Hi all,
I'm part way through an ExtJS-based project management application. One panel contains a series of status reports. Pure ExtJS-fashion would seem to be to place these reports in a grid or ListView.

I'm quite interested, however, in displaying these progress reports as a last-first sequence of comments, possibly even including the statements in speech bubbles, like in many blog templates. This is certainly possible in ExtJS - I'm just keen to decide if it's the right thing - or whether the UI will be more consistent if I stick to the ExtJS desktop application metaphor vs Web UI model.

1. Has anybody seen this done before in ExtJS?
2. How did it look?

cheers
Ian
