Sencha Ext JS includes rich grids that allow you to render virtually any size of dataset quickly in many browsers. In this demo, over 7000 records are loaded and displayed both with and without the new Buffered Renderer plugin to highlight the significant performance increase.
Sencha Sales Engineer, Daniel Gallo demonstrates how easy it is to build mobile applications for any device with HTML5 and Sencha Touch Bundle. In this one-hour video, he will show you the power of using Sencha Architect, Sencha Touch 2.2, and Sencha Touch Charts to build a cross-platform app, that works on Windows Phone 8, Blackberry 10, iOS and Android phones.
Sencha Touch 2.2 provides custom theming capabilities for different platforms. In this video, we have put together a demonstration of how easy it is to add theme-switching capability for different platforms, as well as customizing each theme for your application to appear the way you would like for each platform.
For providing a theme-switching capability, the first step is to create a theme in the application code base, which has a base theme to start with. As demonstrated in the video, by replicating the base theme, you can create additional resources (customizable) and configure the app to load different themes based on platform specific paths defined on your app configuration file. With Sencha Touch, your app automatically detects the platform, and the theme specific to the platform defined in the configuration file gets loaded for styling and appearance. Once you have configured the app to switch themes, you can always edit each platform-specific theme to customize the appearance.
Unlike previous versions of Sencha Touch, version 2.2 has started using the pictos icon-fonts to replace the need to render icons using images. Since icons-fonts are vector in nature, they can be scaled infinitely and styled dynamically using CSS. This video demonstrates a set of icon fonts included in the default Sencha Touch 2.2 theme, and the mechanism to include additional icons for your custom themes provided by pictos or even other icon font sets such as IcoMoon.
