    Default 6.5 issues after quick scan!

    1) How is Dynamic Package Loader not the single most promoted feature of this release! Great work guys, long coming, and gives Sencha a huge edge over all others!

    2) My biggest issue with this release is that modern toolkit still doesn't have good support for drag-and-drop, which is very common nowadays; e.g. there isn't a single example of using drag-and-drop to re-arrange items within a list (most common scenario), and examples that are shown are buggy (i.e. you start dragging something and it jumps off way far from the cursor: http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...rn#drag-handle

    3) Some Ext.Direct examples don't show anything:
    - http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...rn#direct-tree
    - http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...rn#direct-grid

    4) After showing "Basic Dialog", then expanding it full-screen, then closing it, the dark background mask remains: http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...n#basic-dialog

    5) "Long Text" toasts, when viewing on a phone, overflow outside of the screen:
    http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...ern#toast-view

    6) Grids on phone - I think it's headed in the right direction, and the grouped one is a masterpiece! What about locked columns though?

    7) A bit confused about the "group by this column" feature of the grid, as it seems to work in the "grouped grid", but does nothing in others

    8) After using the "row expander" feature on my phone (note 5), I'm unable to navigate away and have to reload the app: http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...-expander-grid

    9) Same issue with "stock ticker" grid on the phone: http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...rn#ticker-grid
    ...this is actually a huge problem with classic toolkit that I didn't think would translate into modern - a single error somewhere in the app can hose the entire app; this was a product of the layout engine getting broken. Scary to see same in modern.

    10) Flexible selections grid - can't perform selections on phone (only single cell) (note 5): http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...selection-grid

    11) Clicking on event in calendar in phone (note 5) (i.e. "Weekly pickup game") causes a flash of the edit form and then it disappears: http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...ndar-days-view

    12) Calendar week view in Desktop (surface win 10 chrome) has header columns misaligned with the main data (looks good in mobile tho!): http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.5...ndar-week-view

    13) Any plans of bringing back Doc Comments? Was one of the best features that Sencha killed imho

    Going to move this to the QA forum since it's not really just a bug report, will look into what you've posted.

    Yep, it's a shame the 6.5 GA version did not came with the package load feature, I've downloaded the 6.5 just to see this functionality, we really can not trust the first releases of the sencha, always many and many bugs, just advertising.

    There's so many bugs without solutions and launches new versions with new features full of new problems.

    Having just gone live with a 6.2.1 classic (desktop-cloud) & modern (mobile) app pair I found the toolkit differences quite significant & much UI code had to be written twice.
    so .. I looked over the What's New in 6.5 with great interest.
    I thought the new 6.5 modern features looked great & we're heading in the right direction. i.e. one toolkit for desktop & mobile. But the lack of the filter plugin on the grid would be a showstopper for me.
    Also .. to create anything slightly complex in the gridetitable form was/is (IMO) a challenge. Doable but not simple and doesn't seem to comply nicely with view model & view controller concepts.

    Default Package Loader

    Hi evandropoa,

    The package loader is part of Sencha Cmd 6.5 and is implemented in the package-loader package.

    A demo can be found here and the package loader is a separate GitHub repo.

    This allows us to revise it outside the normal Ext JS release timeline. Fwiw, we have customers using this feature with Ext JS 6.2 applications... with Sencha Cmd 6.5 of course.

    If you have other specific issues please start a new thread and describe the steps you have taken and the problem you are seeing so we can assist you.

    Thanks!

    Hi fairport,

    The grid filters are definitely high on the list of pieces provide... just couldn't fit them in 6.5 for time reasons.

    Also thanks for the feedback on the grideditable plugin. It dates back quite a bit and could use some... refreshing... as you suggest to bring it in line with view controllers and such.
