dijit.Tooltip fails in multiple dojo page

Reported by: Ryan Smith Owned by: James Burke
Priority: high Milestone: 1.2
Component: General Version: 1.1.1

Blocked By: Blocking:


We have moved to Dojo 1.1.1 and are using the new scopeMap to support multiple dojos in the page, as described here:

Even after moving to a scoped dojo 1.1.1, using a second dojo with version 1.0.2 or 1.1.1 with the Tooltip still causes the same error.

The page loads, and the Tooltips work, but if we click anywhere we get an " 'undefined' is null or not an object.

The problem is the registering of events on the tooltip in the portlet dojo is impacting the scoped dojo's ie listeners

array indices. The scoped dojo._getIeDispatcher function has two handlers ( var h) registered, and the listeners array

(var ls) contains indices into the handlers. Without the portlet the ls [] = {1,0}. Add the portlet to the page, and


Thus the call h[ls[i]] will call h[6], which is not defined because h has length 2.

I've attached a sample html test case to reproduce the problem. I didn't include the two dojos due to file size, but I can if requested. They are just the built versions from the community source project.

Traced the problem to the IE event code in dojo._base.event. It is grabbing a globally visible object, a DOM node, or in this particular case, dijit._base.focus adds a mousedown event to the document. Then, asking for a source[method]._listeners.

Both versions of Dojo access this array. I am attaching a patch that seems to fix the issue, but I want to confirm with sjmiles before committing.

Resolution: fixed

(In [14198]) Fixes #7052. the _listeners array was effectively a public, global value. Making it unique per dojo._scopeName. Reviewed change with sjmiles. Tested on IE 6. \!strict
