    Default Referencing the application instance in a View

    Referencing the application instance in a View


    Hi,

    Under PR3 I was able to set a global variable for my Application instance so I could reference it from functions defined in some of my views.

    So for example, in my Application launch function I could do:

    Code:
    MyAppName.app = this;
    And then in a function in my view I could then get to some other globals defined in my Application class such as:

    Code:
    MyAppName.app.selectedUntID
    But MyAppName.app is coming up as undefined for me in PR4 now. I know I get an 'application' variable in the Controller class, can I achieve this in my View classes?

    We have a rule with our Sencha MVC development that views know nothing about controllers (and application is a controller). In your case I would make a singleton class that views/controllers/application can all access. The alternative would be for your view to fire a custom event that the application listens to and makes the changes.

    Ok, I must be coding this in a poor way....

    In my application class I am defining some globals like so:

    Code:
    Ext.application({
    		name: 'MyApp',
    		controllers: ['Login','MainView','Unit','GMap','History', 'Preferences', 'HistoryCriteria','LogoutAction'],
    		models: ['UserPreferences','TrackingList','CurrentGrid','History','Journey', 'Placemarker'],
    		stores: ['UserPreferences','TrackingListWithShowAll','TrackingList','CurrentGrid','History','Journey', 'Placemarkers'],
    		userIsLoggedIn: false,
    		wsClient:null,
    		loginWin: null,
    		loadMask: null,
    		sessionDataLoaded: false,
    		waitingForSessionCheckResponse: false,
    		launch: function() {
    		
    		....
    From what your saying, I should probably have any globals reside in this singleton class correct?

    I like the idea of a singleton for global application data. Our application classes are pretty dumb mainly defining name, controllers, and launch.

    I think keeping the architecture clean is a good goal. However, it is not clear how to accomplish some tasks such as firing an event from a view to a controller. I'm still using the following hack to do this.

    The listener is defined in the controller:
    Code:
    this.getApplication().on({
        geocoded: function(){console.log("geocode event fired");},
        ...
    });
    I need to fire the event from the view. However, views don't know about applications, so I have to use a global variable.
    Code:
    globals.application.fireEvent('geocoded');
    What is the recommended approach to firing application events from views?

    Thanks

    How did you define your globals variable so the rest of the app could see it?

    I just used the app namespace. This is not a great idea, but it is an easy workaround to some of the object reference issues.

    MyApp.globals (or whatever you like that won't result in a namespace collision)

    Views should never access an application. They should only fire events and the controllers should react to those events.
