#12407 closed defect (wontfix)

JSonRestStore doesn't compute the results count correctly

Reported by: rdunklau Owned by: Kris Zyp
Priority: high Milestone: tbd
Component: DojoX Data Version: 1.6.0rc1
Keywords: ServiceStore scroll data Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


How to reproduce:

1) Create a DataGrid? based on a JSONRestStore.

2) Scroll to the bottom

What happens:

When reaching the bottom of the scrollbar, only the last fetched items are displayed, and the scrollbar disappears. Thiss seems to be caused by the "rowCount" being set to the last result set size

What should happen:

The grid rowcount should be set accordingly to the real result set size, not the last fetched page.

This code in JSonRestStore seems to be responsible for the bad behavior:

	_processResults: function(results, deferred){
			// index the results
			var count = results.length;
			// if we don't know the length, and it is partial result, we will guess that it is twice as big, that will work for most widgets
			return {totalCount:deferred.fullLength || (deferred.request.count == count ? (deferred.request.start || 0) + count * 2 : count), items: results};

Replacing count when fewer items are fetched with :

return {totalCount:deferred.fullLength || (deferred.request.count == count ? (deferred.request.start || 0) + count * 2 : count + deferred.request.start), items: results};

seems to resolve the bug.

I don't think this is a JRS bug, though. I think you have an error in your service. JRS uses headers to control the size of the data and only resorts to the resultset size if the headers aren't set. You need to be setting the headers properly in your response. See JRS doc:

Please verify that you're sending back the right header.

Thanks, I missed the "total count" part of the range headers, it solved my problem. However, I think my point is still valid: when the headers are not present, the result count could be returned as a "best-guess", thus allowing an implementer not to compute the total count on the service side.
