View Full Version : [CLOSED] Ext.form.Panel misses buttons config

6 Feb 2012, 6:07 AM
The buttons config is missing in the component config listing.
Adding a custom config option called 'buttons' as a workaround doesn't work either because the value is set as string.

This happens with the beta version 2.0.0 build 268.

This is/was intentional. However, the buttons configuration is no longer marked as deprecated. http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-0/#!/api/Ext.panel.Panel-cfg-buttons

I will check with the Ext JS framework team to see if it will stick around. That being said a better way of doing this is by placing a Toolbar in as a dockedItem, setting the dock config to 'bottom' and the ui to 'footer'.

On a different note, when adding custom configurations the designer will automatically assume that it is a string unless you denote to it that it will be some other sort of object. If you put in "buttons: []" and then clicked add you would see that it would create the buttons configuration as an array instead of a string.

Thanks for the infos Aaron!
Please highlight this feature for custom configurations in the UI somehow, maybe with a dropdown between config key and add button which defaults to string and has an array and hash option too.

You might consider changing the examples such as "simple form" to use this approach. Also note that Architect does not support 'component', you have to use a container.
