How to Create Grid with: Grouping + Summary + Expander Rows in Ext Designer?
I wish Ext Designer had the capability to import existing Ext JS HTML/JS document sets, and convert those to an .XDS project file. This would make learning much easier for those of us who learn by example/reverse engineering. If all of the Ext JS examples had accompanying .XDS files, that would be a good start. Anyways... on to my post:
Could someone provide some step by step assistance about how to create a Grid with;
-Grouping of Rows(/products/extjs/examples/grid/groupgrid.html)
Any help would be appreciated.
I actually need a .XDS template that contains a single Grid with all of the following included:
-Column Grouping (/products/extjs/examples/grid/groupgrid.html)
-Command/Shift Select of Records(/products/extjs/examples/grid/list-view.html)
-Display # of Records Selected(/products/extjs/examples/grid/list-view.html)
-Drag & Drop Records into New Grid(/products/extjs/examples/dd/dnd_grid_to_grid.html)
-Field Error Checking(/products/extjs/examples/writer/writer.html)
Connect(PHP) the Grid to a PostgreSQL database.
Create an optimized build of the app using the SDK.
I am not sure where in this forum to post 'programmer solicitations', but I would much rather pay someone to create this Grid template and deliver it to me in an .XDS file, then struggle through the process myself, so any advise would be welcomed.
I visited http://jobs.extjs.com/ but unfortunately there is no way to post a job there.
Thanks for your response...
I have been using Ext Designer for several days now, and on OS X it is extremely buggy. I have to frequently exit and reenter the application in order to refresh the content or shake a problem that seems frozen/not willing to go away.
Although I appreciate the effort that has thus far gone into the software, it seems they have missed the boat in a number of areas. Missing features like nested columns, grouping, etc., are rather glaring, and the manner in which the toolbox items are organized makes things a bit tough initially, but not being able to open/import an HTML/JS set is just a downright bummer. I am learning both Ext Js and Ext Designer, so its a bit daunting, especially when Ext Designer displays inaccurate visuals(which is why I have to exit and reenter the app), this causes a lot of second guessing when dealign with problems... not sure if its something I did, or Ext Designer being buggy(or both).
Also, another thing I think is missing is off-the-shelf connectors to MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc., because most people who are venturing into Ext JS territory are doing so because they need a better UI with which to manage their data, data that is likely stored in either a PostgreSQL database, or more common, a MySQL database(or at least provide these for those whom purchase a license, as is the case with some Ext JS competitors).
All in all, I'm figuring things out... but will not do so before my 15 day license expires... which is another gripe... they should at least provide a 30 day trial license, and all things considered(learning Ext JS), it should likely be a 45 to 60 day license.
