View Full Version : Updating the totalProperty of the pagination bar

24 Nov 2010, 11:25 PM
Hi All,

I am using Ext Js for my project and I have a scenario which need to add records to the grid. So, when a new record is added to the grid, I need to update the pagination bar accordingly. For Example "Displaying Record 1 -5 of 25 ".

However, in my scenario, it does not change the total records and the display the message as"Displaying Record 1 -1 of 0"

Following is my code sample.

// Message Reader
var messageReader = new Ext.data.JsonReader({
totalProperty: 'totalCount',
}, Ext.data.Record.create([
{name: 'messageId'},
{name: 'message'},


// Message Store
var messageStore = new Ext.data.GroupingStore({
proxy: new Ext.data.HttpProxy({
reader: messageReader,
sortInfo:{field: 'messageId', direction: "DESC"},
remoteSort: true

bbar: new Ext.PagingToolbar({
displayInfo: true,
displayMsg: 'Displaying Records {0} - {1} of {2}',
store: messageStore,
pageSize: 20,
plugins: messageFilters,
emptyMsg: 'No Records to display'

doLoad : function(start) {
var selected = 1;
for (var i = 0; i < Ext.getCmp('receiver_message').items.length; i++) {
if (Ext.getCmp('receiver_message').items.items[i].checked) {
selected = Ext.getCmp('receiver_message').items.items[i].value;
var o = {}, pn = this.getParams();
o[pn.start] = start;
o[pn.limit] = this.pageSize;

if (this.fireEvent('beforechange', this, o) !== false) {
this.store.load({params:{start:start, limit:this.pageSize, message:Ext.getCmp('message_content').getValue(),
sendto:selected, locale:Ext.getCmp('language_message').getValue()}});

// Certain listeners defined here


I am adding data to the grid using the following function.

function loadMessageDataToGrid(id, message) {
var recordDataMessage = Ext.data.Record.create([
{name: 'messageId'},
{name: 'message'}
messageStore.add(new recordDataMessage({
messageId: id,
message: message,


Please advice me how to update the record count when adding new records.

I would appreciate if someone can guide me to solve this problem. Thanks in advance.

My PagingStore user extensions also contains an extended PagingToolbar that handles totalLength changes.

Hi Condor,
Thank you very much for your information. I manage to solve the problem by adding the following code to the function called "loadMessageDataToGrid".
messageStore.totalLength = messageStore.getTotalCount() + 1;

this was in one of your previous posts.

Thank you very much for your help.
