    I've been working on my logo. I pathfinder'd the P out of the B and now the pieces are grouped. When I apply a gradient from the gradient panel, I can't seem to adjust it with the gradient tool the same...

    Thanks for keeping the home fires burning for us all this time, Miss Kittie. It is sad to see the QOTW go, but there just haven't as many jokes of late.

    Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy...

    Your last sentence holds alot of truth. Members are socializing elsewhere. It's only a matter of time before the traffic doesn't support the upkeep.

  • Cleaning up dojo code

    I've been assigned to clean up the front-end code on a website that uses the dojo library for most of its client side interaction. The dojo docs are terrible and I would like to accomplish a separation between behavior and structure yet this seems somewhat impossible given the requirement of adding invalid attributes such as dojoType to elements in the HTML.

    So my question amounts to is there a way to handle the application of these attributes dynamically or create the dojox and digit objects manually by passing in my own nodes rather then having the add dojoType, etc attributes to elements? I am more then familiar with JavaScript, I just need to find a way to remove all this obtrusive code that dojo requires so the pages are valid.

    Links, blogs anything would be helpful at this point. I have already looked through multiple searches on google with very little. I rather not make this thread a library debate. If you have something to contribute then go ahead but remarks like dojo is worthless are not going to help. I know dojo is worthless but the site is functional with it and I just need to clean up some the code so that is what I'm looking to accomplish - not a complete overall or transition to another library.

    thanks

    For reference:

    Code:
    // example lightbox
    
    // grab element node
    var objImg = dojo.byId('my-image');
    
    // obtain reference and turn into node
    var objDojoxImg = new dojox.image.Lightbox({href:objImg.href},objDojoxImg);
    
    // root level node can be referenced using domNode property (useful for attaching events)
    objDojoxImg.domNode;
    Some widgets also require the method startup() is called after or before creation/ adding children. Nothing is really concrete and every widget tends to take on a unique interface. Its really f*ucked up… I would advise avoiding this library at all cost. Especially considering the documentation is terrible. For someone who is not a prpgrammer or knows very little code this library would be a disaster to understand.
