    [CLOSED] Razor/MVC custom search

    I'm looking to reproduce the example here: http://examples2.ext.net/#/Form/ComboBox/Custom_Search/ in MVC/Razor syntax but I'm having some trouble getting the method to trigger. Can you provide syntax? Is it necessary to use a .ashx file or can you set up a route directly to a controller method?

    thanks

    Well, we have no such example on Razor.

    Could you provide what you are able to achieve at the moment? Where exactly are facing a problem with syntax?

    Sure, you can refererence a controller action setting up a respective Url.

    The issue I'm facing is that I can't get the controller method to trigger when I type in the box. The store and proxy I'm using works in a different example but I'm not sure how t get the combo box to trigger the controller. I can't actually post the code right now as I'm not at work, but I will do ASAP

    Here is the code I've been trying to use:
    cnt.Add(Html.X().FieldContainer()
                                    .Layout(LayoutType.HBox)
                                    .Padding(10)
                                    .Margins("0 0 0 0")
                                    .Items(fields =>
                                    {
                                            fields.Add(Html.X().ComboBox()
                                                .Width(700)
                                                .FieldLabel("Customer/Organisation Name")
                                                .Margins("0 0 4 0")
                                                .LabelWidth(200)
                                                .MinChars(1)
                                                .DisplayField("OrganisationName")
                                                .ValueField("OrganisationName")
                                                .HideBaseTrigger(true)
                                                .TypeAhead(false)
                                                .Cls("form-label")
                                                .ListConfig(Html.X().BoundList()
                                                    .LoadingText("Searching...")
                                                    .Height(200)
                                                    .ItemTpl(Html.X().XTemplate()
                                                        .Html("<div class=\"search-item\"><h3><span>{PartyID}</span>{OrganisationName}</h3>{OrganisationCode}</div>")
                                                    )
                                                )
                                                .Store(store => Html.X().Store()
                                                    .Proxy(proxy => proxy.Add(Html.X().AjaxProxy()
                                                        .Url("/Party/GetOrganisations/")
                                                        .Reader(reader => reader.Add(Html.X().JsonReader()
                                                                .Root("data")
                                                                .TotalProperty("total")
                                                                ))
                                                            ))
                                                    .Model(model => model.Add(Html.X().Model()
                                                        .Fields(modelFields =>
                                                        {
                                                            modelFields.Add(Html.X().ModelField().Name("OrganisationName"));
                                                            modelFields.Add(Html.X().ModelField().Name("OrganisationCode"));
                                                            modelFields.Add(Html.X().ModelField().Name("PartyID"));
                                                        })                                            ))
                                            )
                                        );
                                    })
                                );
    The route to the /
    Party/GetOrganisations method is definitely working as I can bind to other controls and also see the raw JSON if i enter it directly as the URL, but when I try to trigger it using the combobox as a "custom search" box as per the example, the method never gets triggered...

    Please ensure the code is wrapped in [CODE ] tags, see:

    Thanks for the wrapping in [CODE ] tags.

    The problem lays here:
    .Store(store => 
        Html.X().Store()
            ...                                    
    )
    It should be:
    .Store(store =>
        store.Add(Html.X().Store()
            ...
        )
    )

    Thanks it's working now... You can close this topic

    Problem after SVN update

    Hi there,

    I had this functionality working with no problems, but since an SVN update I'm experiencing some strange behaviour. The method in the controller is still firing and obviously returning results as I can see the paging information changing, but the items don't appear in the drop down (the entire drop down is either blank after the initial result displays for a split second initially or the drop down doesnt expand as shown in the screenshot):

    The code I'm using is:
                        containers.Add(Html.X().FieldContainer()
                            .Layout(LayoutType.Anchor)
                            .Margins("0 0 0 0")
                            .Width(900)
                            .Items(cnt =>
                            {
                                cnt.Add(Html.X().FieldContainer()
                                    .Layout(LayoutType.HBox)
                                    .Padding(10)
                                    .Margins("0 0 0 0")
                                    .Items(fields =>
                                    {
                                        fields.Add(Html.X().ComboBox()
                                            .Width(700)
                                            .FieldLabel("Customer/Organisation Name")
                                            .ID("cmbCustomer")
                                            .Margins("0 0 4 0")
                                            .LabelWidth(200)
                                            .PageSize(20)
                                            .Note("Type Organisation Name to search and select an organisation. (*) to show all")
                                            .MinChars(1)
                                            .DisplayField("DisplayName")
                                            .ValueField("PartyID")

    I have done a further test by referencing the previous 2.0 beta dll (as released a couple of weeks ago) and this functionality works again - there is definitely something broken in the latest build...

    What is a response of a controller action?

    Could you also provide the code of a controller action to reproduce the problem?
