dijit/form/_FormSelectWidget: this.options might be NodeList

Reported by: sunxcint Owned by: sunxcint
Priority: undecided Milestone: tbd
Component: Dijit - Form Version: 1.9.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


In _fillContent() of dijit/form/_FormSelectWidget, if query("> *", this.srcNodeRef) returns a NodeList with zero members, this.options will just be set as this zero-length NodeList, which could be the case when coding declaratively with a store as the data provider.

Even current code works(thanks to duck-typing), it will bring much confusion and difficulties to users taking this module as a base class. I suggest an empty array(i.e. []) be returned directly if is not null(or in any cases where query("> *", this.srcNodeRef) might return a zero-length NodeList).

Are you saying that zero members (as contrasted with, for example, 5 members) is a special case?

I looked at the current code and AFAICT it calls map() regardless of how many elements there are:

this.options =
		? query("> *", this.srcNodeRef).map(
			if(node.getAttribute("type") === "separator"){
				return { value: "", label: "", selected: false, disabled: false };
			return {
				value: (node.getAttribute("data-" + kernel._scopeName + "-value") || node.getAttribute("value")),
				label: String(node.innerHTML),
				// FIXME: disabled and selected are not valid on complex markup children (which is why we're
				// looking for data-dojo-value above.  perhaps we should data-dojo-props="" this whole thing?)
				// decide before 1.6
				selected: node.getAttribute("selected") || false,
				disabled: node.getAttribute("disabled") || false
		: [];
