When Tooltip and PopupMenu2 co-exist in a page, PopupMenu2 doesn't collapse when mouse click outside

I have a page that contains both ToolTip? and PopupMenu2 widgets. I access the ToolTip? first, then I expand menu items from the PopupMenu2. Now if I click outside of the PopupMenu2, the menu items don't collapse (or don't respond to any mouse clicks outside). I saw this in FF1.5 and IE6.

Note that if I don't access ToolTip? first PopupMenu2 will work as expected.

You can see the bug in tests/widget/test_Menu2.html included in Dojo 0.4.1 source. First right click the context menu, after that, the menu popup in the main menu can't be clicked away.

I looked into the Dojo code and found the issue was caused by the PopupContainer? manager: it didn't register the latest top level menu if only a submenu was clicked. I came out with a hack to get around the problem, waiting for Dojo team to come out with a better solution.

The modified PopupContainer?.js file is attached.

Basically, I defined a getTopLevel() method in dojo.widget.PopupContainerBase?. And then modified the open() method as followings (line 126):


var topLevel = this.getTopLevel(); if (topLevel) {

var button = dojo.html.isNode(explodeSrc) ? explodeSrc : null;

dojo.widget.PopupManager?.opened(topLevel, button);



getTopLevel: function() {

var topLevel = this; while (topLevel && !topLevel.isTopLevel && topLevel.parent != null && topLevel.parent.setOpenedSubpopup != undefined) {

topLevel = topLevel.parent;


return topLevel;


Hope this will help.

BTW, the bug can be seen whenever you have more that one top level popup containers (PopMenu2, MenuBar2, Tooltip etc) in your page.

This is very much reproducible with out of box sample of 0.4.2 and 0.4.3 too.

  1. Open dojo/tests/widget/test_Menu2.html in a browser (Firefox).
  2. Mouseover or click Edit menu to see a popup sub menu.
  3. Click else where on the page. The menu closes back which is expected.
  4. Now right click anywhere on the page to see a context popup menu and close it by clicking elsewhere.
  5. Now follow step #2 above to see the Edit sub menu.
  6. Click elsewhere on the page. You will see tha the menu does not close. Worse yet is that you can open a context menu while the popmenu from the menubar is still open.
