View Full Version : beforecomplete event not firing on combobox editor

5 Nov 2013, 3:08 PM
I'm dynamically creating a grid, and for the life of me I can't get the "beforecomplete" event to fire.

Here's where I create the columns - am I doing something wrong?

xtype: 'gridcolumn',
text: myText,
dataIndex: 'RESULT_' + record.data.SUBTEST_ID,
sortable: false,
hideable: false,
width: colWidth,
renderer: mySTRenderer,
editor: {
xtype: 'combobox',
store: editorStore,
valueField: 'abbr',
displayField: 'name',
triggerAction: 'all',
listeners : {
beforecomplete : function(field, newVal, oldVal) {
field.up('grid').fireEvent("gridCellChanging", field, newVal, oldVal);

I even tried just setting the function to simply alert, and the alert didn't fire. Any assistance welcome... Note that a "change" event *will* fire here, but I need to catch the changes before anything is written to the model.

I guess I was having a blond day, and I need to use events for the combobox. However, I can't seem to find one that allows me to get between changing the value on the screen and changing it in the model. Any suggestions for what I'm missing?

You may be interested in validateedit (http://docs.sencha.com/extjs/4.2.2/#!/api/Ext.grid.plugin.Editing-event-validateedit) event. (Note, it is fired not only on a plugin, but on a grid too)
