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 - Modern Toolkit


top

Hierarchy

Ext.Base
Ext.mixin.Bindable
NOTE: This is a private utility class for internal use by the framework. Don't rely on its existence.

Summary

This class is intended as a mixin for classes that want to provide a "bind" config that connects to a ViewModel.

No members found using the current filters

configs

Optional Configs

bind : Object / String

Setting this config option adds or removes data bindings for other configs. For example, to bind the title config:

 var panel = Ext.create({
     xtype: 'panel',
     bind: {
         title: 'Hello {user.name}'
     }
 });

To dynamically add bindings:

 panel.setBind({
     title: 'Greetings {user.name}!'
 });

To remove bindings:

 panel.setBind({
     title: null
 });

The bind expressions are presented to Ext.app.ViewModel#bind. The ViewModel instance is determined by lookupViewModel.

Note: If bind is passed as a string, it will use the Ext.Component#property-defaultBindProperty for the binding.

Defaults to:

null

getBind : Object / String

Returns the value of bind

Returns

Object / String

setBind (bind)

Sets the value of bind

Parameters

bind :  Object / String

controller : String / Object / Ext.app.ViewController

A string alias, a configuration object or an instance of a ViewController for this container. Sample usage:

Ext.define('MyApp.UserController', {
    alias: 'controller.user'
});

Ext.define('UserContainer', {
    extend: 'Ext.container.container',
    controller: 'user'
});
// Or
Ext.define('UserContainer', {
    extend: 'Ext.container.container',
    controller: {
        type: 'user',
        someConfig: true
    }
});

// Can also instance at runtime
var ctrl = new MyApp.UserController();
var view = new UserContainer({
    controller: ctrl
});

Defaults to:

null

getController Ext.app.ViewController

Returns the Ext.app.ViewController instance associated with this component via the controller config or setController method.

Returns

:Ext.app.ViewController
Returns this component's ViewController or null if one was not configured

setController (controller)

Sets the value of controller

Parameters

controller :  String / Object / Ext.app.ViewController

defaultListenerScope : Boolean

If true, this component will be the default scope (this pointer) for events specified with string names so that the scope can be dynamically resolved. The component will automatically become the defaultListenerScope if a controller is specified.

See the introductory docs for Ext.container.Container for some sample usages.

NOTE: This value can only be reliably set at construction time. Setting it after that time may not correctly rewire all of the potentially effected listeners.

Defaults to:

false

getDefaultListenerScope : Boolean

Returns the value of defaultListenerScope

Returns

Boolean

setDefaultListenerScope (defaultListenerScope)

Sets the value of defaultListenerScope

Parameters

defaultListenerScope :  Boolean

publishes : String / String[] / Object

One or more names of config properties that this component should publish to its ViewModel. Generally speaking, only properties defined in a class config block (including ancestor config blocks and mixins) are eligible for publishing to the viewModel. Some components override this and publish their most useful configs by default.

Note: We'll discuss publishing properties not found in the config block below.

Values determined to be invalid by component (often form fields and model validations) will not be published to the ViewModel.

This config uses the cfg-reference to determine the name of the data object to place in the ViewModel. If reference is not set then this config is ignored.

By using this config and cfg-reference you can bind configs between components. For example:

 ...
     items: [{
         xtype: 'textfield',
         reference: 'somefield',  // component's name in the ViewModel
         publishes: 'value' // value is not published by default
     },{
         ...
     },{
         xtype: 'displayfield',
         bind: 'You have entered "{somefield.value}"'
     }]
 ...

Classes must provide this config as an Object:

 Ext.define('App.foo.Bar', {
     publishes: {
         foo: true,
         bar: true
     }
 });

This is required for the config system to properly merge values from derived classes.

For instances this value can be specified as a value as show above or an array or object as follows:

 {
     xtype: 'textfield',
     reference: 'somefield',
     publishes: [
         'value',
         'rawValue',
         'dirty'
     ]
 }

 // This achieves the same result as the above array form.
 {
     xtype: 'textfield',
     reference: 'somefield',
     publishes: {
         value: true,
         rawValue: true,
         dirty: true
     }
 }

In some cases, users may want to publish a property to the viewModel that is not found in a class config block. In these situations, you may utilize publishState if the property has a setter method. Let's use setFieldLabel as an example:

  setFieldLabel: function(fieldLabel) {
      this.callParent(arguments);
      this.publishState('fieldLabel', fieldLabel);
  }

With the above chunk of code, fieldLabel may now be published to the viewModel.

Defaults to:

null

Available since: 5.0.0

getPublishes : String / String[] / Object

Returns the value of publishes

Returns

String / String[] / Object

setPublishes (publishes)

Sets the value of publishes

Parameters

publishes :  String / String[] / Object

reference : String

Specifies a name for this component inside its component hierarchy. This name must be unique within its view or its Ext.app.ViewController. See the documentation in Ext.container.Container for more information about references.

Note: Valid identifiers start with a letter or underscore and are followed by zero or more additional letters, underscores or digits. References are case sensitive.

Defaults to:

null

getReference : String

Returns the value of reference

Returns

String

setReference (reference)

Sets the value of reference

Parameters

reference :  String

session : Boolean / Object / Ext.data.Session

If provided this creates a new Session instance for this component. If this is a Container, this will then be inherited by all child components.

To create a new session you can specify true:

 Ext.create({
     xtype: 'viewport',
     session: true,

     items: [{
         ...
     }]
 });

Alternatively, a config object can be provided:

 Ext.create({
     xtype: 'viewport',
     session: {
         ...
     },

     items: [{
         ...
     }]
 });

Defaults to:

null

getSession : Boolean / Object / Ext.data.Session

Returns the value of session

Returns

Boolean / Object / Ext.data.Session

setSession (session)

Sets the value of session

Parameters

session :  Boolean / Object / Ext.data.Session

twoWayBindable : String / String[] / Object

This object holds a map of config properties that will update their binding as they are modified. For example, value is a key added by form fields. The form of this config is the same as publishes.

This config is defined so that updaters are not created and added for all bound properties since most cannot be modified by the end-user and hence are not appropriate for two-way binding.

Defaults to:

null

getTwoWayBindable : String / String[] / Object

Returns the value of twoWayBindable

Returns

String / String[] / Object

setTwoWayBindable (twoWayBindable)

Sets the value of twoWayBindable

Parameters

twoWayBindable :  String / String[] / Object

viewModel : String / Object / Ext.app.ViewModel

The ViewModel is a data provider for this component and its children. The data contained in the ViewModel is typically used by adding bind configs to the components that want present or edit this data.

When set, the ViewModel is created and links to any inherited viewModel instance from an ancestor container as the "parent". The ViewModel hierarchy, once established, only supports creation or destruction of children. The parent of a ViewModel cannot be changed on the fly.

If this is a root-level ViewModel, the data model connection is made to this component's associated Ext.data.Session. This is determined by calling getInheritedSession.

Defaults to:

null

getViewModel : String / Object / Ext.app.ViewModel

Returns the value of viewModel

Returns

String / Object / Ext.app.ViewModel

setViewModel (viewModel)

Sets the value of viewModel

Parameters

viewModel :  String / Object / Ext.app.ViewModel

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

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

defaultBindProperty : String
protected pro

This property is used to determine the property of a bind config that is just the value. For example, if defaultBindProperty="value", then this shorthand bind config:

 bind: '{name}'

Is equivalent to this object form:

 bind: {
     value: '{name}'
 }

The defaultBindProperty is set to "value" for form fields and to "store" for grids and trees.

Defaults to:

null

destroyed : Boolean
protected pro

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

Defaults to:

false

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

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'

Defaults to:

Base

validRefRe : RegExp
private pri

Regular expression used for validating reference values.

Defaults to:

/^[a-z_][a-z0-9_]*$/i

Static Properties

$onExtended
static sta private pri

Defaults to:

private pri

Transforms a ViewModel config to a proper instance.

Available since: 5.0.0

Parameters

viewModel :  String/Object/Ext.app.ViewModel

Returns

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

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.

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.

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.

hasConfig ( name )
private pri

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

     }
 });

 var kitty = new My.awesome.Cat();
 kitty.meow();

Parameters

members :  Object

The members to add to this class.

isStatic :  Boolean (optional)

Pass `true` if the members are static.

Defaults to: false

privacy :  Boolean (optional)

:

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

Add / override static properties of this class.

Ext.define('My.cool.Class', {
    ...
});

My.cool.Class.addStatics({

    method1: function() { ... },    // My.cool.Class.method1 = function() { ... };
    method2: function() { ... }     // My.cool.Class.method2 = function() { ... };
});

Parameters

        alert('$$$$$$$');
    }
});

Ext.define('Thief', {
    ...
});

Thief.borrow(Bank, ['money', 'printMoney']);

var steve = new Thief();

alert(steve.money); // alerts '$$$'
steve.printMoney(); // alerts '$$$$$$$'

    someConfig: true
});

All parameters are passed to the constructor of the class.

Returns

:Object
the created instance.

createAlias ( alias, origin )
static sta

Create aliases for existing prototype methods. Example:

Ext.define('My.cool.Class', {
    method1: function() { ... },
    method2: function() { ... }
});

var test = new My.cool.Class();

My.cool.Class.createAlias({
    method3: 'method1',
    method4: 'method2'
});

test.method3(); // test.method1()

My.cool.Class.createAlias('method5', 'method3');

test.method5(); // test.method3() -> test.method1()

Parameters

alias :  String/Object

The new method name, or an object to set multiple aliases. See flexSetter

origin :  String/Object

The original method name

extend ( parentClass )
static sta private pri

Parameters

parentClass :  Object

getConfigurator Ext.Configurator
static sta private pri

Returns the Ext.Configurator for this class.

Returns

:Ext.Configurator

getName String
static sta

Get the current class' name in string format.

Ext.define('My.cool.Class', {
    constructor: function() {
        alert(this.self.getName()); // alerts 'My.cool.Class'
    }
});

My.cool.Class.getName(); // 'My.cool.Class'

Returns

:String
className

mixin ( name, mixinClass ) :
chainable ch static sta private pri

Used internally by the mixins pre-processor

Parameters

name :  Object

mixinClass :  Object

Returns

:

onExtended ( fn, scope ) :
chainable ch static sta private pri

Parameters

fn :  Object

scope :  Object

Returns

:

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).

Parameters

members :  Object

The properties to add to this class. This should be specified as an object literal containing one or more properties.

Returns

:Ext.Base
this class
