  4. Alex says:

    Looks like the CDN url has an unneeded “.xd” in it?

  5. xxxmmxxx says:

    Where can find the early the documentation pages of this website, because My IE9 can not correctly view the new version.

    When I upgraded dojo from 1.6 to 1.7 many features are not working and a simple code like this is also not working :

    var button = new dijit.form.DropDownButton({
    label: ”,
    dropDown: dialog

    it was unable to recognize searchContainer id,
    Many issues came in my application when I upgraded to 1.7.
    I dont understand where is wrong.(whether it is in DOJO version or in my code.).

    I used Dojo during 2 years but this year I only used ExtJS.
    I saw the new release post with the new AMD capabilities. But how it is working ? There is still no “search’ button in the documentation. I find during 5 minutes an example of the AMD on I found nothing. How do you want new user switch on Dojo ? Maybe it is a great framework but without any good documentation it is useless.
    After 12 month of ExtJs I would to come back on Dojo (because I like this framework… and sencha haven’t do something very good this year with the very bad ExtJS 4) …but after 12 month using ExtJS documentation …the come back is too hard.

    Thanks for answer, and add this search field quick ;-)

    Hello, Tom. We, as users can also contribute to docs at:

    I agree that documentation is far from beauty for new users, however it is getting better and better.

    So… basically this month was a bad time to join the dojo… There are alot of stuff that doesn’t work it seems. Containers and panes examples work but the tree stuff isn’t working for me.

    Also is there an “application best practices” around? I don’t really know if to do code or declare html.

    Having some trouble getting started but otherwise it looks cool and I’m so happy to get out of ExtJS4 which is pretty bad…

  11. Nisse says:

    I’m new to Dojo and really excited about what it can do. But I have to agree with many others. The documentation is very very poor, and lot’s of examples I have copy/pasted doesn’t work. Stumbeled into several 404 pages aswell browsing examples and docs. Using the checking stuff like Dialog in 1.7 mode gives an emty page with only a constructor. Now I find myself looking at other frameworks. Gonna stick around though and see if things get better.
