    Default Set an empty text to grid if store has an exception

    Set an empty text to grid if store has an exception


    Hi.

    I've got the panel
    Code:
    Ext.create('Ext.grid.Panel', {
        title: 'Simpsons',
        store: Ext.data.StoreManager.lookup('simpsonsStore'),
        columns: [{
            text: 'Name',
            dataIndex: 'name'
        },
        {
            text: 'Email',
            dataIndex: 'email',
            flex: 1
        },
        {
            text: 'Phone',
            dataIndex: 'phone'
        }],
        height: 200,
        width: 400,
        renderTo: Ext.getBody(),
        viewConfig: {
            emptyText: 'Something is wrong'
        }
    });
    And the store:
    Code:
    Ext.create('Ext.data.Store', {
        storeId: 'simpsonsStore',
        fields: ['name', 'email', 'phone'],
        data: {
            'items': [{
                'name': 'Lisa',
                "email": "lisa@simpsons.com",
                "phone": "555-111-1224"
            },
            {
                'name': 'Bart',
                "email": "bart@simpsons.com",
                "phone": "555-222-1234"
            },
            {
                'name': 'Homer',
                "email": "home@simpsons.com",
                "phone": "555-222-1244"
            },
            {
                'name': 'Marge',
                "email": "marge@simpsons.com",
                "phone": "555-222-1254"
            }]
        },
        proxy: {
            type: 'memory',
            reader: {
                type: 'json',
                root: 'items'
            }
        },
        url: 'StoreUrl',
        listeners: {
            exception: function(proxy, response, operation) {
                Ext.Msg.show({
                    title: 'Exception',
                    msg: response.statusText + response.status,
                    buttons: Ext.Msg.OK,
                    icon: Ext.Msg.ERROR
                });
            }
        }
    });
    I want to set an emptyText (or just show it) when 'exception' is fired. Is it possible?

    The view will listen to the load event of the store and if the store has zero records in it it will show the emptyText. It may listen to datachanged, not 100% on that without looking.

    I add a listener through store proxy events and it works:
    Code:
    this.store.proxy.on('exception', function (proxy, response, operation) {
    	me.emptyText = 'Error: ' + response.statusText + '<br/>Code: ' + response.status;
    	me.view.loadMask.hide();
    });‚Äč
    But the emptyText doesn't appear. Why?

    Ok. The EmptyText doesn't appear because I've got dirty data. So, I just add a dummy row and then remove all rows. Not a good code, but it's working.
    Code:
    this.store.proxy.on('exception', function (proxy, response, operation) {
                if (autoUpdateTask)
                    Ext.TaskManager.stop(autoUpdateTask);
                me.emptyText = 'Error: ' + response.statusText + '<br/>Code: ' + response.status;
                if (me.items.items[0]) {
                    me.items.items[0].store.add({});
                    me.items.items[0].store.removeAll();
                }
                me.view.loadMask.hide();
    });
    I need one little step to update emptyText from default to custom.

    Done!
    Code:
    		this.store.proxy.on('exception', function (proxy, response, operation) {
    			if (autoUpdateTask)
    				Ext.TaskManager.stop(autoUpdateTask);
    			var emptyText = 'Error: ' + response.statusText + '<br/>Code: ' + response.status;
    			me.view.emptyText = '<div class="x-grid-empty">' + emptyText + '</div>';
    			if (me.items.items[0]) {
    				me.items.items[0].store.add({});
    				me.items.items[0].store.removeAll();
    			}
    			me.view.loadMask.hide();
    		});

    Default Here is the actual solution

    Here is the actual solution


    Grid view is not ready at the time we apply text with me.getView().refresh() so that's reason following works as the private method me.getView().applyFirstRefresh() internally having defer for view to get ready.
    Please try this....

    me.getView().emptyText = 'Test Comment';
    me.getView().applyFirstRefresh();
