_TimeTextBox missing support for dropDownDefaultValue

Reported by: pykaso Owned by: pykaso
Priority: undecided Milestone: tbd
Component: Dijit - Form Version: 1.9.1

Since 1.9 is the usability of TimeTextBox? terrible :( One of the missing features is missing support for dropDownDefaultValue.

In 1.9: line 175: this._refDate = fromIso("T00:00:00");

In 1.8.5:

line 195: this._refDate = new Date(time - time % (clickableIncrementSeconds*1000));

The current value of the TimeTextBox? (if there is one) is highlighted in the drop down. For example. in test_TimeTextBox.html you'll see 5:45PM being highlighted.

The dropDownDefaultValue setting is for DateTextBox?, to control which month is displayed, but that concept is meaningless with TimeTextBox?.

What behavior were you expecting?

For reference, the code in _DateTimePicker.js that passes in the currently selected value is:

this.dropDown = new PopupProto({
        value: this.value,
	currentFocus: !this._isInvalidDate(value) ? value : this.dropDownDefaultValue,

currentFocus is also passed in, but is ignored for the _TimePicker drop down.

The code in _TimePicker.js that assigns the dijitTimePickerItemSelected class is:

if(this.value && !, date, this.constraints.selector)){
	div.selected = true;
	domClass.add(div, this.baseClass + "ItemSelected");
	this._selectedDiv = div;
	if(domClass.contains(div, this.baseClass + "Marker")){
		domClass.add(div, this.baseClass + "MarkerSelected");
		domClass.add(div, this.baseClass + "TickSelected");

	// Initially highlight the current value.   User can change highlight by up/down arrow keys
	// or mouse movement.
	this._highlightOption(div, true);

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

I think this bug should be re-opened. See

The current selected value is correctly highlighted however the dropdown does not scroll to this value. This is due to this.currentFocus being ignored by _TimePicker.js (see line 185. Something is saved in a var time but it is never used)

OK sure. Except, instead of reopening this I filed a new ticket, #18683. Note that this ticket is talking about dropDownDefaultValue, but it should also scroll to the current value (if there is a value in the <input>.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
