This example shows how to use MVVM architecture, new in ExtJS 5, to bind a record selected in the grid or data view to form and template panel. It also shows how to synchronize selection in grid and data view.

I have designed this example for same look and functionality as its Ext 4 counterpart. Although they look very similar and do virtually the same thing, the approach is entirely different. It is so different that I will dedicate a post to explaining the differences. Stay tuned.

Main Features

  • store with inline data defined in view model
  • one view model and one view controller used at the container level
  • making selection in the grid or data view publishes the selected record to the view model
  • the selected record bound to form and template panel
  • the record is editable both in the grid and form, changes updated immediately in bound components
  • buttons’ disabled state bound to the record (form) or store (grid) dirty condition
  • shows two-way binding and deep binding
  • no MVC controller
  • no data binding related listeners
