Ext JS 7.5 Has Arrived!

The Sencha team is excited to announce the latest release of Ext JS version 7.5. On the heels of the 7.4 release which introduced highly requested features and upgrades including 4 new rich Grid features and quality improvements in both the toolkits, 7.5 includes many quality enhancements, usability improvements and fixes for customers reported issues. This article summarizes improvements and quality fixes in the 7.5 version of Ext JS.


Usability Improvements and Enhancements

As part of the 7.5 release, we upgraded the Froala Editor and Font Awesome packages to the latest 5.14.4 version and provided out-of-the-box localization support for new grid features introduced for both the toolkits in 7.4 version, such as Multi-level Grouping, Summaries for groups and total, and Filterbar. 

Froala Editor now includes track changes and markdown support.

Quality Improvements

The 7.5 release includes more than 40 quality improvements for customer reported tickets. Some of the most notable improvements are for the following customer reported issues:

  • The number column in the modern grid doesn’t have a renderer function/method
  • Chart tooltips are triggered from the wrong location when innerPadding is used.
  • pullrefresh plugin doesn’t fire load event on the bound store.
  • Remote filters with gridfilter plugin ignores autoLoad: false. So, from 7.5 onwards, autoLoad config for store should be considered when remoteFilter/remoteSort is/are configured. If autoload:false/autoLoad is not configured and filters/sorters are set then the store won’t load until .load() is called initially. If the user wants the store to load automatically, the user has to set autoload:true config.
  • Modern date picker not selecting the correct date.
  • Modern combobox has multiple query issue when forceSelection:false, multiSelect: true and queryMode: ‘remote’.


Please refer to the Ext JS 7.5 release notes, for further details.
