    Cell Editing startEdit problem

    I have a button to add a new record into the grid. When I click the add button I want to add a record into the store and then start editing the record in the grid...

           function doAdd() {
                var rec = App.Store1.add({company: 'New Company'})[0];
                App.CellEditing1.startEdit(rec, App.GridPanel1.columns[0]);
    This works fine if there is no IDProperty set on the Model....it has the desired effect (record added then first column of newly added row has the editor active).

    However if you add an IDProperty to the model. It sets the editor but quickly goes back to the previously selected item.

    Working Example
    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Ext.Net" Namespace="Ext.Net" TagPrefix="ext" %>
    <script runat="server">
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Store1.DataSource = Data();
        public object[] Data()
                return new object[]
                    new object[] { 1, "3m Co", 71.72, 0.02, 0.03, "9/1 12:00am" },
                    new object[] { 2, "Alcoa Inc", 29.01, 0.42, 1.47, "9/1 12:00am" },
                    new object[] { 3,"Altria Group Inc", 83.81, 0.28, 0.34, "9/1 12:00am" },
                    new object[] { 4,"American Express Company", 52.55, 0.01, 0.02, "9/1 12:00am" },
                    new object[] { 5, "American International Group, Inc.", 64.13, 0.31, 0.49, "9/1 12:00am" }

                        <ext:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Print" Icon="Printer" Handler="this.up('grid').print();" />
    To make it not work change the Model declaration to this

         <ext:Model ID="Model1" runat="server" IDProperty="companyId">

    Ok I can see that the issue is that I need to specify a value for the IDProperty field ie. give it a unique companyId.....I gather the fact that it is assigning 0 to the companyId is causing it an issue?

    Not sure how I get around this? I have a store that is not autoSynced and I submit all by a save button so I dont have an Id field to give it. Server side it is expecting a 0 in there for phantom records so I can't really change it?
