#3828 closed defect (invalid)

Programmatic Dialog has no closeNode

Reported by: guest Owned by: anonymous
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: General Version: 0.9
Keywords: Dialog closeNode Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


The startup method of the Dialog class is called only when the dialog is created by HTML. Since startup() does the following:

this.connect(closeNode, "onclick", "hide");

when the dialog is created programmatically this code has no chance to run.

This does not work:

connectDialog = new dijit.Dialog ({title: "Connect to a hub", closeNode: "dlgCancel", _duration: 10}, pane);

that is clicking the "dlgCancel" button in the dialog has no effect.

This instead works:

connectDialog = new dijit.Dialog ({title: "Connect to a hub"}, pane);
connectDialog.connect (dojo.byId ("dlgCancel"), "onclick", "hide"); // why closeNode does not work in the constructor?

For widgets with a startup() method, you are required to call that method when creating the widget programatically. This is particularly true for the layout widgets (like SplitContainer?), but also applies to Dialog and TooltipDialog?.

There might be a way to refactor those two widgets to not require a startup() call, but for now you need to call startup() on the widget (when creating programatically)
