I'm using OpenLayrs-3.6.0 and Extjs-6.0. I want to define GeoMap Panel class like this. In other words, I want to rewrite GeoExt.panel.Map in geoExt-2 library. for this I define a class as follow:

Ext.define('MyApp2.view.geo.Map', {
    extend: 'Ext.panel.Panel',
    requires: [
    xtype: 'geoMap',
    layout: 'fit',
    map: null,
    initComponent: function() {
        var me = this;

        var html = '<div id="myId" class="MyId" ></div>';

        mm = me.map;
        Ext.apply(me, {html: html});

        me.map = new ol.Map({
            target: 'myId',
            layers: [
                new ol.layer.Tile({
                    title: "Global Imagery",
                    source: new ol.source.TileWMS({
                        url: 'http://localhost:8080/geoserver/world/wms?service=WMS',
                        params: {LAYERS: 'world:worldRaster', VERSION: '1.1.1'}
            view: new ol.View({
                projection: 'EPSG:4326',
                center: [35, 41],
                zoom: 4

The strategy is that create a panel and set its html with: <div id="map" class="map"></div>. I then create a ol.map instance and set its target with: "map"(the "id" of div in html panel).

This solution does not work, How do I do?


Someone knows a better solution?

    geoext only works with extjs 4. Except if you are doing something completely custom it wont work. Jun 9 '15 at 8:38
  • I'm developing **my**GeoExt.panel.Map. I don't use GeoExt Jun 9 '15 at 9:51

If you want to use OpenLayers 3 with Ext JS 6 you should have a look at https://github.com/KaiVolland/geoext3. It will be merged into https://github.com/geoext/geoext3 in about two weeks.

Even if you don't want to use GeoExt 3 itself, you could use some code of the GeoExt.panel.Map and GeoExt.panel.MapController.

The most interesting part might be the onResize method in the controller:

onResize: function(){
    // Get the corresponding view of the controller (the mapPanel).
    var mapPanel = this.getView();
        mapPanel.mapRendered = true;
    } else {
  • yes thanks a lot. An irrelevant question: You're also active in the project OpenLayers 3? When 3D section is completed? Jun 9 '15 at 13:28
  • I'm not really active in OpenLayers 3 so i don't know much about the 3D-Section. But you can find releases of the cesium integration library here: github.com/openlayers/ol3-cesium/releases

in Ext 4.2 I am using Container inside of Panel: added in initComponent:

    th.items = [
        Ext.create('Ext.Component', {
            initComponent: function () {
                var me = this;
                th.mapContainerId = me.id;
                me.on("boxready", function () {

                me.on("resize", function () {
                    if (th.mapInst) {


th is Panel, and me is Container. It prefered to initialize the map instanse once when Container is ready and update map size when Outer Container's size changed
