Description (last modified by bill)

Currently Tree (dijit._tree.dndSource::onDndDrop()) supports dragging of elements from a list into the tree, at which point it calls However, it doesn't support dragging nodes from within the tree (which would require modifying the children attribute on the old parent and the new parent):

  1. if node has an old parent, remove item from that parent's list of children items
  2. if node has a new parent, add item to that parent's list of children items

(In [12020]) Get basic tree node --> tree node DnD working. Still some kinks to work out and possibly a refactoring to hide special treatment of top level data store items in a data store decorator (aka wrapper). Refs #5560.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [12309]) - Fix DnD for Tree, specifically when dragging elements within the Tree

  • Refactor Tree to take a single item as the root node, rather than a set of items specified by a query. The root node of the tree can be hidden via the showRoot parameter. Query and label parameters deprecated; will be removed in v2.
  • implemented ForestStoreDecorator? which wraps a given store, mapping all items matching a given query as children of a synthesized root item. Use this to connect Tree to stores that don't have a single root item.

Reason for changes: The old tree design worked for simple cases but broke down for DnD. Refactoring let's users define handlers for when a node is added/removed from the top of the tree (ie, when it changes between a top level item and a child of another item, or vice-versa), and for efficiently detecting changes to the list/order of top level items (and then notifying Tree).

Note that Tree DnD won't work with ItemFileWriteStore? and nested data (rather than _reference). See #5786 about that.

Fixes #4544, #4977, #5560, refs #5536

(In [13110]) Remove some unused code from test file, causing spurious errors on IE. Refs #5560
