    [OPEN] [#756] Grid - Locked Columns not locked when configured after load


    I have a dynamic gird that I am loading after selecting a CSV file. i.e. There are no modelfields in the store and there are no columns in the grid when the form is first loaded. Once the user has selected a CSV file. I dynamically set ModelFields and Grid columns in code behind based on the imported data.

    I can get this to work but I want to lock some columns and I find that it's not working when setting the locked column dynamically.

    I have added some code that shows this issue:

    <ext:ResourceManager ID="ResourceManager1" runat="server" Theme="Neptune" ScriptMode="Debug"></ext:ResourceManager>
            <ext:GridPanel ID="grid" runat="server" Height="300" Width="300">
                    <ext:Store runat="server" ID="store" AutoLoad="False">
                            <ext:Model ID="Model1" runat="server">
                            <ext:ArrayReader />
                        <ext:Column ID="Column1" runat="server" Locked="true" Hidden="true"></ext:Column>
            <ext:Button runat="server" Text="Load">
                    <Click OnEvent="DoLoad"></Click>
    protected void DoLoad(object sender, DirectEventArgs e)
                Store store = this.store;
                var modelField1 = new ModelField("Col1", ModelFieldType.Auto);
                var modelField2 = new ModelField("Col2", ModelFieldType.Auto);
                // this column is locked
                Column column1 = new Column();
                column1.DataIndex = modelField1.Name;
                column1.Text = modelField1.Name;
                column1.Locked = true;
                // this column is not locked
                Column column2 = new Column();
                column2.DataIndex = modelField2.Name;
                column2.Text = modelField2.Name;
    After running this there are two columns in the grid but the first column is not locked.

    I have overcome this with a workaround but I don't really want the extra column in the grid....the workaround is by adding a hidden column set to locked in the markup

                        <ext:Column runat="server" Locked="true" Hidden="true"></ext:Column>
    It would be good if you could let me know what I should do to make this work?

    Hi @glenh,

    Please try to set EnableLocking="true" for the GridPanel.

    Locking should be enabled initially. Just if there is a locked column in an initial config, locking is enabled automatically.

    Hi Danil

    Unfortunately setting EnableLocking on the Grid throws an error if there are no defined Columns (on load).

    No mind, I can live with the work around but thought it would be best to report it anyway.

    Thank you for reporting that!

    Created an Issue to track the defect.
