ExtJS and Adobe Air

I am currently experimenting with ExtJS and its Adobe Air support and just stumbled over an odd bug, while working on a grid mockup.

If the first column in the grid doesn’t have an ID assigned, then the sorting feature will be unavailable on that first column. Additionally ADL will crash, if you mouseover the first column.

So, note to self: always assign an ID to the first grid column!

Beside that, the ExtJS integration and available features make ExtJS and Adobe Air a powerful combination and I am currently working on porting nExtPanel over to Adobe Air in my spare time.

The latest Ext.air release is currently not included in ExtJS, but it is available on the ExtJS blog and it comes with some impressive example applications, e.g.: MP3 player.
