request: dojoAttachPoint should have currentPoint method

let's say we have dojoAttachPoint=myPoint; dojoAttachEvent=myEvent;

It should be possible to detect from which point we've got an event: function myEvent(e){

alert(e.currentPoint); should be "myPoint" in a alert box


or something similar. This method would be usefull if you have one common function for several dojopoints.

how is this different from currentTarget?

currentTarget returns pointer to html (dom?.) currentPoint should return a name of an dojoAttachPoint.

Let's say I have 5 editors. They have common dojoAttachEvent="makeEditable" method but different dojoAttachPoint="editor1" (for first one) in a template file.

So method e.currentPoint should return editor1, editor2 and so on. Today I need to create separate dojoAttachEvent for each editor.

In general, it would be usefull to have access to the name of dojoAttachPoint. For example, like this:

dojoAccessPoint[]; this.dojoAccessPointeditor1?.innerHTML = "something";

I found similar resolved request but the solution with array is not enough, because all Points are anonymous.
