    Default [2.2.0-alpha] fireEvent returns 'undefined' if no handler.

    Versions: 2.2.0-alpha (and 2.1.1)
    Browser: Chrome 24 (Win8 / Desktop)
    Severity: normal (workaround: explicitly test fireEvent(...) !== false)
    Attachement: Full test case

    Sencha Touch 2.1 doc says that fireEvent "returns false if any of the handlers return false, otherwise it returns true". If there is no handler attached to the fired event, fireEvent returns 'undefined'. In this case, code checking 'if (fireEvent() == true)', 'if (fireEvent())' or 'if (!fireEvent())' will failed.

    Test case (code extracted from the full test case in attachment)

    PHP Code:
    _fireEvent: function() {
    res this.fireEvent('click'this);
    console.log('fireEvent return:'res);
    PHP Code:
    config: {
    control: {

    // [OK] method returns false, fireEvent returns 'false'
                //'main': { click: function() { return false; } },

                // [OK] method returns nothing, fireEvent returns 'true'
                //'main': { click: function() { } }

                // [FAILED] no bound listeners, fireEvent returns 'undefined'.
