#9508 closed enhancement (wontfix)

implement dictionnary methods to retrieve keys based on provided value

Current implementation of dojox.collections.Dictionnary (rev. 18735) allows to retrieve values based on keys, but I did not find any method to retrieve one or more keys of a provided value.

Since I did felt the need for it, I made a patch attached to this ticket.

If there is another way to retrieve dictionary key(s) by providing a dictionary value, I apologize for the waste of time.

Regards, Remy

I actually didn't include these methods on purpose, believe it or not; finding keys based on a value is kind of deceptive, particularly if you have something like a bool for a value or even an object.

Going to punt this one for 1.5 and push it back to 1.6, and maybe ask the community at large if this is a useful thing.
