    Default Unanswered: How to access the data through REST APi

    Hi guys,

    I got really confused on how to use the Ext.data.proxy.
    This is the info of the server:

    Code:
    HTTP Method: POST
    REST resource: /search
    Request Sample: type=new&city=ABC&date=01-01-2012
    Response: 
    {
    "firstShow":{
    "01-01-2012":{
    "currency":"USD",
    "price":50,
    "note":"some note"
    }
    },
    "secondShow":{
    "03-01-2012":{
    "currency":"USD",
    "price":20,
    "note":"some note again"
    }
    }
    }
    I created a function inside a controller class: (not sure if it's right )
    I tried with hard-coded params for this one.

    Code:
    searchShows: function(button, event, object){
            
            Ext.Ajax.request({
                url: 'https://www.somesites.com/api/search',
                method: 'POST',
                withCredentials: true,
                useDefaultXhrHeader: false,
                params:{
                    type: 'new',
                    city: 'ABC',
                    date: '31-03-2012',
                },
                
                callback: function(response, successful) {
                    if (successful) {
                        Ext.Msg.alert('Success', 'We got yours');
                    } else {
                        Ext.Msg.alert('Fail', 'It didn't work!');
                    }
                }
            });
            
        },
    Questions:
    1. How to actually implement this using Sencha's MVC system ?
    2. How to pass the request, get the response, and show it into the view?

    The Ajax call should technically be in a controller but that all depends on your app.

    To show the data in a component, I would use a tpl on a component and execute setData with the decoded JSON.
