    Default Sencha Touch DataItem and DataView.useComponents incompatible with Architect 2.1

    I created a trivial ST2 app in Architect 2.1 using one DataView with useComponents : true

    Code:
    Ext.define('MyApp.view.MyDataView', {
        extend: 'Ext.dataview.DataView',
    
    
        config: {
            defaultType: 'mydataitem',
            store: 'MyDirectStore',
            useComponents: true,
            itemConfig: {
                xtype: 'mydataitem'
            }
        }
    
    
    });
    and linked it to a trivial DataItem

    Code:
    Ext.define('MyApp.view.MyDataItem', {
        extend: 'Ext.dataview.component.DataItem'
    
    
        config: {
            padding: 10,
            layout: {
                type: 'hbox'
            },
            items: [
                {
                    xtype: 'component',
                    flex: 1,
                    html: 'here'
                }
            ]
        },
    
    
        updateRecord: function(record) {
            // Provide an implementation to update this container's child items
        }
    
    
    });
    But I can only get this to work if I hand edit MyDataItem and put this line

    Code:
        xtype: 'mydataitem',
    in front of the config. Otherwise when I run it I get the error

    Uncaught Error: [ERROR][Ext.Container#setDefaultType] Invalid defaultType of: 'mydataitem', must be a valid component xtype

    Sencha Architect 2.1 won't let me put the xtype in. If I try it says

    A custom config cannot override a reserved config...

    However, if I hand edit the xtype property into MyDataItem, Sencha Architect removes whenever I save the project.

    What should I do ?

    Change it via an override.

    Btw, we have a tutorial/guide coming on how to use the useComponents flag with Architect as many people have been asking.

    After reading tcsete's reply to this post http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthre...taitem+datamap , I spent some time trying to use overrides but with no success. Eventually I hit on using
    Code:
    alias: 'widget.mydataitem',
    instead of xtype even though xtype is what is used in the non-Architect DataItem examples e.g. http://www.sencha.com/blog/dive-into...touch-2-beta-2.

    The DataView now connects to mydataitem.

    I couldn't get the dataMap to work via the override either, so instead I do everything through the

    Code:
    updateRecord: function(record)
    i.e. get values from record.data and use them to update the html in mydataitem's components.

    (Maybe I'm missing something but the dataMap feature seems over-engineered ?)

    It works now, but some up to date documentation and examples would be very welcome.

    In short, yes. In 2.2 the dataMap configuration is being deprecated in favor of people writing the code to do what they want in the updateRecord method.

    Can we have an updateRecord function example?
    Thanks

    We'll put a new example into the Sencha Architect github repo soon.
    https://github.com/SenchaArchitect

    For now I'd suggest you look at the navigationview example included with the touch SDK.

    How soon the example could be? I'm stucked here

    I meant how to use DataView.useComponent = true

    I am loosing patience for not making it working and thinking if I should quit from the Architect I paid for to a standard code editor

    This works today.

    We have it in the pipeline to create an example with an associated tutorial.
