View Full Version : Navigation View MVC example

18 Dec 2011, 9:24 AM
Hi there,

is there any best practice for Ext.navigation.View in MVC architecture?
I'm wondering if anybody has a good example at github for example?

We have done some work with NavigationView and MVC (Have a look at the webcams part in particular). Not sure if it is the good way of doing it.


NB: this is just a proof-of-concept.

Hi Martin, thank you for sharing your code. By any chance have you tried your app in phonegap? I amd developing for phonegap, I have an MVC app, and it was working fine as with a Container at the viewport level. But I need to add Search capability, so I thought, "ok, i should probably factor things out one level so that the current top level container becomes one item in a navigation.View and then search can be another item in the navigation.View.

However, when I tried the minimalist approach of just changing my top view from Container to navigation.View, I just get a blank screen. So I am beginning to wonder if there might be some phonegap specific issues at work.

to followup on my own question. It seems that having this code was giving me the white screen

config: {
fullscreen: true,
layout: 'fit',

That code is harmless at worst for a Container, but it seems it is a toxic combination for navigation.View. If I remove the layout: 'fit' , my view appears.

I didn't try our application with PhoneGap, but thanks for your feedback!
