initialize function in the class system
the sencha docs http://docs.sencha.com/touch/2-1/#!/guide/class_system doc does not talk about the initialize function at all yet most custom components use it.
why is it not in the docs? should I use it when I build a custom component? also whats the difference between constructor and initialize function?
