#7285 closed defect (fixed)

dijit._base.place() methods are super-confusing

Description

the current placeOnScreenAroundPoint, placeOnScreenAroundNode, etc methods all take a map of location preferences (e.g., "BT", "BL"), but their interaction with the actual placement code seems tenuous and difficult to predict. Furthermore, it's not documented nearly well enough by the in-code docs. The docs need to be updated and book pages added/expanded for these methods.

(In [14611]) Proper documentation for dijit.placeOnScreen*() functions. Fixes #7285 !strict. (The aroundCorners argument is by it's nature confusing, but for back-compat concerns the best we can do now is to document it.)
