ExtJs 3.x

ExtJs 3 - Normal looking buttons in toolbars

Seems like ages since I last did any serious blogging, feels good to be back. That too with an interesting solution to a common problem with ExtJs.

I have often seen end-users complain about non-intuitiveness of buttons in ExtJs toolbars. They simply look like static labels, not clickable buttons until you hover over them.

ExtJs - Slider component with ability to add items dynamically

Sometime earlier, I wrote a blog post demonstrating a Ticker component for ExtJs to which items can be added dynamically (here). The client for whom I originally wrote that Ticker component changed the specification recently, now requesting the ability for the ticker items to stay on screen for a configurable duration of time.

ExtJs 3 - Enabling multiple file uploads using TextField

Well I just committed code on one of my projects enabling multiple file uploads using an ExtJs 3 TextField. And it appeared to me I can write a quick blog post about it.

So without wasting too much time, I will allow you to straightaway get your hands dirty with the code to produce multiple-file upload textfield:


ExtJs and iScroll - Scrolling Ext containers on Touch devices (iPad, iPhone etc.) using iScroll 4

I yesterday did a very interesting thing, integrating ExtJs with the excellent iScroll 4 script from Matteo Spinelli that would make my ExtJs containers intuitively scrollable on Touch devices (especially iPad) giving them a more native scrolling feel.

CKEditor - [CKEDITOR.dialog.openDialog] Dialog "link" failed when loading definition

I think this happened to me some weeks ago but I am blogging about it only now (the last month or so has been overly hectic, so no time for "exotic" activities like blogging).

In an ASP.NET website installation that has been running perfectly for months and using CKEditor for wysiwyg content entry, suddenly the users started reporting they can no longer click the "Link" button in the editor toolbar to bring up the Link dialog for turning the selected text to a hyperlink.

ExtJs and Ext.Net - Creating Ext.Net server components for custom ExtJs javascript components

I think all of us would agree that Ext.Net provides too good (and a bit complex) ExtJs and ASP.NET integration. It exposes almost all ExtJs toolkit classes server-side in ASP.NET and many of the popular extensions too. In addition, it provides own custom components that are useful (e.g. MultiCombo, Linkbutton etc).

ExtJs - An ExtJs Ticker Component supporting adding items dynamically

Tickers used to be an essential part of any website during the earlier days of web, but are no longer considered that much useful today, right? Well I atleast thought so until a few days back, when I received a feature request for a scrolling ticker in a corporate intranet app (which uses ExtJs heavily, in fact with a completely ExtJs based UI). And on some inspection, the request seemed to be reasonable.

ASP.NET - A complete translation framework through Powershell and Google Translate

In this blog post, I present a complete framework for automatic localization in ASP.NET, ability to customize what is produced by this framework and a completely functional ASP.NET app demonstrating the features and process.

ExtJs 4 -Vertically stacked side-by-side multiple charts

Web 2.0: 

ExtJs 4 was released yesterday and the reason I am pretty excited about this new ExtJs version is Charting. I have been using HighCharts with ExtJs till now. Although HighCharts work and look great, there isn't a standard adapter/bridge provided by either ExtJs or HighCharts team to make them work together seamlessly.
