    Is Ext.NET ready for productive real world?

    Hi,

    we're here in discussion to choose between Ext.NET and Telerik RadControls. Currently we are impressed by ExtJS, but a reliable
    solution to work with .NET to aim development for more then 500 concurrent Users or even more in our corporation. For the start we need a least 5x Pro.

    We tried Ext.NET, and we're facing now this problems:

    - Documentation unfinished / Where to find #{GridPanel1}.view.. Methods() when I try to KeyBind PageUp to NextPage Binding?

    - VS2010 (RTM) Ulitmate Javascript Intelisense not working. (Tried the thread wit Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.zip fix)
    /// <reference name="Coolite.Ext.Web.Build.Resources.Coolite.extj s.adapter.ext.ext-base.js" assembly="Coolite.Ext.Web" />
    ... and so on, but still VS says: 'Ext' is undefined.

    - Lots of examples.ext.net are not working (MVC, MulitLevel Gridpanel, ...)

    - No Roadmap or Release Dates for 1.0 (buying now 0.8 means major update)

    - Sencha Touch? Are you planing to support it?

    - Will in 1.0 release complete source be included (build 3.5/4.0)?

    - Is it possible to mix ExtJS / Coolite wit jQuery like having existing Widget withing a Panel (no iFrame)?

    We really like Ext.NET, but there a lots of open question, if it make sense to use it in "real world" productive development.:confused:

    By the way, this is our first support test ;-)

    Hi,

    Documentation unfinished / Where to find #{GridPanel1}.view.. Methods() when I try to KeyBind PageUp to NextPage Binding?
    Yes, we have not finished documentation yet. Client side API you can find at
    http://dev.sencha.com/deploy/dev/docs/

    VS2010 (RTM) Ulitmate Javascript Intelisense not working. (Tried the thread wit Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.zip fix)
    /// <reference name="Coolite.Ext.Web.Build.Resources.Coolite.extj s.adapter.ext.ext-base.js" assembly="Coolite.Ext.Web" />
    ... and so on, but still VS says: 'Ext' is undefined.
    Yes, there is also a JavaScript intellisense issue with VS 2010. We are investigating a fix.

    - Lots of examples.ext.net are not working (MVC, MulitLevel Gridpanel, ...)
    MVC example doesn't work due hosting issue (you can download it and run localy but it requires latest Ext.Net, many premium members uses Ext.Net.MVC successfuly already, http://code.google.com/p/extnet-mvc/)
    MulitLevel Gridpanel is fixed in SVN, just we did not udpdate online Examples Explorer. Do you have another samples are broken?

    No Roadmap or Release Dates for 1.0 (buying now 0.8 means major update)
    Our first goal to release Ext.Net, just we depends from ExtJS also (for example, for Ext.Net release we need stable ExtJS 3.3.0 which is not released yet). But Ext.Net with ExtJS 3.3.0 beta is available in SVN and quite stable

    Sencha Touch? Are you planing to support it?
    Yes, we discussed it but at this moment we have no any assumptions about possibility and dates. Sencha Touch for Android, iPhone & iPad (browsers: Chrome only (and may be Safari)). Are you implementing web application under such devices only (or under Chrome only)?

    Will in 1.0 release complete source be included (build 3.5/4.0)?
    Yes, full source is available. Built against .NET 3.5, 4.0.

    Is it possible to mix ExtJS / Coolite wit jQuery like having existing Widget withing a Panel (no iFrame)?
    You can use jQuery with ExtJS, there are no conflicts.

    Thanks for your feedback and questions!

    The ExtJS 3.3.0 Release Candidate is now available almost a week before.

    http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthre...xtJS-3.3/page2

    When can we expect the RC Release of EXT.NET?

    Thanks for your satifing reply.

    - Client side API - that one we were looking for.

    - JavaScript intellisense, we wait for the fix.

    - We was able to compile an run the MVC from Google SVN, bit buggy and the current RC 1.0 is missing some methods in assembly, but we get the a first picture of Ext.NET usage.

    Do you have another samples are broken?
    - We send you later feedback on all problems we had with the samples.

    Are you implementing web application under such devices only (or under Chrome only)?
    - Not currently IE8 is main platform, but we also make ourselfs ready for IE9 (ExtJS only works in Compa.Mode) and of course all other HTML5 Browsers. We also want be able to extent our application later easily to touch devices. For Management Dashboards, etc.

    Some time ago Sencha Touch has been sort of merged into Ext JS 6 and now it is available as Ext.NET Mobile Beta.
