Thought of the day...

Patch for extjs ItemSelector

At work, extjs was the first javascript library we used. It provides very nice UI and probably has the best documentation and forum support available among other similar libraries. We modified its code to provide legend support which is nothing but title in the custom ItemSelector ui element. Below is the patch(not a big deal but i didn't want to loose this change so thought to post here).

         this.fromMultiselect = new Ext.ux.form.MultiSelect(Ext.applyIf(this.multiselects[0], msConfig[0]));

And the result looks something like below

मुआ क्या कब्रिस्ताना माहौल है
सब ने खुद को किसी गम-ए-कब्र में दफना रखा है?
