    editorDataField question

    Zolotoj Level 3

      If I have a combobox as a custom itemrenderer in a DataGrid and I set editorDataField to "id" should datagrid's selectedItem.id get a new value from combo's id field when I select something in the combobox?

       

      Thanks

          Do you really want to use id as the editor data field?  The id refers to the component's programatic variable name, right?

           

          Even so, that said; the editorDataFiel property refers to a property on the editor, not on properties within the editor.  I did not think it would drill down to use 'selectedItem.id' ; but you can use 'selectedItem. 

           

          You could also extend the ComboBox to have a 'value' type of property that holds 'selectedItem.id" from your ComboBox's dataProvider.  Except rename the 'id' property.
