View Full Version : Ext.fly to highlight a cell after that the original cell line & color not restore?

19 Jun 2011, 11:12 PM
Hi, i am using ExtJS 3.2.1 Grid
I use below code to highlight a cell in an ExtJS grid

Ext.fly(TargetCell, "ID").highlight("CCFF33", {attr: "background-color",duration: 5});

It works well except that after highlight the cell will not return to original color and even the cell line were gone. Illustrated in below images, notice the second row Pending changed to Sold then the row line and background color became white

Before Highlight


After Highlight

Any idea how to fix this? Thanks!

var cell = grid.getView().getCell(7,9);
Ext.fly(cell).highlight("CCFF33", {attr: "background-color",duration: 5});

I don't have 3.2.1 but I've tried on 3.2.0 and 3.2.2 grid examples without problem.

replace the array-grid.js in examples/grid
