It’s kind of annoying to me that Dojo SelectBoxes do not have the ability to select all items with a single function call. It’s kind of strange. I can understand their connection to data stores to keep the data, but how can they not have selectBox.selectAll()?
To have the ability to select all items and clear a select box that swaps selected items with a second right hand select box, I had to use the following semi-convoluted code:
var selectItem1 = dijit.byId('firstSelectBox'); // Deselect all and invert to Select all selectItem1.set("value",); selectItem1.invertSelection(); //Move items to right box var selectItem2 = dijit.byId('secondSelectBox'); selectItem2.addSelected(selectItem1);
I guess we could make our own custom extension of the class, but seems like it should already be in there. maybe it’s a deliberate decision of the Dojo team. Just odd.
