View Full Version : Extending in ext 4
31 Oct 2012, 1:43 AM
I know the way we extend has changed in version 4.
But is it a mandatory change?
I mean in my code even if I use old way of extending, it still works in version 4. So I was confused about this

There is more to Ext.define than old-school extending (e.g. using with Ext.Loader, compatibility with MVC) so I highly suggest you upgrade your code.
For more info, please visit Ext.define documentation (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-1/#!/api/Ext-method-define) and Class manager source code (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-1/source/ClassManager.html). Reading the source reveals more than any documentation ;)

I can understand it smiplifies things but is it code-breaking change? As in if we use old way of extending, code would break?

Yes, certain features will break.
Employing coding standards and best practices is the way to go. I cannot encourage you to not use Ext.define, sorry.
