View Full Version : [FIXED-180] DataStore ArrayStore data saving as string, not array

12 Jul 2010, 9:48 AM
Windows 7 Pro.

Create an ArrayStore.
Add to "data" this string... [[0,'a'],[1,'b]]
I would assume 2 records but it is saving as a string, not an array.
So when I "Load Data" it says "16 records loaded"

Hi Artistan,

When the object or array editors cannot evaluate an entry for any reason (syntax error, object undefined, etc.) then it will translate it into a string automatically verbatim. I believe the data is storing as a string because you are missing a single-quote after "b". So when that is evaluated, it fails because of a syntax error and then instead stores it as a string. Just add a single-quote after the "b" and it will be good to go.

I added the quote after that, and still no good, "17 records loaded"
I just did that quick test because it is not working in another project I am working on. to large to post.

It works for me: http://clip2net.com/clip/m50071/1278958312-clipi31510-95kb.png

But with that said, the # of records loaded is showing an incorrect number. However, the data is actually loaded as 2 records. So I will open a ticket to solve the incorrect number that shows after the data is loaded.

Thanks for reporting this!

Attached updated test.
When trying to preview a combo box with the ArrayStore data, preview does not work.

Yes, it's true.
Also, why we can't set the data [array] directly in the 'store' config of the combobox? It will be very usefull, no need for arraystore definition.

The ArrayStore is VERY useful for me. Allows reuse in multiple areas of the same store.

yes if this is the case but will be usefull to have the other way too

We don't/can't support hybrid configurations at the moment, although we could make the store config an "object" type, and you could either supply a string or an object/array of static data. So while we could make it work for this particular case, in general, a lot of "Mixed" configuration types are hard to do.

I encourage making this a feature request of course. I think it would be good.
