

While this might seem useful to do additional data processing, keeping raw data might cause adverse effects such as memory leaks. It is recommended to set keepRawData to false if you do not need the raw data.

If you need to process data packet to extract additional data such as row summaries, it is recommended to use transform function for that purpose.

Note that starting with Ext JS 6.0 the default behavior has been changed to not keep the raw data because of the high potential for memory leaks.

Defaults to:

null

Available since: 5.1.1

getKeepRawData : Boolean

Returns the value of keepRawData

Returns

Boolean

setKeepRawData (keepRawData)

Sets the value of keepRawData

Parameters

keepRawData :  Boolean

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.

Parameters

listeners :  Object

The listeners

messageIndex : Number

AMF Packets can contain multiple messages. This config specifies the 0-based index of the message that contains the record data.

Defaults to:

0

messageProperty : String

The name of the property which contains a response message for exception handling. If you want to return a false success response from the server, maybe due to some server-side validation, the messageProperty can hold the error message. For example:

{
    "success": false,
    "error": "There was an error with your request"
}

You can retrieve this error message in a callback when loading a Ext.data.Store or Ext.data.Model like:

var store = new Ext.data.Store({
    fields : ['foo'],
    proxy  : {
        type   : 'ajax',
        url    : 'data.json',
        reader : {
            type            : 'json',
            rootProperty    : 'data',
            messageProperty : 'error'
        }
    }
});

store.load({
    callback: function(records, operation, success) {
        if (success) {
            // ...
        } else {
            var error = operation.getError();

            Ext.Msg.alert('Error', error);
        }
    }
});

In this example, the callback will execute with success being false and will therefore show the Ext.Msg.alert with the error string returned in the response.

Defaults to:

''

getMessageProperty : String

Returns the value of messageProperty

Returns

String

setMessageProperty (messageProperty)

Sets the value of messageProperty

Parameters

messageProperty :  String

metaProperty : String

Name of the property from which to retrieve the metaData attribute. See metaData.

Defaults to:

'metaData'

getMetaProperty : String

Returns the value of metaProperty

Returns

String

setMetaProperty (metaProperty)

Sets the value of metaProperty

Parameters

metaProperty :  String

model : String / Ext.data.Model

The model to use for this reader. This config is only required if the reader is being used without a proxy, otherwise the proxy will automatically set the model.

Defaults to:

null

getModel : String / Ext.data.Model

Returns the value of model

Returns

String / Ext.data.Model

setModel (model)

Sets the value of model

Parameters

model :  String / Ext.data.Model

preserveRawData : Boolean

The reader will keep a copy of the most recent request in the rawData property. For performance reasons, the data object for each record is used directly as the model data. This means that these objects may be modified and thus modify the raw data. To ensure the objects are copied, set this option to true. NB: This only applies to items that are read as part of the data array, any other metadata will not be modified:

{
    "someOtherData": 1, // Won't be modified
    "root": [{}, {}, {}] // The objects here will be modified
}

Defaults to:

false

getPreserveRawData : Boolean

Returns the value of preserveRawData

Returns

Boolean

setPreserveRawData (preserveRawData)

Sets the value of preserveRawData

Parameters

preserveRawData :  Boolean

proxy : Ext.data.proxy.Proxy
private pri

The proxy attached to this reader. Typically only needed onMetaChange so that we can set the new model on the proxy.

Defaults to:

null

getProxy : Ext.data.proxy.Proxy

Returns the value of proxy

Returns

Ext.data.proxy.Proxy

setProxy (proxy)

Sets the value of proxy

Parameters

proxy :  Ext.data.proxy.Proxy

readRecordsOnFailure : Boolean

True to extract the records from a data packet even if the successProperty returns false.

Defaults to:

true

getReadRecordsOnFailure : Boolean

Returns the value of readRecordsOnFailure

Returns

Boolean

setReadRecordsOnFailure (readRecordsOnFailure)

Sets the value of readRecordsOnFailure

Parameters

readRecordsOnFailure :  Boolean

record : String

The optional location within the JSON response that the record data itself can be found at. See the JsonReader intro docs for more details. This is not often needed.

Defaults to:

null

getRecord : String

Returns the value of record

Returns

String

setRecord (record)

Sets the value of record

Parameters

record :  String

rootProperty : String / Function

The property that contains data items corresponding to the Model(s) of the configured Reader. rootProperty varies by Reader type.

JSON Reader

rootProperty is a property name. It may also be a dot-separated list of property names if the root is nested. The root JSON array will be used by default.

// rootPropety config
rootProperty: 'embedded.myresults'

// server response
{
    embedded: {
        myresults: [{
            name: 'Scott',
            age: 22
        }, {
            name: 'Ramona',
            age: 24
        }]
    },
    success: true
}

XML Reader

rootProperty is a CSS selector. The root XML element will be used by default.

// rootProperty config (plus record config)
rootProperty: 'myresults',
record: 'user'

// server response
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<embedded>
    <myresults>
        <user>
            <name>Scott</name>
            <age>22</age>
        </user>
        <user>
            <name>Ramona</name>
            <age>24</age>
        </user>
    </myresults>
</embedded>

Array Reader

rootProperty is not typically applicable since the data is assumed to be a single-level array of arrays. However, if the array of records is returned within a JSON response a rootProperty config may be used:

// rootProperty config
rootProperty: 'embedded.myresults'

// server response
{
    embedded: {
        myresults: [['Scott', 22], ['Ramona', 24]]
    },
    success: true
}

rootProperty as a function

The rootProperty may also be a function that returns the root node from the dataset. For example:

var store = Ext.create('Ext.data.TreeStore', {
    proxy: {
        type: 'memory',
        reader: {
            type: 'json',
            rootProperty: function(data){
                // Extract child nodes from the items or children property in the dataset
                return data.items || data.children;
            }
        }
    },
    data: {
        items: [{
            text: 'item 1',
            children: [{
                text: 'child A',
                leaf: true
            }]
        }]
    }
});

Ext.create('Ext.tree.Panel', {
    title: 'rootProperty as a function',
    width: 200,
    height:150,
    store: store,
    rootVisible: false,
    renderTo: Ext.getBody()
});

Defaults to:

''

getRootProperty : String / Function

Returns the value of rootProperty

Returns

String / Function

setRootProperty (rootProperty)

Sets the value of rootProperty

Parameters

rootProperty :  String / Function

successProperty : String

Name of the property from which to retrieve the success attribute, the value of which indicates whether a given request succeeded or failed (typically a boolean or 'true'|'false'). See Ext.data.proxy.Server.exception for additional information.

Defaults to:

'success'

getSuccessProperty : String

Returns the value of successProperty

Returns

String

setSuccessProperty (successProperty)

Sets the value of successProperty

Parameters

successProperty :  String

totalProperty : String

Name of the property from which to retrieve the total number of records in the dataset. This is only needed if the whole dataset is not passed in one go, but is being paged from the remote server.

Defaults to:

'total'

getTotalProperty : String

Returns the value of totalProperty

Returns

String

setTotalProperty (totalProperty)

Sets the value of totalProperty

Parameters

totalProperty :  String

transform : Function / String / Object

If a transform function is set, it will be invoked just before readRecords executes. It is passed the raw (deserialized) data object. The transform function returns a data object, which can be a modified version of the original data object, or a completely new data object. The transform can be a function, or a method name on the Reader instance, or an object with a 'fn' key and an optional 'scope' key.

Example usage:

Ext.create('Ext.data.Store', {
    model: 'User',
    proxy: {
        type: 'ajax',
        url : 'users.json',
        reader: {
            type: 'json',
            transform: {
                fn: function(data) {
                    // do some manipulation of the raw data object
                    return data;
                },
                scope: this
            }
        }
    },
});

Defaults to:

null

getTransform : Function / String / Object

Returns the value of transform

Returns

Function / String / Object

setTransform (transform)

Sets the value of transform

Parameters

transform :  Function / String / Object

typeProperty : String

The name of the property in a node raw data block which indicates the type of the model to be created from that raw data. Useful for heterogeneous trees.

For example, hierarchical geographical data may look like this:

{
    nodeType: 'Territory',
    name: 'EMEA',
    children: [{
        nodeType: 'Country',
        name: 'United Kingdon',
        children: [{
            nodeType: 'City',
            name: 'London'
        }]
    }]
}

You would configure the typeProperty in this case to be "nodeType" which would cause the models named "Territory", "Country" and "City" to be used.

Defaults to:

''

getTypeProperty : String

Returns the value of typeProperty

Returns

String

setTypeProperty (typeProperty)

Sets the value of typeProperty

Parameters

typeProperty :  String

useSimpleAccessors : Boolean

True to ensure that field names/mappings are treated as literals when reading values.

For example, by default, using the mapping "foo.bar.baz" will try and read a property foo from the root, then a property bar from foo, then a property baz from bar. Setting the simple accessors to true will read the property with the name "foo.bar.baz" direct from the root object.

Defaults to:

false

getUseSimpleAccessors : Boolean

Returns the value of useSimpleAccessors

Returns

Boolean

setUseSimpleAccessors (useSimpleAccessors)

Sets the value of useSimpleAccessors

Parameters

useSimpleAccessors :  Boolean

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

factoryConfig : Object

If this property is specified by the target class of this mixin its properties are used to configure the created Ext.Factory.

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

isReader : Boolean

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

Defaults to:

true

metaData : Object
readonly ro

The raw meta data that was most recently read, if any. Meta data can include existing Reader config options like totalProperty, etc. that get automatically applied to the Reader, and those can still be accessed directly from the Reader if needed. However, meta data is also often used to pass other custom data to be processed by application code. For example, it is common when reconfiguring the data model of a grid to also pass a corresponding column model config to be applied to the grid. Any such data will not get applied to the Reader directly (it just gets passed through and is ignored by Ext). This metaData property gives you access to all meta data that was passed, including any such custom data ignored by the reader.

This is a read-only property, and it will get replaced each time a new meta data object is passed to the reader. Note that typically you would handle proxy's metachange event which passes this exact same meta object to listeners. However this property is available if it's more convenient to access it via the reader directly in certain cases.

rawData : Object

The raw data object that was last passed to readRecords. rawData is populated based on the results of Ext.data.proxy.Server#processResponse. rawData will maintain a cached copy of the last successfully returned records. In other words, if processResponse is unsuccessful, the records from the last successful response will remain cached in rawData.

Since Ext JS 5.1.1 you can use the keepRawData config option to control this behavior.

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

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();

buildExtractors ( [force] ) : Boolean
private pri

This builds optimized functions for retrieving record data and meta data from an object. Subclasses may need to implement their own getRoot function.

Parameters

force :  Boolean (optional)

True to automatically remove existing extractor functions first

Defaults to: false

Returns

:Boolean

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.

constructor ( [config] )

Creates new Reader.

Parameters

config :  Object (optional)

Config object.

createAccessor
private pri

Returns an accessor function for the given property string. Gives support for properties such as the following:

  • 'someProperty'
  • 'some.property'
  • '["someProperty"]'
  • 'values[0]'

This is used by buildExtractors to create optimized extractor functions for properties that are looked up directly on the source object (e.g. successProperty, messageProperty, etc.).

createFieldAccessor ( field )
private pri

Returns an accessor function for the passed Field. Gives support for properties such as the following:

  • 'someProperty'
  • 'some.property'
  • '["someProperty"]'
  • 'values[0]'

This is used by buildExtractors to create optimized extractor expressions when converting raw data into model instances. This method is used at the field level to dynamically map values to model fields.

Parameters

field :  Object

createReadError ( msg ) : Object
private pri

Creates an object that identifies a read error occurred.

Parameters

msg :  String

An error message to include

Returns

:Object

An error object

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.

extractData ( root, [readOptions] ) : Ext.data.Model[]
private pri

We're just preparing the data for the superclass by pulling out the record objects we want. If a record was specified we have to pull those out of the larger JSON object, which is most of what this function is doing

Parameters

root :  Object

The JSON root node

readOptions :  Object (optional)

See read for details.

Returns

:Ext.data.Model[]

The records

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.

getData ( data ) : Object
template tpl protected pro

This method provides a hook to do any data transformation before the reading process begins. By default this function just returns what is passed to it. It can be overridden in a subclass to return something else. See Ext.data.reader.Xml for an example.

Parameters

data :  Object

The data object

Returns

:Object

The normalized data object

This is a template method. a hook into the functionality of this class. Feel free to override it in child classes.

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.

getNullResultSet Ext.data.ResultSet
private pri

Returns the shared null result set.

Returns

:Ext.data.ResultSet

The null result set.

getResponseData ( response ) : Object

Takes a raw response object (as passed to the read method) and returns the useful data segment from it. This must be implemented by each subclass.

Parameters

response :  Object

The response object

Returns

:Object

The extracted data from the response. For example, a JSON object or an XML document.

getRoot ( data ) : Object
private pri

This will usually need to be implemented in a subclass. Given a generic data object (the type depends on the type of data we are reading), this function should return the object as configured by the Reader's 'root' meta data config. See XmlReader's getRoot implementation for an example. By default the same data object will simply be returned.

Parameters

data :  Object

The data object

Returns

:Object

The same data object

hasConfig ( name )
private pri

Parameters

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

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.

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();

onAfter ( eventName, fn, [scope], [options] )

Appends an after-event handler.

Same as addListener with order set to 'after'.

Parameters

eventName :  String/String[]/Object

The name of the event to listen for.

fn :  Function/String

The method the event invokes.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope for fn.

options :  Object (optional)

An object containing handler configuration.

onBefore ( eventName, fn, [scope], [options] )

Appends a before-event handler. Returning false from the handler will stop the event.

Same as addListener with order set to 'before'.

Parameters

eventName :  String/String[]/Object

The name of the event to listen for.

fn :  Function/String

The method the event invokes.

scope :  Object (optional)

The scope for fn.

options :  Object (optional)

An object containing handler configuration.

onMetaChange ( meta )
private pri

Reconfigures the meta data tied to this Reader

Parameters

meta :  Object

read ( response ) : Ext.data.ResultSet

Reads records from a XMLHttpRequest response object containing a binary AMF Packet and returns a ResultSet.

Parameters

response :  Object

The XMLHttpRequest response object

Returns

:Ext.data.ResultSet

readAssociated ( record, data, readOptions )
private pri

Loads the record associations from the data object.

Parameters

record :  Ext.data.Model

The record to load associations for.

data :  Object

The raw data object.

readOptions :  Object

See read.

readRecords ( data, [readOptions] ) : Ext.data.ResultSet

Reads a JSON object and returns a ResultSet. Uses the internal getTotal and getSuccess extractors to retrieve meta data from the response, and extractData to turn the JSON data into model instances.

Parameters

data :  Object

The raw JSON data

readOptions :  Object (optional)

See read for details.

Returns

:Ext.data.ResultSet

A ResultSet containing model instances and meta data about the results

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

:

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

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.

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.

this

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.

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

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

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).
