Is there a way to independently render the items of an Ext.form.ComboBox?


I have a web application that uses an ExtJS 4 Ext.form.ComboBox.

I need for it to be able to render its items separately depending on their value.  Specifically, I need for the tooltip to be different for each item depending on its value, and - if possible - for some of the items to actually be non-selectable depending on their value.

This seems like it should be pretty simple, but I've spent hours on it and haven't gotten anywhere.  I think I might make be able some headway if I could just get the items within the combobox.  I can do this to its store by using getAt(index) - but this only gives me access to the data, not to the appearance or behavior of the items themselves.

Thanks in Advance

For the rendering, can't you just add an extra field eg. 'displayName' to your model?

Then in your view, your combo is defined like this:
     xtype: 'combobox',
     store: ...,
     displayField: 'displayName',   // <<<<<< This will be displayed
     valueField: 'value'                    // <<<< while this is the 'real' value

Open in new window

Yes - in fact I already have separate a valueField and a displayField that have different values.

Is there any way I can use this to actually disable some of the items?
