Hello..am trying to activate the autocomplete feature of Ext.form.combobx using the following code:

var RecordDef = Ext.data.Record.create([
{name: 'description', mapping: 'description'},
{name: 'lat' , mapping: 'lat'},
{name: 'lng' , mapping:'lng'}
var ds = new Ext.data.Store({
model: 'RecordDef',
proxy: new Ext.data.HttpProxy({url:'geo-multi.xml', method:'GET'}),
reader: new Ext.data.XmlReader({
root : 'geocoderResults',
totalRecords: 'count',
record: 'result'

var timePanel = {
xtype: 'panel',
border: false,
width: 600,
bodyPadding: 10,
layout: 'anchor',

items: [{
xtype: 'combo',
displayField: 'title',
store: ds,
typeAhead: false,
hideLabel: true,
anchor: '100%',
listConfig: {
loadingText: 'Searching...',
emptyText: 'No matching posts found.',

// Custom rendering template for each item
getInnerTpl: function() {
return '<div class="search-item">' +
'<h3><span>{[Ext.Date.format(values.lastPost, "M j, Y")]}<br />by {author}</span>{title}</h3>' +
'{excerpt}' +
pageSize: 10,

xtype: 'component',
style: 'margin-top:16px',
html: 'live search'

The PHP code will need to adjust the header of the response.

Ajax proxy (there technically is no http proxy anymore, it was renamed to ajax) cannot do cross origin requests. JsonP allows the ability to do cross domain requests but requires JSON and a valid JsonP response.
