Ext JS 4: Grid emptyText

As of Ext JS 4, the emptyText that can display in grid has no styling. It just sits smack up against the top and left sides of the grid. One simple way to style the text is to add some css and put the emptyText inside a span.

.emptyText {
    position: relative;
    top: 10px;
    left: 10px;

Of course, more styling such as color and font-size could be added.

And then, when defining your grid, just do this:

	xtype: 'grid',
	viewConfig: {
		emptyText: '<span class="emptyText">No rows found.</span>'

I haven’t started using Ext JS 4.1 yet, so I’m not sure if the lack of style for the emptyText will still apply. But until then, this makes the empty text look a little better.
