View Full Version : [CLOSED] ownerCt issue in Ext.Button within menu

20 May 2010, 4:55 AM
the ownerCt in Ext.Button within menu in not setted, and so is not possibile to recurse the owner's chain from bottom to top.

In this simple example you will see in firebug's console the print out : undefined

I except that the vMainButton's menu ownerCt is the vMainButton itself (but it is undefined)

What I'm doing wrong?

Ext.onReady(function () {
var vButton1 = new Ext.menu.Item({
text: 'Inner button'
var vMainButton = new Ext.Button({
text: 'Main button',
menu: [vButton1]
var vView = new Ext.Viewport({
renderTo: 'test-body',
items: [vMainButton]

Try parentMenu instead of ownerCt.

It looks like a bug. Menu extends container and ownerCt property is documented, however, it is undefined in your example. Note: Menu is a bit different from other containers. Its el is not rendered within the container but in body and laying out its parent doesn't affect the menu itself. Anyway, moving this thread to bugs for explanation/fixing the issue.

Looks like the reference isn't set until the menu is shown. This looks to be a design decision which allows a single menu to be "bound" to several buttons.

Thank you for the explanation Jamie.
