View Full Version : Suspend/resume events help

1 Jun 2011, 6:33 AM
Hi guys,

I have an event listener on "change" for a radiogroup. The radio group is inside a form, into which i load some data with setValues().

How can i suspend the change event for the radiogroup when i load setValues() on the form.

I've tried to suspendEvents() before i use form.setValues() and then call resumeEvents() again but it doesn't seem to work.

Am i doing something wrong?

The approach you've described sounds correct. Are you calling suspectEvents() on the right object (i.e. the RadioGroup)? Any code you could post to give us more insight into what you're doing?

Thanks for the quick reply!

the radiogroup

xtype: 'fieldset',
width: 160,
x: 160,
items: [{
ref: '../../../../payment_type',
xtype: 'radiogroup',
hideLabel: true,
items: [{
xtype: 'radio',
name: 'payment_type',
boxLabel: 'Type 1',
inputValue: 1,
checked: true,
anchor: '95%'
xtype: 'radio',
name: 'payment_type',
boxLabel: 'Type 2',
inputValue: 2
listeners: {
change : function(group, checked){
scope: this

the function that loads data in the form

loadData : function(dataToLoad){

The payment_type radiogroup is inside the formAddEdit form.

I'm sure i'm calling suspendEvents correctly because if i don't, my radiogroup change event won't be triggered anymore.

It's like setValues() on the form works asynchronus.

Looks like you're correct, the change event is fired asynchronously for a RadioGroup. When the check event is fired on a radio button it calls a method called fireChecked() on the RadioGroup. This creates a DelayedTask which calls bufferChecked() on a 10ms delay. This fires the change event.

This is a nuisance. The easiest way I could find to work around this was to suspend events on each of the individual radio buttons. This stops the check event firing, which prevents any of the above happening.

Thanks for digging into the code. Suspending the events on the radio buttons solved the issue.
