click in the button "get combo value" you can see one alert showing that the value is null, but the value was set before the combo render..

public Data() {


public Data(String name) {

public String getName() {
return get("name");

set("name", name);

This is not really an issue in the combobox. The item is not in the store, so you cant get it. You can use getRawValue which gets you the rawvalue. I am closing this isuse.

ok.. I agree if you,

but its really necessary access all data in store to get the combobox value? I think that ISNT a good ideia.. for performace..

If I have one form.. that I need edit the data.. I set all values for my inputs (incluind textfields and combobox).. and if the user will realy need change the combobox value.. he will click in trigger and choose other item.. :)

you told that The item is not in the store but if I change my code for this..

combo.setValue(new Data("name 1"));

now the item is in the store.. but continue return null..

other way.. raw value its one String and not the really value of my combo that its one ModelData

No it is not in the store as your load your data later. Use a memoryproxy for example.

ok.. I can use other ways to do this... overwrite the method.. or create my combo box but the problem is that the concept its wrong.. in all frameworks.. if you have one method get and set.. what you set should be what you get.. :)

why need iterate in store to get the value if you have one get and set? when the user choose the item in list.. call method set.. I dont see none problem..
