#10733 closed defect (fixed)

RadioButton cannot take attribute label

Reported by: David Moore Owned by: bill
Priority: high Milestone: 1.5

I am trying to put a dijit.form.RadioButton? into a dojox.layout.TableContainer?, all created programmatically. To get a field displaying, I need to set the "label" attribute on the RadioButton?. An error is thrown on that. After tracing down, this is because setting label on RadioButton? sets the innerHTML of the containerNode, and containerNode is null. I created the RadioButton? with the following code:

var required = dijit.byId("_required");
if (!required)
    required = new dijit.form.RadioButton({id:"_required",
            name: "required",
            "label": "Required"

I worked around the issue with the following code (clearly showing that the issue is the containerNode):

var required = dijit.byId("_required");
if (!required)
    // TODO: This is a workaround for a dojo bug - a programmatically created RadioButton has no containerNode
    reqnode = dojo.create("div", {"id":"_required", "style": "display: none"}, basic_options.domNode);
    required = new dijit.form.RadioButton({id:"_required",
            name: "required"
    required.containerNode = reqnode;

You could also just use "title" rather than "label" for the RadioButton attribute.

But I'll checkin a fix.

(In [21351]) Don't fail if app specifies a label for a dijit.form.CheckBox. Although label doesn't mean anything to CheckBox itself, it's referenced by dojox.layout.TableContainer (with a dijit.form.CheckBox child).

Also removing label from dijit.form.Button.attributeMap, since Button has a _setLabelAttr() method.

Fixes #10733 !strict.
