I'm an ext developer, who heard your product mentioned at extjs conf09. I installed it, and am amazed at how fast I can put an ext app together. I was wondering how much customization can be done, along the lines of using user extensions, and extending classes. I'd like to start using this to develop with, but I can't lose the customization I'm used to with native javascript/extjs.

The first thing I notice I'm using, that I can't duplicate is a treegrid. I have used the extjs example for columntree in several places in an internal application. There is also a user extension called ext.ux.treegrid by maximgb I have used a couple of places.


just wondering.

Hi bsmokeman,

Thanks for the feedback!


There's several ux widgets (Desktop, FileUploadField, Portal) in the main Coolite.Ext.Web project that have been converted into asp.net controls that could be used a starting basis to develop your own controls. 


The TreeGrid has been on our list for a while, but as of today we've not been able to implement it as a control. I think the TreeGrid might be a tricky widget to implement because of it's complexity and databinding... although that's just a guess. 


There's also the coolite-ux-toolkit project on GoogleCode (http://code.google.com/p/coolite-ux-toolkit/) which contains the GMapPanel and few other goodies.

great!so if we were determined enough to, we could use the examples to develop our own(and contribute them back to the community?)


how would we get started?
