    Success! Looks like we've fixed this one. According to our records the fix was applied for EXTJS-3443 in a recent build.

    Default Panels sometimes disappear when their siblings are collapsed

    Using Ext JS 4.0.2, I put two panels inside of a container, making both of them collapsible. When I collapse the first, then the second, the first panel disappears (visually at least). Here's the markup and code to reproduce it.

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
            new Ext.Container({
                collapsible: true,
                items: [{
                    title: 'Collapse me first...',
                    collapsible: true
                }, {
                    title: '...and then me (first panel will disappear)',
                    collapsible: true
                renderTo: Ext.getBody()
    The same problem does not occur on Ext JS 3.3.1.

    Also, this only happens when the panels are in some kind of parent container. If the collapsible panels are appended directly to the document body, the problem does not occur.

    - When a panel disappears, its top-level DOM element (<div id="panel-1015"...) has the style "width: 0;" applied directly to it.
    - The header element (<div id="header-1018"...) has the same "width: 0;" style applied to it.
    - Setting those widths back to the container width makes the panel reappear.

    It looks like when we collapse a panel, it tells its parent container to "do layout", which in turn triggers the setting the width of its child panels. The problem occurs when one of those child panels was already collapsed. The reason is because of the how the child panel decides how wide it should be. It looks at the dimensions of its body. Since the body has the style "display: none;", its width is calculated as zero.

    The bit of code I'm talking about is in the Ext.core.Element class:

    getWidth: function(contentWidth, preciseWidth) {
        var me = this,
            dom = me.dom,
        } else if (Ext.supports.BoundingClientRect) {
            // display is none, so this is a 0 x 0 box!
            rect = dom.getBoundingClientRect();
            width = rect.right - rect.left;
            width = preciseWidth ? width : Math.ceil(width);
    When recalculating the child panel width, should we be basing it off the width of its own body, which in this case is 0 (because of the "display: none;")?

    Here's the stack trace at this point:

    Disclaimer: I may have totally misread it. This is the first time I'm digging into the Ext JS code.
