    Default outdated tutorial

    the tutorial here:
    http://www.sencha.com/learn/Tutorial:Ext_Menu_Widget
    is so woefully out of date that it will confuse and frustrate more than help anyone trying to learn about toolbars and menus.
    maybe it should be either updated or removed as it defeats the purpose?

    Yeah, noticed a ton of stuff is out of date, and there are even problems with the API Docs not working correctly in Chrome.

    Kind of disappointing to find such a lack of resources after joining a new dev team and finding out I'd be using Ext.

    Not to mention sencha.com having so many problems--timing out, bad gateway responses, DB error messages when trying to view the site.

    My excitement for learning a/this new JS framework is quickly fading.

    Thanks, eljko. I didn't mean to sound disparaging; I'm just concerned about my own ramp-up time here and sweating a little.

    Ext definitely appears to be the right framework for the project. I don't know of any other that creates such a rich UI that will gives us that Web 3.0 site-as-an-application feel we're looking for.

    Glad to be learning it!

    We all did our sweating while learning ExtJs
    Whenever you encounter some problem try to search it on help forum. When I was starting, I found out that majority problems I had were already solved by someone. And if you can't find the solution don't hesitate to ask. Someone will surely answer it. I don't remember waiting for help more then a day.
