Properties

__skipInputEvent

_aroundNode

The node to display the popup around. Can be set via a data-dojo-attach-point assignment. If missing, then domNode will be used.

_arrowWrapperNode

Will set CSS class dijitUpArrow, dijitDownArrow, dijitRightArrow etc. on this node depending on where the drop down is set to be positioned. Can be set via a data-dojo-attach-point assignment. If missing, then _buttonNode will be used.

_attrPairNames

_blankGif

Path to a blank 1x1 image. Used by <img> nodes in templates that really get their image via CSS background-image.

_blankValue

_buttonInputDisabled

_buttonNode

The button/icon/node to click to display the drop down. Can be set via a data-dojo-attach-point assignment. If missing, then either focusNode or domNode (if focusNode is also missing) will be used.

_earlyTemplatedStartup

A fallback to preserve the 1.0 - 1.3 behavior of children in templates having their startup called before the parent widget fires postCreate. Defaults to 'false', causing child widgets to have their .startup() called immediately before a parent widget .startup(), but always after the parent .postCreate(). Set to 'true' to re-enable to previous, arguably broken, behavior.

_focusManager

_popupStateNode

The node to set the popupActive class on. Can be set via a data-dojo-attach-point assignment. If missing, then focusNode or _buttonNode (if focusNode is missing) will be used.

_setClassAttr

_setDirAttr

_setIdAttr

_setLangAttr

_setTabIndexAttr

_setTypeAttr

_singleNodeTemplate

_skipNodeCache

_started

startup() has completed.

_stopClickEvents

When set to false, the click events will not be stopped, in case you want to use them in your subclass

active

True if mouse was pressed while over this widget, and hasn't been released yet

alt

Corresponds to the native HTML <input> element's attribute.

aria-label

attributeMap

Deprecated. Instead of attributeMap, widget should have a _setXXXAttr attribute for each XXX attribute to be mapped to the DOM.

attributeMap sets up a "binding" between attributes (aka properties) of the widget and the widget's DOM. Changes to widget attributes listed in attributeMap will be reflected into the DOM.

For example, calling set('title', 'hello') on a TitlePane will automatically cause the TitlePane's DOM to update with the new title.

attributeMap is a hash where the key is an attribute of the widget, and the value reflects a binding to a:

  • DOM node attribute

    focus: {node: "focusNode", type: "attribute"} Maps this.focus to this.focusNode.focus

  • DOM node innerHTML

    title: { node: "titleNode", type: "innerHTML" } Maps this.title to this.titleNode.innerHTML

  • DOM node innerText

    title: { node: "titleNode", type: "innerText" } Maps this.title to this.titleNode.innerText

  • DOM node CSS class

    myClass: { node: "domNode", type: "class" } Maps this.myClass to this.domNode.className

If the value is an array, then each element in the array matches one of the formats of the above list.

There are also some shorthands for backwards compatibility:

  • string --> { node: string, type: "attribute" }, for example:
"focusNode" ---> { node: "focusNode", type: "attribute" }
  • "" --> { node: "domNode", type: "attribute" }

autoComplete

If user types in a partial string, and then tab out of the <input> box, automatically copy the first entry displayed in the drop down list to the <input> field

autoWidth

Set to true to make the drop down at least as wide as this widget. Set to false if the drop down should just be its default width

baseClass

class

commonRes

containerNode

Designates where children of the source DOM node will be placed. "Children" in this case refers to both DOM nodes and widgets. For example, for myWidget:

<div data-dojo-type=myWidget>
    <b> here's a plain DOM node
    <span data-dojo-type=subWidget>and a widget</span>
    <i> and another plain DOM node </i>
</div>

containerNode would point to:

<b> here's a plain DOM node
<span data-dojo-type=subWidget>and a widget</span>
<i> and another plain DOM node </i>

In templated widgets, "containerNode" is set via a data-dojo-attach-point assignment.

containerNode must be defined for any widget that accepts innerHTML (like ContentPane or BorderContainer or even Button), and conversely is null for widgets that don't, like TextBox.

cssStateNodes

List of sub-nodes within the widget that need CSS classes applied on mouse hover/press and focus

Each entry in the hash is a an attachpoint names (like "upArrowButton") mapped to a CSS class names (like "dijitUpArrowButton"). Example:

{
    "upArrowButton": "dijitUpArrowButton",
    "downArrowButton": "dijitDownArrowButton"
}

The above will set the CSS class dijitUpArrowButton to the this.upArrowButton DOMNode when it

is hovered, etc.

defaultDelay

dir

Bi-directional support, as defined by the HTML DIR attribute. Either left-to-right "ltr" or right-to-left "rtl". If undefined, widgets renders in page's default direction.

disabled

Should this widget respond to user input? In markup, this is specified as "disabled='disabled'", or just "disabled".

displayedValue

For subclasses like ComboBox where the displayed value (ex: Kentucky) and the serialized value (ex: KY) are different, this represents the displayed value.

Setting 'displayedValue' through set('displayedValue', ...) updates 'value', and vice-versa. Otherwise 'value' is updated from 'displayedValue' periodically, like onBlur etc.

TODO: move declaration to MappedTextBox? Problem is that ComboBox references displayedValue, for benefit of FilteringSelect.

dndType

Defines a type of widget.

domNode

This is our visible representation of the widget! Other DOM Nodes may by assigned to other properties, usually through the template system's data-dojo-attach-point syntax, but the domNode property is the canonical "top level" node in widget UI.

dropDown

The widget to display as a popup. This widget must be defined before the startup function is called.

dropDownPosition

This variable controls the position of the drop down. It's an array of strings with the following values:

  • before: places drop down to the left of the target node/widget, or to the right in the case of RTL scripts like Hebrew and Arabic
  • after: places drop down to the right of the target node/widget, or to the left in the case of RTL scripts like Hebrew and Arabic
  • above: drop down goes above target node
  • below: drop down goes below target node

The list is positions is tried, in order, until a position is found where the drop down fits within the viewport.

encodeSearchText

fetchProperties

Mixin to the store's fetch. For example, to set the sort order of the ComboBox menu, pass:

{ sort: [{attribute:"name",descending: true}] }

To override the default queryOptions so that deep=false, do:

{ queryOptions: {ignoreCase: true, deep: false} }

focused

This widget or a widget it contains has focus, or is "active" because it was recently clicked.

forceWidth

Set to true to make the drop down exactly as wide as this widget. Overrides autoWidth.

highlightMatch

One of: "first", "all" or "none".

If the ComboBox/FilteringSelect opens with the search results and the searched string can be found, it will be highlighted. If set to "all" then will probably want to change queryExpr parameter to '${0}'

Highlighting is only performed when labelType is "text", so as to not interfere with any HTML markup an HTML label might contain.

hovering

True if cursor is over this widget

id

A unique, opaque ID string that can be assigned by users or by the system. If the developer passes an ID which is known not to be unique, the specified ID is ignored and the system-generated ID is used instead.

ignoreCase

Set true if the query should ignore case when matching possible items

intermediateChanges

Fires onChange for each value change or only on demand

item

This is the item returned by the dojo/store/api/Store implementation that provides the data for this ComboBox, it's the currently selected item.

labelAttr

The entries in the drop down list come from this attribute in the dojo.data items. If not specified, the searchAttr attribute is used instead.

labelType

Specifies how to interpret the labelAttr in the data store items. Can be "html" or "text".

lang

Rarely used. Overrides the default Dojo locale used to render this widget, as defined by the HTML LANG attribute. Value must be among the list of locales specified during by the Dojo bootstrap, formatted according to RFC 3066 (like en-us).

lowercase

Converts all characters to lowercase if true. Default is false.

maxHeight

The max height for our dropdown. Any dropdown taller than this will have scrollbars. Set to 0 for no max height, or -1 to limit height to available space in viewport

maxLength

HTML INPUT tag maxLength declaration.

minimumNumberOfChar

The minimum number of character that is valid for search. tags: Protected

name

Name used when submitting form; same as "name" attribute or plain HTML elements

ownerDocument

The document this widget belongs to. If not specified to constructor, will default to srcNodeRef.ownerDocument, or if no sourceRef specified, then to dojo/_base/window::doc

pageSize

Specifies a maximum size (in pixels) for this widget when resized by a splitter.

placeHolder

propercase

Converts the first character of each word to uppercase if true.

query

A query that can be passed to store to initially filter the items. ComboBox overwrites any reference to the searchAttr and sets it to the queryExpr with the user's input substituted.

queryExpr

This specifies what query ComboBox/FilteringSelect sends to the data store, based on what the user has typed. Changing this expression will modify whether the drop down shows only exact matches, a "starting with" match, etc. Use it in conjunction with highlightMatch. dojo.data query expression pattern. ${0} will be substituted for the user text. * is used for wildcards. ${0}* means "starts with", *${0}* means "contains", ${0} means "is"

readOnly

Should this widget respond to user input? In markup, this is specified as "readOnly". Similar to disabled except readOnly form values are submitted.

res

Resource object, for getting text. tags: Protected

scrollOnFocus

On focus, should this widget scroll into view?

searchAttr

Search for items in the data store where this attribute (in the item) matches what the user typed

searchDelay

Delay in milliseconds between when user types something and we start searching based on that value

selectOnClick

If true, all text will be selected when focused with mouse

srcNodeRef

pointer to original DOM node

store

Reference to data provider object used by this ComboBox. The store must accept an object hash of properties for its query. See query and queryExpr for details.

style

HTML style attributes as cssText string or name/value hash

tabIndex

Order fields are traversed when user hits the tab key

templatePath

Path to template (HTML file) for this widget relative to dojo.baseUrl. Deprecated: use templateString with require([... "dojo/text!..."], ...) instead

templateString

textDir

Bi-directional support, the main variable which is responsible for the direction of the text. The text direction can be different than the GUI direction by using this parameter in creation of a widget.

Allowed values:

  1. "ltr"
  2. "rtl"
  3. "auto" - contextual the direction of a text defined by first strong letter.

By default is as the page direction.

title

HTML title attribute.

For form widgets this specifies a tooltip to display when hovering over the widget (just like the native HTML title attribute).

For TitlePane or for when this widget is a child of a TabContainer, AccordionContainer, etc., it's used to specify the tab label, accordion pane title, etc.

tooltip

When this widget's title attribute is used to for a tab label, accordion pane title, etc., this specifies the tooltip to appear when the mouse is hovered over that text.

trim

Removes leading and trailing whitespace if true. Default is false.

type

Corresponds to the native HTML <input> element's attribute.

uppercase

Converts all characters to uppercase if true. Default is false.

value

Corresponds to the native HTML <input> element's attribute.

Methods

protected method _fillContent ( source )

Relocate source contents to templated container node. this.containerNode must be able to receive children, or exceptions will be thrown.

Parameters

protected method _refreshState ( )

After the user types some characters, etc., this method is called to check the field for validity etc. The base method in dijit/form/TextBox does nothing, but subclasses override.


protected method _setStyleAttr ( value )

Sets the style attribute of the widget according to value, which is either a hash like {height: "5px", width: "3px"} or a plain string

Parameters

protected method applyTextDir ( element , text )

The function overridden in the _BidiSupport module, originally used for setting element.dir according to this.textDir. In this case does nothing.

Parameters

protected method closeDropDown ( focus )

Closes the drop down on this widget

Parameters

protected method compare ( val1 , val2 )

Compare 2 values (as returned by get('value') for this widget).

Parameters

protected method connect ( obj , event , method )

Deprecated, will be removed in 2.0, use this.own(on(...)) or this.own(aspect.after(...)) instead.

Connects specified obj/event to specified method of this object and registers for disconnect() on widget destroy.

Provide widget-specific analog to dojo.connect, except with the implicit use of this widget as the target object. Events connected with this.connect are disconnected upon destruction.

Parameters
Examples
var btn = new Button();
// when foo.bar() is called, call the listener we're going to
// provide in the scope of btn
btn.connect(foo, "bar", function(){
    console.debug(this.toString());
});

protected method defer ( fcn , delay )

Wrapper to setTimeout to avoid deferred functions executing after the originating widget has been destroyed. Returns an object handle with a remove method (that returns null) (replaces clearTimeout).

Parameters

protected method destroyRendering ( preserveDom )

Destroys the DOM nodes associated with this widget

Parameters

protected method disconnect ( handle )

Deprecated, will be removed in 2.0, use handle.remove() instead.

Disconnects handle created by connect.

Parameters

protected method doHighlight ( label , find )

Highlights the string entered by the user in the menu. By default this highlights the first occurrence found. Override this method to implement your custom highlighting.

Parameters

protected method dropDownClass ( )

Dropdown widget class, which would be used to create a widget, to show the search result. Subclasses should specify this.


protected method emit ( type , eventObj , callbackArgs )

Used by widgets to signal that a synthetic event occurred, ex:

myWidget.emit("attrmodified-selectedChildWidget", {}).

Emits an event on this.domNode named type.toLowerCase(), based on eventObj. Also calls onType() method, if present, and returns value from that method. By default passes eventObj to callback, but will pass callbackArgs instead, if specified. Modifies eventObj by adding missing parameters (bubbles, cancelable, widget).

Parameters

protected method filter ( val )

Auto-corrections (such as trimming) that are applied to textbox value on blur or form submit.
