ExtJs Combo lastQuery

There’s a seemingly insignificant property in an ExtJs combo. It’s called lastQuery. It holds (no surprise here!) the query that has been used by a combo previously (for remote combo stores). Thing is, it affects the querying, too, because if you’re using the same query several times, the combo won’t refresh the list. That is, it won’t send the request again, it will get you a cached dataset.

If you want the data to be requeried each time though, there’s a way to do it:

var combo = new Ext.form.field.ComboBox({
    queryMode: 'remote',
    listeners: {
        // delete the previous query in the beforequery event or set
        // combo.lastQuery = null (this will reload the store the next time it expands)
        beforequery: function(qe){
            delete qe.combo.lastQuery;
