View Full Version : RowEditing with a textarea - how can the user enter a newline?

13 Dec 2011, 10:46 PM
The RowEditor grid plugin captures the enter key as part of its processing, but I want my user to be able to edit the text in a "textarea" field. When they press "enter" to enter a newline the RowEditor thinks they want to perform an update.

How I can I configure RowEditor so that a textarea will work correctly?

Looking at the source code for Ext.grid.RowEditor in version 4.0.7 it looks like this behavior is unfortunately hard coded.

You can add the following to your textarea field:

listeners: {
afterrender: function() {

This way any key press event inside the textarea will not bubble up.
