View Full Version : Swipe delete button on dataview list?

20 Apr 2012, 10:14 AM
I'm looking for an example that implements a "swipe activated" delete button on a dataview list -- i.e., swipe left on a list item and a "Delete" button appears; click the button and the list item gets deleted; click anywhere else and the button hides.

Searched high and low and haven't found anything that seems relevant.

The Touch Tweets example features swipe to delete on the entered search queries:
Source code is available in the Sencha Touch SDK download.

Hi, I was just wondering what I have done wrong...
I am posting the relevant parts - I hope so :)

In a view:

xtype: 'panel',
layout: 'fit',
flex: 1,
items: [
xtype: 'list',
id: 'access-guest-dataview',
store: 'AccessGuest',
itemTpl: new Ext.XTemplate(
'<div>{DisplayName} <button style="float: right;" onclick="MyApp.app.getController(\'Reservation\').deletePersonFromAccessList({PersonId})">' + Translations._Delete + '</button></div>'

in a controller:

deletePersonFromAccessList: function (personId) {
var dataview = this.getAccessGuestsDataView();
var store = dataview.getStore();
var data = store.getData().all;
for (var i in data) {
if (data[i].data && data[i].data.PersonId == personId) {

It works on desktop, does not work on mobile devices - when I click on a button, list item is highlighted and nothing happens. It looks like tap event is not fired.

I didn't try touchtweets - first I would like to ask if there is any easy way to fix my solution.

Thanks in advance!

I think this is exactly what you're looking for:

Yeah, it could work... However I've got a small error when I click on delete button. I've got following message:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'isModel' of null sencha-touch-all-debug.js:47839

I have:

Ext.define('MyApp.view.AccessList', {
extend: 'Ext.jsv.DeletableList',

config: {
itemTpl: Ext.create('Ext.XTemplate',
'<p class="delete" style="position: absolute; right: 20px; top: 12px; display: none;">',
'<img src="resources/images/delete.png" alt="delete" />',
store: 'AccessGuests',

deletable: {
storage: true,
message: true,
cls: 'p.delete',
title: 'delete item',
text: 'are you sure?'
...and it does not delete an entry. Moreover store is empty (without any records).

doDeleteItem: function (buttonId) {
if (buttonId === 'yes') {
var store = this.addStore,
storage = this.setting.storage;


if (storage) {

Maybe it has something to do with 'deleteitem' event, does it? I couldn't find that event in Sencha touch 2 documentation.

Thanks for tips!
