hi everyone,

i see that is really hard to find good documentation, tutorial and other stuff for this version of ext JS 4, i'm really tired of search and search without success, the examples that i found aren't update, i buy the book learning extjs and ext js cook book, but the examples doesn't work on this version , i'm about to give up and move to other framework.

is there any hope for the extjs beginners, something like a sencha 4 for dummies?

I don't believe that there is much out there yet. I believe that's mainly because version 4 is not yet considered "stable" as a release. it still works, but it's not complete. Might be a while (possibly a LONG while) before it's considered stable enough for people to worry about writing example code for it without running a big risk of their code being outdated as soon as they publish it.

i think you find everything you need in the api docs:
t (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-0/#)here are the full code doc, examples, videos and guide.

for me it was enough. maybe it helps you a bit.

The docs and the "learn" section are both good. Not great, but adequate is more the best way to describe it.

The learn section is good, but like the OP has stated, the examples are pretty basic, and a lot of them don't focus on version 4.

The docs are average... at best. Doing my own project here that has really just started, I've found a lot of methods and events that are available, but aren't documented anywhere at all. I'm hoping that this is just because the version hasn't been "finalised" yet, so I've still got some hope left for it to improve. As an example, have a look at Ext.window.Window in the docs. There's a big red note in this class saying "NOTE This is a private utility class for internal use by the framework. Don't rely on its existence.". So, with that in mind, what class would we use to create a window? How would we extend a window when the class for it could be removed in any version? On top of that all of the V. 4 window examples still use this class... It's things like that that are the biggest concerns.

i agree with catacaustic (http://www.sencha.com/forum/member.php?6661-catacaustic), the resources to learn extjs 4 that you guys mention are adequate, but doesn't fill the needs of a "rookie" in this languaje. hope it gets better and a complete guide or dummies book be publish, because extjs 4 is a promising framework.
