View Full Version : Reader looks for 'children' root when updating TreeStore Model and receiving response

6 Nov 2011, 10:51 AM

I have a TreeStore with a Model defined. The Model uses JSON rest/ajax proxy. Now what I am trying to accomplish:

1. Read whole tree - OK:


2. Update a single record (Model) from the loaded TreeStore - OK:

record.set('text', 'xxx')

3. Save the record.

The record is sent to the server. It is a single resource modification so if everything goes ok, server returns the saved record serialized to JSON, again - single resource, not array:


And the reader for the TreeStore Model tries to read the response. If the response were an array
[{id:1...}], there would be no problem. The reader would take that array and later on it would take the first item in the array - our serialized modified resource. But since the response is a single serialized resource, it tries to apply additional logic according to the "reader.root" config

src/data/reader/Reader.js, 305:

var root = Ext.isArray(data) ? data : me.getRoot(data)

I did not specified any root config for the TreeStore Model reader but since this is a TreeStore reader, the root config was given a value children by ext.

So the reader tries to getRoot, which is a regex processing function looking for the root element (children), which of course fails, so no records are returned to the model save operation callback and the javascript throws a null reference error in the model save function:


record = operation.getRecords()[0];

I don't think there is an easy fix for this, b/c it seems more like a conceptal error.

Thank you in advance for statement regarding this issue.
