View Full Version : [SOLVED] columnModel: widthchange event

11 May 2009, 1:43 AM
I am not sure whether it is my fault or it is a bug so I post here.

Grid Example: http://www.extjs.com/deploy/dev/examples/grid/array-grid.html
My adaption adding the 'widthchange' event: http://luzern.nct.ch/ext/example24.html

My problem is that I can't get the widthchange event.

// NOTE: This is an example showing simple state management. During development,
// it is generally best to disable state management as dynamically-generated ids
// can change across page loads, leading to unpredictable results. The developer
// should ensure that stable state ids are set for stateful components in real apps.
Ext.state.Manager.setProvider(new Ext.state.CookieProvider());

Use the GridPanel's columnresize event.

The widthchange event is used internally by the GridPanel to change its View. It then fires its own event which you use.

And I didn't just "know" that. I did your debugging for you:

Thank you very much for your help. When a event is documented in the API I expect that the event is public and working. But as I see I'll have to pay attention. Thx.
