Country selector with flag images in ExtJS

Based on the ExtJS-Tutorial on how to build a combo box with an icon, I built a component that can be used as a country selector in ExtJS.

Here you can find the code of the component:

Extreme.components.CountryCombo = Ext.extend(Ext.form.ComboBox, {
    constructor: function(config){
        var data;
        if (config.phoneLabels) {
            data = [['+49', '+49', 'ux-flag-de'], ['+43', '+43', 'ux-flag-at'], ['+41', '+41', 'ux-flag-ch'], ['+352', '+352', 'ux-flag-lu'], ['+432', '+432', 'ux-flag-li']];
        else {
            data = [['DE', 'Deutschland', 'ux-flag-de'], ['AT', 'Österreich', 'ux-flag-at'], ['CH', 'Schweiz', 'ux-flag-ch'], ['LU', 'Luxemburg', 'ux-flag-lu'], ['LI', 'Lichtenstein', 'ux-flag-li']];
, Ext.apply({
            store: new{
                fields: ['countryCode', 'countryName', 'countryFlag'],
                data: data
            plugins: new Ext.ux.plugins.IconCombo(),
            valueField: 'countryCode',
            displayField: 'countryName',
            iconClsField: 'countryFlag',
            triggerAction: 'all',
            mode: 'local'
        }, config));
Ext.reg('countrycombo', Extreme.components.CountryCombo);

It’s basically just a ComboBox using the IconCombo plugin with a predefined Store. The Store is in fact a SimpleStore which contains the country codes, labels and css classes for the icons for each country.
(If you wonder about the Extreme namespace, I am right now building a little component library for ExtJS).
The country selector is registered under the xtype of ‘countrycombo’. So here’s a small example of how to use it:

    var form = new Ext.FormPanel({
		items: [{
			xtype: 'countrycombo',
			fieldLabel: 'Country',
            name: 'country',
			anchor: '100%'
		frame: true,
		style: 'padding: 10px;',
		width: 250,
		labelWidth: 50
	var element = Ext.query('script[src$=country-combo.js]')[0];
	var renderElement = element.parentNode;

Thanks go also to FamFamFam where i retrieved the flag images.

Update: You can find this code and all my other ExtJS components bundled in a library called ‘extensive’. Enjoy the code and feel free to support the project by participating.

  2. Is it possible to turn each flag and country name into a link to another page – sorry I’m very very new to this.
