These will have to be added via an override.

Architect's canvas does not have your custom code loaded in and therefore cannot render it.

We are working on user extensions which will allow you to load user code into Architect's canvas down the line.

The problem is that my grid panel (in my project) is in a tab of a tabpanel and so my entire component isn't visible anymore. I can't view or modify my popup with the designer. To do that, I must remove the "features" custom property, modify the popup and re-add the property...

I tried to add the "features" property at execution time in gridpanel's beforerender event :

abstractcomponent.features = [

ftype: "filters",

encode: false,

local: false,

filters: []


or like this:

features: [


ftype: "filters",

encode: false,

local: false,

filters: []



...but it does nothing. In Chrome console I see that the property is well added to my gridpanel but the columns headers don't have the filter option...Maybe something is missing ?

Any way to perform that at execution time to allow me designing with Architect my component and also have the filter option enabled for execution ?

Thanks 8-|
