For reference, see this fiddle: and attached HTML test case.

  • Browser: Firefox 3.6.24, Chrome 15.0.874.106
  • Platform: Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (2.6.32-36-server SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux)
  • Steps: Create the page as shown in
    • isDebug: true, parseOnLoad: true
    • Declarative markup only
    • Create a BorderContainer?, place a DropDownButton? in any region without any dijit children widgets and refresh the page. The flow of the BorderContainer? will break.
    • Example:
      <button id="menuButton"
              data-dojo-props="title: 'The Menu'"
          <span id="menu_image">Menu</span>
          <!-- Uncomment this Menu item to see correct behavior -->
          <!-- <span id="buttonMenu"
                data-dojo-type="dijit.Menu">Foo Menu</span> -->
  • To fix: add a dijit.Menu child element into the button
  • Expected result: BorderContainer? should flow as expected with a DropDownButton? that does not have proper children
  • Tested versions in which defect can be recreated: 1.6, 1.7, 1.7.1

This is expected; it's unsupported to create a DropDownButton without a drop down.
