Tree selection broken due to onblur and dojo.html.toggleShowing

We've encountered this problem in 0.4.3, but it may be present in later releases. I'm unsure how to translate the test scenario into 0.9.x-speak.

I will attach a test file that uses AOL's CDN to load dojo 0.4.3.

The scenario contains a TreeV3 widget and an HTML text box. For the TreeV3's TreeSelectorV3, dojo.event.topic.subscribe causes a debug statement to be printed on each node selection. For the text box, blur events cause a debug statement and they hide/show some textual content above the tree.

We're seeing that, from focus within the text box, clicking directly on the tree triggers onblur and hides/shows the text content, but it never triggers the tree selection event.

If the onblur doesn't trigger the hide/show (comment out the line in the test file), then the tree selection event does fire.

Our expectation is that showing/hiding the textual content will not effect whether or not the tree selection event fires.

This is reproducible in IE7 and FF2.

If, in the course of investigating this, you find any workarounds please let me know.

For FF2: The same problem exists if I connect to 'onchange' instead of 'onblur'. Connecting around or after the onblur shows the same behavior. Setting a timeout to delay the toggleShowing call, e.g. dojo.lang.setTimeout(dojo.html.toggleShowing, 250, dojo.byId('someContent')) works but is sensitive to the delay used.

For FF2: Using toggleVisibility instead of toggleShowing does behave as expected. Having the hidden/shown block placed below the tree works as expected.

Added attachment nodojo13187 which reproduces the problem without dojo in FF2. The recreate breaks on IE7.

Looks like this is either me not understanding how onblur and onclick interact with each other, or else it's a browser bug.

Looks like this is neither a dojo nor a mozilla bug but your misunderstanding. The onclick event happens on mouse up , and since the element you are pressing moves while the mouse is down, it never receives the mouse up event. (At the point that you release the mouse button the cursor is no longer over a different element.)
