I've been following this for sometime - if it's as good as it looks I would gladly switch from Dojo/jQuery to EXT. IIRC the licence isn't quite as good though Sad

That does look pretty fine ... I think I'll DL it just for the knowledge. Concerned about interfacing with other systems ... when they say "link to datastore" does that mean THEIR datastore or something I've defined or ...?

Great find though, certainly worth a look. @DM - that's a very different tool than jQuery, but if you're into DoJo this might be a valid replacement.

The components are more the equivilant of jQuery UI I believe. I'm not sure how good the core is but the EXTjs UI elements are some of the best out there - and with a visual designer I think it's quite compelling.

In terms of hooking in to a datastore, if its anything like Dojo there will be set objects for setting up and working with REST / RPC etc. data stores, either with JSON or otherwise. This way your tree and grid share a unified API for grabbing and updating data. I really like the Dojo version, but I've always liked visual building when it comes to UI design (in the same way MS popularised VB) so will be giving this a whirl.

Even I don't personally like ExtJS that much, I think it's great sign that industry is starting to create more easy-to-use JS UI tools.
