#14606 closed defect (fixed)

Dojo 1.7.1 AMD mode and Prototype 1.7 "on" problem

Reported by: Matias Rask Owned by: Kris Zyp
Priority: high Milestone: 1.8
Component: Events Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: on, prototype Cc: [email protected]
Blocked By: Blocking:


When using Dojo 1.7.1 in AMD mode and Prototype 1.7 on the same page the following error is thrown in Google Chrome 16.0.912.63 when trying to instantiate a dijit.widget (which uses dojo/on)

note: prototype_compressed_1.js is actually the same thing as prototype.js

Uncaught TypeError: Object function (object, listener){				prototype_compressed_1.js:5560
		var keydownSignal = on(object, "keydown", function(evt){
			// munge key/charCode
			var k=evt.keyCode;
			// These are Windows Virtual Key Codes
			var unprintable = (k!=13 || (has("ie") >= 9 && !has("quirks"))) && k!=32 && (k!=27||!has("ie")) && (k<48||k>90) && (k<96||k>111) && (k<186||k>192) && (k<219||k>222) && k!=229;
			// synthesize keypress for most unprintables and CTRL-keys
				var c = unprintable ? 0 : k;
					if(k==3 || k==13){
						return, evt); // IE will post CTRL-BREAK, CTRL-ENTER as keypress natively
					}else if(c>95 && c<106){
						c -= 48; // map CTRL-[numpad 0-9] to ASCII
					}else if((!evt.shiftKey)&&(c>=65&&c<=90)){
						c += 32; // map CTRL-[A-Z] to lowercase
						c = _punctMap[c] || c; // map other problematic CTRL combinations to ASCII
				// simulate a keypress event
				var faux = _synthesizeEvent(evt, {type: 'keypress', faux: true, charCode: c});, faux);
					_trySetKeyCode(evt, faux.keyCode);
		var keypressSignal = on(object, "keypress", function(evt){
			var c = evt.charCode;
			c = c>=32 ? c : 0;

Bill Keese suspects that

on(object, "keydown", function(evt){ console.log(evt); });

produces the same result

I'm not sure if this is a Dojo problem or if the fault lies within Prototype.

We're seeing this problem as well, and will try to get a simple test case put together asap.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In [29140]:

Don't delegate to target on() method if event type is a function to avoid confusing on() handlers, fixes #14606 !strict

Kris, are you sure about this change? I already fixed #15559 so the problem in this ticket may have already been fixed... not sure, I don't understand it exactly.

I don't really care, but just wanted to point out that this change is stopping people from doing something like:

on.once(myWidget,, ...)

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by Kris Zyp

Bill, I can still reproduce this issue with #15559, so I don't think that fixes the issue. However, #15559 does mean that my fix isn't really correct for interacting with Dijit. But, alternately would this change [29140] fix #15559 so that _WidgetBase doesn't need to worry about function event types anymore (the function would delegate back to on() which would eventually lead to string event types that would be delegated to Dijit)?

OK. I agree your change is another way to fix #15559. Not sure why the patch in #15559 didn't fix this ticket though. Seems like either patch would solve the problem, but anyway I'll take your word for it.
