    Unanswered: new Ext.Button(config) versus Ext.create('Ext.Button', config)


    I have another best practices question. Say I'm creating a button dynamically one of two ways:

    Code:
    var b = new Ext.Button(config);
    
    var b = Ext.create('Ext.Button', config)
    Since I'm creating both immediately, it's not a question of lazy instantiation. I'm also not using xtypes but specific class names ("Ext.Button"). Is there a best practice on which of these two methods to use? I see Ext.create does a whole bunch of stuff, though a lot of it is to allow you to use something other than straight-up class names. I'm not sure what else it does that might be important.

    Best practices is to use Ext.create but I always use the new keyword as it is going to be more performant as you described Ext.create is doing some extra things to make sure the class is loaded. You just have to make sure you know the class is already loaded if you are going to use the new keyword.
