Ext  technology + Grid + HyperLink column...

Posted on 2009-07-10
Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I built an ascx that contains a grid.
I need to add a column that the values inside will be links.
The column is :
 {name: 'Title', type: 'string'}  -----> instead of string, somthing like "URL", or "HyperLink"
This doesn't work, so how can it be done?
(the code is below...)
<script language="javascript">



    var record =[

        {name: 'RequestId', type: 'float'},

        {name: 'Id', type: 'string'},

        {name: 'Title', type: 'string'}  ***********HERE I NEED TO CHANGE TO HYPERLINK-TEXT/URL



    var xmlStore = new{            

        url     : "Services/ExtService.aspx?serviceMethod=GetData",

        reader  : new{

            record      : Suppliers, 

            totalRecords: "results"}, record



    var pagingBar = new Ext.PagingToolbar({

        pageSize    : 10,

        displayInfo : true,

        displayMsg  : '',

        store       : xmlStore





    var sm = new Ext.grid.RowSelectionModel({

        singleSelect: true,

        listeners: {

            rowselect: function(sm, row, rec) {





    var reportsGrid = new Ext.grid.GridPanel({

        cm : new Ext.grid.ColumnModel([


            {RequestID: 'RequestId', dataIndex: 'RequestorId', hidden: true},

            {header: 'a',sortable: true, dataIndex: 'Id'},

            {header: 'b',sortable: true, dataIndex: 'Title'}                


        plugins             : expander,

        collapsible         : false,

        animCollapse        : false,

        sm                  : sm,

        enableHdMenu        : false,

        enableColumnResize  : false,

        store               : xmlStore,

        height              : 400,

        width               : 850,

        viewConfig          : {forceFit : true, scrollOffset:2},

        autoExpandColumn    : 'SecondarySubject',

        frame               : true,

        title               :'results',

        bbar                : pagingBar,


        {text:,'show', tooltip:'show', tooltipType: 'title'}, 

        {text:'back', handler: back, tooltip:'new search', tooltipType: 'title'}

What is the actual content of the Title field in the Ext record?

I use links in Ext grids but usually use a renderer on the fly. Can you try this method?

			var listColumnModel = new Ext.grid.ColumnModel



					{header: "Full Name", width: 90, sortable: true, dataIndex: 'fullName'},

					{header: "Date of Birth", width: 80, sortable: true, dataIndex: 'birthDateString'},

					{header: "Actions", width: 60, sortable: false, fixed: true, dataIndex: '', renderer: renderActions}



			function renderActions(value, meta, record)


				var editUrl = baseUri + 'detail/edit.action?id=' +;


				var html = '<a href="' + editUrl + '"><img src="' + baseUri + '/images/icon/edit.png" width="18" height="18" ext:qtip="Edit"/></a>';


				return html;

I define it to a struts tag (which is in a sitemesh master page):

       var baseUri = '<s:url value="/"/>';

But that maps to the context root of the application

       var baseUri = '/myapp/';
