GeoExt Resources

The GeoExt library contains a wealth of functionality. Though the developers have worked hard to provide examples of that functionality and have organized the code in a way that allows other experienced developers to find their way around, newcomers may find it a challenge to get started from scratch.

Learn by Example

New users will most likely find diving into the GeoExt’s example code and experimenting with the library’s possible functionality the most useful way to begin.

In addition, the Ext JS and OpenLayers examples are a valuable knowledge base, especially if you are getting started with GeoExt and have not used Ext JS or OpenLayers before.

Browse the Documentation

For further information on specific topics, browse the GeoExt documentation. Especially the tutorials and the introduction to core concepts may be useful for newcomers.

Find the API Reference

After understanding the basic components that make-up and control a mapping application, search the API reference documentation for details on method signatures and object properties.

The GeoExt API Reference links to Ext JS and OpenLayers API docs for further reference. The root of these can be found here:
