    Default Slicer tool?

    Slicer tool?


    @edspencer Thank you for clarifying this. I've read that theming guide a number of times, but it doesn't go into much depth.

    Question:
    I'm working on a custom theme that uses a special background image for active tabs. I sliced the background image myself, then to override the default CSS for tabs I added my own CSS for modern browsers, and then overrode that CSS with IE-specific CSS activated by conditional comments. This is pretty much how I've always done theming in Ext JS.

    Am I doing it the hard way? Would the slicer tool save me a lot of this effort?

    Performance on my system of the neptune example is poor.

    I'm running an overclocked i7 with a very fast NVIDIA graphics card and 8G
    and I'm watching it slowly redraw on FF 7. Icons (in the tree, etc) dont
    seem to appear.

    If performance of neptune is worse than the current default theme, I would
    focus on improving the default.

    Interesting. The Kitchen Sink demo does seem to struggle in FF7. For what it's worth, it works fine in Chrome and performance is really good.

    I ran some tests a few days ago comparing the performance of an app with the default theme vs the Neptune theme. It didn't seem to make any difference in the browsers I tried but I'm not sure FF was one of them.

    Default Kitchen sink demo won't run on IE8

    Kitchen sink demo won't run on IE8


    Loading http://dev.sencha.com/deploy/ext-4.1-pr1/examples/kitchensink/index.html into IE8 results in:

    'undefined' is null or not an object all-classes.js, line 17844 character 17

    Does this run for anyone else on IE8?

    Just checked and yes it does run fast in Chrome. FF7 is really slow though, it looks
    like something is not totally right because the icons dont appear in the tree on the
    left. It takes seconds to respond to a click on the examples tree.

    Same problem in FF8.

    Should we expect any more preview releases or betas before 4.1 is released?
