#8716 closed defect (fixed)

[dojox.form] MultiComboBox fails to start

Reported by: dante Owned by: Douglas Hays
Priority: high Milestone: 1.3
Component: DojoX Form Version: 1.3.0b1

An error:

[Exception... "'Error: dojox.form.MultiComboBox template:nameAttrSetting' when calling method: [nsIDOMEventListener::handleEvent]" nsresult: "0x8057001c (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_JS_OBJECT)" location: "<unknown>" data: no]

Looks like the name attribute in the template is causing issues?

That gets set in postMixInProperties() in dijit... maybe you are missing a this.inherited() call?

Oh nevermind.... it's this weird architecture with ComboBoxMixin where the parent class is required to have it's own postMixInProperties call, like this:

postMixInProperties: function(){
	// this.inherited(arguments); // ??
	dijit.form.ComboBoxMixin.prototype.postMixInProperties.apply(this, arguments);
	dijit.form.ValidationTextBox.prototype.postMixInProperties.apply(this, arguments);

I think this is a holdover from before we understood how this.inherited() worked, ie that it called all the superclass and mixin functions.

(In [16775]) Fixes #8716. Changed ComboBox? and FilteringSelect? to make use of this.inherited.
