DojoGrid bug: cannot select row while setValue is being called.

if you try to select a row while setValue is being called on a store, selection will not take.

I have attached a simple test that demonstrates the problem. If you start the test, you can select the second row no problem. However, if the button is clicked and setValue is called, then the second row cannot be selected.

var value = 40; var log = new Log(Log.DEBUG, Log.popupLogger);

function setValue() {

dojoStore.setValue(dojoGrid.getItem(1), 'trade', + value++);


function setValueLoop() {

setValue(); setTimeout('setValueLoop();', 100);

This was already discussed at dojo forum

"... as the row node is kept updating all the time, the native 'click' event is not triggered - only 'mousedown' --> 'mouseup' and that's the reason why row is not selected when clicked."

"Browser just doesn't have chance to fire the 'click' event since the row node is updated so quickly. Not sure how this will be suitable in your scenario, but when I'm changing the data updating frequency from 0.1 second to 0.5 second, it's working well for me in FF3.5 - and I think 0.5 second shall be a acceptable refreshing frequency for most cases."

Don't think there are any workaround when < 0.5s which is more like a limitation of browser, so closing as won't fix, we can reopen this if got any better ideas.
