Hi Jay,

I've read through your chapter on listeners and tried using the principles in a 4.02 environment but am stumped. I wan't to be able to fire an event in a view based on the failure/success of a form submission. The view will fire the event and the controller will act upon it via a listener.

I have built an archive which hopefully shows where I am at. I have tried listening for my own generated events and also for render: events from the framework. The render: listeners are part of my trying to work out how to see the events and these are not always successful so I guess there is some principle I am missing big time!
I have pulled out the ext and famfam folders leaving just a few KB of my code here:

If you could point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated.

Re: events and listeners problem
I don't see anything about events at a quick glance. I just saw a mock ext js app registration. <confused>

Re: events and listeners problem
Thanks for the reply Jay - the skeleton code was supposed to show what I was trying at the time.

In the end I did created a listener in the Login Controller like this:

init: function() {
console.log('Initialized Login controller.');
this.application.addListener({ // add to use a handler in the main application control script
'loginsuccess': this.application.doLoginSuccess
