Hello I've created three functions for standard javascript alert and confirm replacement via dijit.

I've also provided dojox.widget.confirmValue the is a function that shows a confirmation dilaog that requires user input.

I've attached a patch with tests.

The main difference I've seen between my own confirmation dialog that I put together and the default js confirm("message") method was whether or not execution of the javascript stopped when you displayed the dialog.

If I recall correctly the default JS confirm method will stop execution of the executing javascript until the dialog is closed that way it can return the value that was entered (same with the alert dialog).

I couldn't find a way to make the dijit Dialog behave in that fashion. I'm guessing that this patch doesn't cover this use case since it seems to just be using dijit.Dialog. Is there even a way to accomplish this? If so could it be incorporated into this patch?

the answer is "no". there is no way to simulate the blocking nature of confirm() ... All variations on this patch I've seen work asyncronously by defining a confirm/cancel callback.

some variation of this will be in 1.5. I've seen it rewritten too many times.

With the ActionBar? example in dijit.Dialog tests I think this can be a reallllly simple subclass. Provide a few new API hooks for default button setups and normalize the API.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: assignedclosed

I am afraid that additional components such as this won't be considered for DojoX at this point and in Dojo 2.0 they will need to be a community package.

Packages can be submitted at or please view where we are headed for packages in Dojo 2.0:
