View Full Version : Auto refresh of a Grid Data

26 Jan 2010, 1:55 AM
Hello everyone, i'm quite new to Ext GWT, and i'm trying to figure something out.

In my app, I use a Grid to display some data which is loaded with a RpcProxy.
The data of the grid may be changing on the Server side, and i need to refresh this list everytime it does.

How can this be done in a clean way ? I couldn't find a way to refresh the list every X seconds, and I couldn't find a way to trigger the reload via a listener either.

Thanks in advance for your help, and sorry for my English, I'm french :)
Let me know if you need any more information.


Edit : Using 2.1.0, by the way

You could use the timer to schedule a load. This should reload your store every 60 seconds.
(It's not tested, so I guess there are bugs in my small example)

Timer timer = new Timer() {
public void run() {
timer.schedule(1000 * 60);

Thanks a lot, that is exactly what i was looking for.

Seems like if you want the timer to refresh itself like this :

final Timer timer = new Timer() {
public void run() {

The loader needs to be final. No idea why though.

final, because the call of the loader in run is then later and thats why the loader object should not change any more.

final Timer timer = new Timer()
public void run()
timer.scheduleRepeating(1000 * 60);

Hi, I have pretty much the same setup as the OP and have the timer working. However, is there a way to not use the timer and only refresh the Grid when there's an update on the server side? (i.e., push notification)

Sure you can, but you need a comet implementation. Take a look at: http://code.google.com/p/gwt-comet/
