View Full Version : Get attribute of combobox

22 Mar 2010, 12:56 PM
This should be very easy, but I cant seems to figure this out.

I have store which has several parameters defined:

var storeCPU = new Ext.data.ArrayStore({
fields: ['view', 'another'],
data: Ext.configdata.CPU

When there is a value selected in this combobox I can use getValue() to access "view" field form the store. Can someone help me with getting "another" parameter/attribute of the selected item.

I am interested in any information. I need it within couple of hours.

Thank you in advance.

Looks like easiest way for me is to loop through storage data and match “view” field and after that check “another” element data once match is found.

I am not sure how to check elements storage variable. I have array full of elements and each one of them has different storage. For example if I am looking at the array[0] element, how can I look through its storage?

Can someone please point me in the right direction? I assume that it’s very simple to get values from the store, but don’t understand how.

function loadGenderCbx(){

this.gender = new Ext.data.JsonStore({

url : './configcombo/refdata.php' ,


root: 'rows',

fields: ['ATTR_CODE','ATTR_DESC'],

autoLoad: true


return this.gender;

this.genderComboBox = new Ext.form.ComboBox({
fieldLabel : msgs.gender,
hiddenName: 'GENDER_CD',
store: loadGenderCbx(),
mode: 'local',
allowBlank: false,
//required: true,
anchor: '60%'

so if u say:

this.genderComboBox.getValue();-------> returns code value not description.

if this is not ur expecting then send the code and explan the context clearly

I have combo:

var storePOW = new Ext.data.ArrayStore({
fields: ['view', 'value', 'buyid', 'stiimage', 'price', 'cost', 'qtyavailable', 'margin', 'disabled', 'defaultselect'],
data: Ext.configdata.POW

comboPOW = new Ext.form.ComboBox({
tpl: '<tpl for="."><div class="x-combo-list-item"><b>{view}</b><br />Cost: {cost} | Quantity Available: {qtyavailable} | Profit Percent: {margin}</div></tpl>',
store: storePOW,
displayField: 'view',
valueField: 'price',
width: 600,
typeAhead: true,
forceSelection: true,
mode: 'local',
triggerAction: 'all',
editable: editableBox,
emptyText: 'No Power Cords',
selectOnFocus: true,
applyTo: 'confPOW'

Storage is an array:

Ext.configdata.POW = [['Single Power', 'POWER-SERVER', '4831', '94217', '8.00', '1.59', '521', '80.0%', 'false', 'false'],['Y Power Cord', 'POWER-Y-CORD', '4833', '94222', '29.00', '7.07', '48', '76.0%', 'false', 'false']];

Cant get price value:


returns "Single Power" instead of "1.59". Why? How can this be fixed?

Also how can I access all other fields?
