    [CLOSED] GetStore() on ComboBox with static ListItems wipes out the ListItem collection

    GetStore() on ComboBox with static ListItems wipes out the ListItem collection. Try to remove this line:

    Ext.Net.Store myStore = MyCombo.GetStore();
    ... and the sample will work with no exception.

    What's happening here?

    Thank you!


    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
    <script runat="server">
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // this line will wipe out the ListItem collection
            Ext.Net.Store myStore = MyCombo.GetStore();
            string value = MyCombo.SelectedItem.Value;
            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(value))
                Store store = MyCombo.GetStore();
                if (store != null)
                    DataTable dt = null;
                    if (store.DataSource is DataTable)
                        dt = store.DataSource as DataTable;
                    if (store.DataSource is DataSet)
                        DataSet ds = store.DataSource as DataSet;
                        if (ds.Tables.Count > 0)
                            dt = ds.Tables[0];
                    if (dt != null && dt.Rows.Count > 0)
                        value = Convert.ToString(dt.Rows[0][MyCombo.ValueField]);
                        value = MyCombo.Items[0].Value;
            // do something with value

    Hi @exe,

    A ComboBox's GetStore() generates a SimpleStore (not a public class) and it moves ComboBox's Items to that SimpleStore. I would say it should happen at the first .GetStore() call. I mean I would personally expect it throws an exception with only
    Store store = MyCombo.GetStore();
    Well, this exception unveils the fact that a ComboBox is not quite designed to use both - Store and Items. It supposes binding data through Store or Items, but not together.

    Though, if you need it for some reason, please use this to access a ComboBox's Store.
    Store store = MyCombo.Store.Primary;

    Hi Daniil,
    I just need to know, if there is a Store bound to the Combo or it uses static ListItems. I am not using them both at a time.

    I'm doing something like this:
    if (MyCombo.GetStore().StoreID != null) {
      // we have a Store
    } else {
      // we have ListItems
    Or is there any other way to determine this?

    Thank you!

    Yes, please use if (MyCombo.Store.Primary != null) { ....
