View Full Version : [CLOSED] Bug with rendering GXT Button inside table with TableItem.setWidget()

15 May 2008, 7:03 AM
This bug is occuring in GXT Beta2:

If you try the test code below, you will see that a GWT Button renders fine within a table cell but a GXT Button does not.

import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.Style;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.Viewport;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.layout.FlowLayout;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.table.RowSelectionModel;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.table.Table;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.table.TableColumn;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.table.TableColumnModel;
import com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.table.TableItem;
import com.google.gwt.core.client.EntryPoint;
import com.google.gwt.user.client.ui.RootPanel;

public class TestTableWidgetAlign implements EntryPoint {
public void onModuleLoad() {
Viewport viewport = new Viewport();
viewport.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

TableColumn[] columns = new TableColumn[1];
columns[0] = new TableColumn("Widget", 100);

TableColumnModel<TableColumn> columnModel = new TableColumnModel<TableColumn>(columns);

Table<RowSelectionModel> table = new Table<RowSelectionModel>(columnModel);

TableItem item1 = new TableItem(new Object[1]);
item1.setWidget(0, new com.google.gwt.user.client.ui.Button("GWT")); // NOTE: GWT Button - Renders fine within the table

TableItem item2 = new TableItem(new Object[1]);
item2.setWidget(0, new com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.Button("GXT")); // NOTE: GXT Button - *DOES NOT* render within the table

viewport.add(new com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.Button("GXT2")); // This GXT Button renders fine outside of the table

I came across another thread where Darrell suggested setting "bulk render" to false. I tried this with the example above and it resolved the problem. Although this kind of behavior is clearly non-intuitive to the GXT user.

A runtime exception will now be thrown if you add widgets and have bulk rendering enabled.

Thanks Darrell. Some mention of the connection between the bulk reader mode and the setWidget method in the javadoc would be nice as well.
