DOMAssistant 2.8 hits beta 3

February 1st, 2010 by chenghong

Changes since beta 2:

  • [New] Ability to avoid global namespace collision of $ and $$ with DOMAssistant.harmonize()
  • [Fix] ID selectors containing $ and = do not work
  • [Fix] Some events cannot be removed via removeEvent, such as mutation events

Introducing the ‘harmony’ mode

The harmony mode allows DOMAssistant to live with other Javascript libraries on the same page without conflict. To use it, just invoke DOMAssistant.harmonize(), like so:

<script type="text/javascript" src="DOMAssistantCompressed.js"> </script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    DOMAssistant.DOMReady( function() {
        // Use $ and $$ like you always have
    } );
    var divs = DOMAssistant.$('div');
<script type="text/javascript" src="AnotherLib.js"> </script>


We appreciate if you could report any abnormalities you might find in this beta. Version 2.8 is now closer to release than ever!

Event delegation relies on the bubbling characteristics of events, which, unsurprisingly, do not behave consistently across browsers. Beta 1 ensures support for ‘focus’ and ‘blur’; beta 4 takes it a step further by providing support for traditionally non-bubbly form events on IE – ’submit’, ‘reset’, ‘change’ and ’select’. Special thanks to Greg Reimer for inspiration of the technique.Changes since beta 3: [...]
