#1887 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Option groups in ComboBox widget

Description

The ComboBox? widget currently does not handle option groups (<optgroup> html elements). We are using a hacked version of the current widget that does support this feature. However, we are keen to see this feature built into the standard widget.

Would be happy to do the work ourselves (CLA already on file) but obviously need to coordinate with widget "owner".

This sounds like an interesting idea, but it needs to be supported not just in markup but in dojo.data too; not sure how to do that. Anyway, I think it's an enhancement that should go into dojox/ in some kind of super-autocompleter widget, not the base dijit code.

I'd be happy to withdraw this request. We needed something quickly so we have written a custom combobox component that achieves what we require. Unfortunately, our custom component deviates substantially from the standard dojo component. This effectively means that it can't realistically be merged into the standard codebase. While it would have been better to avoid custom components, I think we are pretty much committed to that path now.

OK, then I'll close it; if other people turn out to want something similar then maybe your code should be checked into dojox, but for now I'll just close this bug.
