Unanswered: Ext.field.Select - force a selection
I was wondering if there was a way to force a user to select an item in the list, rather than it defaulting to the first record after the associated store has loaded.
So when the store loads, the select field would just become enabled, but the placeholder text would remain the same, and the value would be null in order to enforce the 'required' validation rule.
I suppose one option would be to insert an empty record into the first position of the store after it finishes loading, but I don't like the idea of polluting my store with hackery like this.

No. I'm talking about the options.
I just dont want the select field to auto-select the first record in the store once it loads. I want the value to remain null and the placeholder text to stay put.
Example: "Select a State" instead of it auto-selecting "Alaska" after the store is loaded.

That list wont pop up as I'm using the option: usePicker: 'true'
