newItem() doesn't return anything, that's the expected behavior, not an error. Are you asking to change that?

The thing is that people may have created their own models and they won't be returning anything from newItem().

ForestStoreModel? inherits TreeStoreModel? and newItem method in ForestStoreModel? has return value. In case of calling return this.inherite(arguments) it returns nothing cuase of TreeStoreModel?.newItem returns nothing.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

I see.

TreeStoreModel can't return a value, because it executes asynchronously, asking the store if there's already an item with the same id (and then waiting for an asynchronous response). It seems like ForestStoreModel should be doing the same thing.

The alternative approach is to not do that check for if an item already exists. But for backwards-compatibility reasons, that change would have to wait until 2.0, and TreeStoreModel and ForestStoreModel won't be ported to 2.0, because they will be replaced by an interface to, see #13781.

So, for #13781 I'll consider removing that "item already exists" check and always creating a new item, and returning whatever store.put() returns, which for is the id of the item.

For the existing TreeStoreModel and ForestStoreModel, I'm afraid (as I said above) that it's not possible to change them in 1.x, and they'll be removed for 2.0. Therefore marking this as wontfix.
