#7529 closed defect (fixed)

dijit.form.MultiSelect clobbers name attribute

Reported by: Josh Trutwin Owned by: Nathan Toone
Priority: high Milestone: 1.2
Component: Dijit - Form Version: 1.1.1
Keywords: dijit.form.MultiSelect name POST Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


I created a MultiSelect? with:

<select id="field_65" name="company_4_65[]" dojoType="dijit.form.MultiSelect?" size="10" MULTIPLE style="width: 250px;">

After parsing this was changed into this (inspected from FireBug?):

<select dojoattachevent="onchange: _onChange" dojoattachpoint="containerNode,focusNode" multiple="true" id="field_65" style="width: 250px;" tabindex="0" size="10" widgetid="field_65" class="">

The "name" attribute is gone, which results in no data registered in $_POST in php server code making this form field invisible to the backend.

I also tested without the brackets [] at the end of the name, same result.

Tested with: Firefox 2 browser on Linux, LAMP stack with PhP 5.2 on backend.

This behavior is also true on the dijit/tests/form/test_MultiSelect.html test file:

<select id="select3" multiple="true" name="select3"

dojoType="dijit.form.MultiSelect?" style="height:200px; width:175px; border:5px solid #ededed;">


<select dojoattachevent="onchange: _onChange" dojoattachpoint="containerNode,focusNode" multiple="true" id="select3" style="border: 5px solid rgb(237, 237, 237); height: 200px; width: 175px;" tabindex="0" size="7" widgetid="select3" class="">

name="select3" no longer present.

adding this to templateString:


fixes this issue, but not sure if that causes other problems?

Yah, seems good. You would think that "name" would go in attributeMap but it doesn't in other widgets; apparently for some browsers it needs to be set initially rather than afterwards, or the form doesn't submit right.
