I was looking at using the Ext JS 4.1 ( , it promisses to enable developers to use the model-view-controller (MVC) architecture when building their app.

can someone give me an example of how I can use the Ext JS 4 with MVC?
if I wanted to create a form using their code, it looks like I need to write a specific form code in JS for each form (with every element I want the form to have) I need, how is that MVC? I'd like an option to build a form using PHP (to retreive data like- name fields and field type, etc..) to make my JS create that form on it's own, by getting data from php..
I expected to see some sort of generic functions with params..

what am I missing?

no answers...ok,
how about this question:
I'm looking at an example of a table (grid) with many rows, now all the data in the table is written inside the js code..
how can I use this table if I want to get the data of each row from my DB?
here's part of the js code

Ext.onReady(function() {

    // setup the state provider, all state information will be saved to a cookie

    // sample static data for the store
    var myData = [
        ['3m Co',                               71.72, 0.02,  0.03,  '9/1 12:00am'],

Are you looking for something like this?

sort of...
depanding on where the table gets the data from..
I don't understand somethings in that code, it looks like it's calling a php file here

url: 'app.php/users'

but I expected to see with sql query or some var/obj that holds the rows that are displayed in the table and I don't see it in the app.php, I actually don't understand what that code does nor where the data comes from..

Member Avatar

ok I found it lol might work..

thank you!

Member Avatar

when I open your link I see rows in the table, but when I open the same html file that I have in the folder that I got when I downloaded the framework (Desktop\extjs-4.1.1\examples\restful\restful.html) the table is empty.. ?

Member Avatar

looks like the restful.js calls app.php but it's not isn't running
any ideas why?

app.php isn't running

What do you mean by this? app.php is a PHP script that gets the values from a database and returns them in JSON format.
