Valid xtypes in GWT-Ext

30 Jun 2009

Say you have a panel, that contains a form and you want to get the values for the fields of that form, one way to go on about it is to use findByType():

Find a component under this container at any level by xtype.

Parameters: xtype - the components xtype Returns: an array of components this is all well and good, however the available xtypes, what are those?

A bit of magic string here?,  what are the available xtypes?

You can find a list below: `

`* Toolbar components

This list is available from the** Component** class in the package com.gwtext.client.widgets;

As a cleaner way to deal with this I created an Enum to work with this information.

Hope it saves you 10min.
