Support on() method for connecting to widget events:

myWidget.on("click", func)

(This is coming for free with a cleanup I'm doing, but filing a ticket for reference.)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [25033]) Refactor widget deferred connect code to leverage new event modules. As a fringe benefit this adds an on() method to _WidgetBase, so code can do myWidget.on("click", func) instead of dojo.connect(myWidget, "onClick", ...).

Refs #5417, #12451. Fixes #12986 !strict.

(In [25051]) improve regex, and change where dojo.hitch() is call (on() itself shouldn't set any scope for the callback), refs #12986 !strict

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by bill

(In [25056]) Revise "deferred connect" refactor to use stub functions again (like in 1.6), so that parser knows that onMouseMove etc. is a function. Refs #12986, fixes #12999 !strict.

(In [25057]) Remove duplicate API documentation. _Widget.on() "inherits" the documentation from _WidgetBase.on(). Refs #12986 !strict.

In [26317]:

No need to support on("onclick", ...) etc., just on("click", ...). Refs #12986 !strict.

In [26348]:

Make on() case insensitive, since users will often expect widget.on("mousemove", fn) to work (similar to on(node, "mousemove", fl)), rather than on("mouseMove") with capital letters. Also allow on() calls to attach to methods without "on" prefix, ex: widget.on("resize", ...). Refs #12986 !strict.
