#8451 closed enhancement (wontfix)

NodeList trigger event capabilities

There is a FIXME at the bottom of NodeList.js which looks to attempt to implement something like:


which will trigger any attached click events for the matched nodes (null callback triggers, passing function would register)

There are probably some technical issues as to why this is not active code, but I'm making this ticket to expose (or rehash?) that discussion.

+1 for the feature from me, but it looks like the implementation is incomplete? Instead of looking for callbacks attached, couldn't we synthesize a dom event originating at the node and just let the browser fire them naturally?

In trying to do this for the jquery compat module, it seems a bit involved: I am not sure I have it down quite correctly, but it seems like in some (most?) cases triggering the event handlers by calling a method on the dom node does not work. It can be simulated though if you have a list of connects on a node.

I could be missing something though, and I would be glad to be shown the light. But if not, then this might also argue for tracking connects per dom node, iirc, something like what we did back in 0.4?

Now that we have dojo/on with it's emit() function, this is presumably just a few lines of code. OTOH, it doesn't seem like a terribly common operation, and user can already do it today via:

myNodeList.forEach(function(node){  on.emit(node, "click", {bubbles: true}); });

FYI, I don't see that FIXME at the bottom of NodeList anymore.

I would agree that this does not seem like a very common operation, and can now easily be done with a forEach and on.emit.
