View Full Version : Is it possible to get NOT JSON response using Ext.data.Store?

I'm curious is it possible to get not JSON response using 'jsonp' proxy?

Problem: I have to get cross-domain request to the server that returns response as a simple string. Is it possible to use jsonp proxy for this?

here is the code that looks like working, but only for FF and Crome... I can't get it working for IE.

Ext.define('search', {
extend: 'Ext.data.Model',
fields: []

this.store = Ext.create('Ext.data.Store', {
model: 'search',
proxy: {
type: 'jsonp',
root: '',
url: 'some_url_that_return_response_as_text'

does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Here is the error that I get in IE9:

SCRIPT5007: Unable to get value of the property 'id': object is null or undefined
ext-all-debug.js, line 25524 character 17

I suspect that I have to configure Store and Proxy somehow, but have no idea how... can't find any information in documentation...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JSONP -> padding

you can use a different reader for the proxy (xml or whatever), but since you are triggering a JS callback function, it has to be readable for the browser.

Hi Tobias,
thanks for the suggestion, but I still can't understand how I can replace callback function in JSONP proxy with my own one. I only can see 'callbackKey' parameter and nothing for the function name...

could you provide some quick example?

Thanks for the help,

you should be able to specify a reader, like in other proxies:

for the xml-reader, you find configs here (there are other readers in the docs as well)

Ok, looks like it fixed... just changed JSON reader on XML. But still don't understand why it happened that way...

Anyway, thanks for the suggestions and help,
