    Default Unanswered: How to create custom events and listen to them?

    Unanswered: How to create custom events and listen to them?


    Hi,

    I have a Controller A which has a store S listening to a load event.
    When the load event fires I throw a custom event

    this.fireEvent('customEvent');

    In a Controller B config method I set up a button listening to this event.

    Code:
    buttonButton: {           	 
                	 'customEvent': function() {
                		 console.log('custom EVENT');
                	 }
                 }
    The store correctly fires the event but the button doesn't react to it.

    Are you using the fireEvent on the button or is the button listening to the event?

    Currently I fire the event from the store. The button listens to the event by setting it up in a controllers init method.


    Code:
    this.control({
                 button: {     	 
                	 'myOrdersLoaded': function() {
                		 console.log('custom EVENT');
                	 }
                 }
    		 });

    Ok but the button won't know about it. The button needs to directly set a listener onto the store and fire the event on itself
