View Full Version : ComboBox Query Question

I have a form which displays a ComboBox. The ComboBox is associated with a remote data store. The combo box is supposed to query the store for a set of records which are available in the current editing context. It's possible that no records will be returned. If no records are returned, I want to disable/change some fields on my form. I've come up with a way to deal with this situation by using a customized Store which fires an event when the query yields no results, but I'm wondering if there is a better way to deal with this situation.

I've looked at the various events available to ComboBox and I'm not seeing one that would help. What I think I want (but I'm open to other ideas) is to somehow know when the combo box query has completed so I can see if it has returned any records. If there aren't any records, I could adjust my form fields accordingly.

Can anyone offer any suggestions (or pointers to existing threads which might be of help?)

Thanks!

Jim

Add handlers for the combo's store load (and loadexception) events so you can tell what the store got back. Also read the grid FAQ as there are probably a number of things regarding retrieval you may find helpful. http://extjs.com/learn/Ext_FAQ_Grid
