View Full Version : Grid as input for HTML form

18 Dec 2013, 5:51 AM
It's quite simple to use ExtJS field as input in HTML form, something like this:

<form action="dummy.php" method="get">
<div id='div1'></div>
Ext.create( 'Ext.form.TextField', {
value:'default value',
<input type=submit value="Ok">

If I place a simple grid instead of TextField no variables are submitted.
I've tried to enable selection possibility (selType and SelModel) and got checkboxes
as first column but perhaps further configs are needed to make grid act as input?
I would like to submit value from particular column and selected rows.
Is there a possibility to use ExtJS grid as input for a HTML form?

That is a lot of overhead, why not just a form layout?
I guess the other alternative would be to have a button that commits the dirty grid cells?

in my case there is a HTML form with many non-ExtJS input fields and I can't change it at the moment.
One of inputs is a table with checkbox'es and could be replaced with a ExtJS grid
(it has a lot of columns and grid looks better as combo).
My goal is to replace a HTML table with ExtJS grid and forward the keys of selected rows
together with other inputs to the HTML form.
So the question is: can ExtJS grid act as input in HTML form?

Not that I am aware of.

For my purpose I've resolved it without ExtJS selection model and rendering <input> as cell content:

Ext.create('Ext.grid.Panel', {
columns: [
{ dataIndex: 'selector_checkbox',
renderer: function(val){
return('<input type="checkbox" id='+val+' name='+val+' value=x>');
text: 'Selector'
