View Full Version : FormPanel within Ext.Window how to access the Form before Dialog is first shown?

i've defined some form fields put them into a FormPanel and that is an item of an Ext.Window.

i thought i could do




but both things i do on the form just fail until the dialog was at least shown once.

is there a way to render the whole dialog with the form hidden?
the "hiden:true" option on the dialog didn't seem to change a thing.

Perhaps put this code in the 'render' event of the formpanel?

why are you worrying about setting the value before show? Why not do it after its rendered?

well the code to set the value and then show the field is placed on the dblclick event of a DataView.

i want to set the id from the record i clicked to edit it.

atm i can't figure out how i could entangle that with the render event :S

in fact: the setValue is pretty unneccessary. setting that value wouldn't be necessary if the form.load(...) would be executed.

atm it goes more like this:
the form sis supposed to show() itself on a successful load action and close on a successful save.
