View Full Version : [CLOSED] ComboBox.select before rendering gives NullPointerException

17 Jun 2008, 9:43 AM
If I try to use method select just after creation ComboBox throws a NullPointerException. For example the next code:

ComboBox comboBox = new ComboBox();

[ERROR] Uncaught exception escaped
java.lang.NullPointerException: null
at com.extjs.gxt.ui.client.widget.form.ComboBox.select(ComboBox.java:351)PS. I have 3 items in the comboBox and it works well without using method select. But I need to select values.

* Select an item in the dropdown list by its numeric index in the list. This
* function does NOT cause the select event to fire. The list must expanded
* for this function to work, otherwise use #setValue.
* @param index the index of the item to select
public void select(int index) {}You most likely want to be using setValue. select should only be used when the list is expanded. I changed the code so that the null pointer will not be thrown.
