Description (last modified by bill)

Besides the domConstruct.create() issue I listed in #15226, there are a number of functions that should probably take an optional doc parameter in the same way that dom.byId(id, doc) and domConstruct.toDom(string, doc) do:


  • body() (actually, I just fixed this in [28401])


  • getBox() (could arguably pass in a window instead of a document, but document is more convenient)


  • isBodyLtr()
  • docScroll()
  • getIeDocumentElementOffset()
  • fixIeBiDiScrollLeft()

It looks like the missing doc parameters were just oversights, rather than design decisions, so I'll check in a fix. Let me know if the parameter was intentionally omitted.

In [28405]:

Add missing (optional) document parameter for various DOM methods, and update code (mainly dijit code) to pass in the document to those methods, fixes #15229 !strict.

Was withDoc() not enough?

It's possible to control the document used by these methods via withDoc() or withGlobal().

However, out of all the dom* and window methods, these were the only ones where using withDoc() was necessary. byId() and toDom() take a document parameter, so I followed that precedent. Many other methods infer the document from a DOMNode parameter, but that wasn't possible for the above methods.

Besides the consistency issue, passing a document parameter to these methods is faster and less code than using withDoc().
