#1052 closed enhancement (wontfix)

proposing getWidget(id) method that would create a widget if it doesnt exists

I am proposing helper method dojo.getWidget(id)

  • if widget already exists it would just return it
  • if it doesn't exists it would look for a node with given id and parse it into widget


var widget = dojo.widget.byId(id); if (widget) return widget; var xp = new dojo.xml.Parse(); return dojo.widget.getParser().createComponents(xp.parseElement(dojo.byId(id), null, true))[0];


It can be improved with createWidget() method after Ticket #1019 is resolved.

This is simple enough that users can just implement it themselves if they need it, and I haven't heard a lot of demand for it.
