ButtonCore Class

Creates a button

Constructor

ButtonCore

(
  • config
)

Parameters:

  • config Object

    Configuration object

Methods

_addAttrs

(
  • cfgs
  • values
  • lazy
)
private

Implementation behind the public addAttrs method.

This method is invoked directly by get if it encounters a scenario in which an attribute's valueFn attempts to obtain the value an attribute in the same group of attributes, which has not yet been added (on demand initialization).

Parameters:

  • cfgs Object

    An object with attribute name/configuration pairs.

  • values Object

    An object with attribute name/value pairs, defining the initial values to apply. Values defined in the cfgs argument will be over-written by values in this argument unless defined as read only.

  • lazy Boolean

    Whether or not to delay the intialization of these attributes until the first call to get/set. Individual attributes can over-ride this behavior by defining a lazyAdd configuration property in their configuration. See addAttr.

_addLazyAttr

(
  • name
  • [lazyCfg]
)
private

Finishes initializing an attribute which has been lazily added.

Parameters:

  • name Object

    The name of the attribute

  • [lazyCfg] Object optional

    Optional config hash for the attribute. This is added for performance along the critical path, where the calling method has already obtained lazy config from state.

_addOutOfOrder

(
  • name
  • cfg
)
private

Utility method used by get/set to add attributes encountered out of order when calling addAttrs().

For example, if:

this.addAttrs({
                 foo: {
                     setter: function() {
                        // make sure this bar is available when foo is added
                        this.get("bar");
                     }
                 },
                 bar: {
                     value: ...
                 }
            });

Parameters:

  • name String

    attribute name

  • cfg Object

    attribute configuration

Returns:

Any:

The value of the attribute.

_getAttrInitVal

(
  • attr
  • cfg
  • initValues
)
Any private

Returns the initial value of the given attribute from either the default configuration provided, or the over-ridden value if it exists in the set of initValues provided and the attribute is not read-only.

(
  • attrs
)
Object protected

Implementation behind the public getAttrs method, to get multiple attribute values.

addAttr

(
  • name
  • config
  • lazy
)
Object chainable

Adds an attribute with the provided configuration to the host object.

The config argument object supports the following properties:

value <Any>
The initial value to set on the attribute
valueFn <Function | String>

A function, which will return the initial value to set on the attribute. This is useful for cases where the attribute configuration is defined statically, but needs to reference the host instance ("this") to obtain an initial value. If both the value and valueFn properties are defined, the value returned by the valueFn has precedence over the value property, unless it returns undefined, in which case the value property is used.

valueFn can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used to retrieve the value.

readOnly <boolean>
Whether or not the attribute is read only. Attributes having readOnly set to true cannot be modified by invoking the set method.
writeOnce <boolean> or <string>
Whether or not the attribute is "write once". Attributes having writeOnce set to true, can only have their values set once, be it through the default configuration, constructor configuration arguments, or by invoking set.

The writeOnce attribute can also be set to the string "initOnly", in which case the attribute can only be set during initialization (when used with Base, this means it can only be set during construction)

setter <Function | String>

The setter function used to massage or normalize the value passed to the set method for the attribute. The value returned by the setter will be the final stored value. Returning Attribute.INVALID_VALUE, from the setter will prevent the value from being stored.

setter can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used as the setter function.

getter <Function | String>

The getter function used to massage or normalize the value returned by the get method for the attribute. The value returned by the getter function is the value which will be returned to the user when they invoke get.

getter can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used as the getter function.

validator <Function | String>

The validator function invoked prior to setting the stored value. Returning false from the validator function will prevent the value from being stored.

validator can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used as the validator function.

lazyAdd <boolean>
Whether or not to delay initialization of the attribute until the first call to get/set it. This flag can be used to over-ride lazy initialization on a per attribute basis, when adding multiple attributes through the addAttrs method.

The setter, getter and validator are invoked with the value and name passed in as the first and second arguments, and with the context ("this") set to the host object.

Configuration properties outside of the list mentioned above are considered private properties used internally by attribute, and are not intended for public use.

Parameters:

  • name String

    The name of the attribute.

  • config Object

    An object with attribute configuration property/value pairs, specifying the configuration for the attribute.

    NOTE: The configuration object is modified when adding an attribute, so if you need to protect the original values, you will need to merge the object.

  • lazy Boolean

    (optional) Whether or not to add this attribute lazily (on the first call to get/set).

Returns:

Object:

A reference to the host object.

addAttrs

(
  • cfgs
  • values
  • lazy
)
Object chainable

Configures a group of attributes, and sets initial values.

NOTE: This method does not isolate the configuration object by merging/cloning. The caller is responsible for merging/cloning the configuration object if required.

Parameters:

  • cfgs Object

    An object with attribute name/configuration pairs.

  • values Object

    An object with attribute name/value pairs, defining the initial values to apply. Values defined in the cfgs argument will be over-written by values in this argument unless defined as read only.

  • lazy Boolean

    Whether or not to delay the intialization of these attributes until the first call to get/set. Individual attributes can over-ride this behavior by defining a lazyAdd configuration property in their configuration. See addAttr.

Returns:

Object:

A reference to the host object.

attrAdded

(
  • name
)
Boolean

Checks if the given attribute has been added to the host

Parameters:

  • name String

    The name of the attribute to check.

Returns:

Boolean:

true if an attribute with the given name has been added, false if it hasn't. This method will return true for lazily added attributes.

disable

() public

Sets the button's disabled DOM attribute to true

enable

() public

Sets the button's disabled DOM attribute to false

get

(
  • name
)
Any

Returns the current value of the attribute. If the attribute has been configured with a 'getter' function, this method will delegate to the 'getter' to obtain the value of the attribute.

Parameters:

  • name String

    The name of the attribute. If the value of the attribute is an Object, dot notation can be used to obtain the value of a property of the object (e.g. get("x.y.z"))

Returns:

Any:

The value of the attribute

getAttrs

(
  • attrs
)
Object

Gets multiple attribute values.

Parameters:
