dijit._Templated has been superseded by dijit._TemplatedMixin and dijit._WidgetsInTemplateMixin. Please see those pages for details. dijit._Templated will be removed in the 2.0 release.

waiRole and waiState

These attributes were support for accessibility, to define the role of DOM nodes such as “tree”. See Creating Accessible Widgets for more information.

However, due to browser advancements widgets can now just specify roles (ex: role=”grid”) and aria states (ex: aria-pressed=”true”) directly.


Setting the widgetsInTemplate flag to true turns on the widgets-in-template feature described by dijit._WidgetsInTemplateMixin.
