    Lightbulb Ext Visuals and Graphics

    Ext Visuals and Graphics


    Hello everyone!
    I'm new to Ext, but in my couple weeks of learning I've found a distinct lack of visuals that can explain Ext to a newbie quickly, and I thought I might contribute to the forum with regards to this.

    1.) Are there any good visuals anywhere, and am I just not finding them?

    2.) What kinds of visuals do you think would be useful?

    2.) Finally, your thoughts are about the following visuals: ExtVisualsandGraphics

    Wat lack of visuals are you referring to? As I see it, EXT has pretty good styling applied to it ... Could you be more clear in your question?

    @flaminpheonix, when I mean visuals I don't mean Exts layout/UI manager, I meant somehting that explained how ext's code library was laid out

    for example, here is one someone made for Ext 1.1 :

    perhaps to learn about hierarchy? Either way, it's easy to determine with a few clicks in the API. People love pretty though.

    it's useful for a linear view but not for multiple classes, etc.

    this is why i placed this fugly thing in Ext js in action.
