   Ubiquity + Dojo widgets notes from today's meeting

Objectives::
1. Leverage dojo widgets for the UI
2. Leverage XForms for the data / model behavior
   (model-view bindings, refresh, validity, relevance etc.)
3. Leverage XML Events for mashup-ability
   (dojo is doing DOM L2)
4. Commons data model and event basis will give better integration in other
namespaces.
   (X+V++) -- via 2 and 3 and extensions to <xf:bind>
   Low hanging fruit - Wire two <input>s by ref'ing to same field


<!-- VARIANT 1 -->
<xf:input ref="dataset/user/email" id="email-input">
  <xf:label>Enter your email address</xf:label>
  <xf:extension>
    <input dojoType="dijit.form.Textbox" id="myInput">
        <!-- The dojo way -->
        <script type="dojo/method" event="onClick">
        doClick();
      </script>
        <!-- Using XML events -->
        <script ev:event="onClick">
        doClick();
      </script>
      </input>
  </xf:extension>;
</xf:input>


<!-- VARIANT 2 -->
<xf:input ref="dataset/user/email" id="email-input">
  <xf:label>Enter your email address</xf:label>
  <xf:extension>
    <input dojoType="dijit.form.Textbox" id="myInput">
      </input>
  </xf:extension>
  <!-- Using XML events -->
  <script ev:event="onClick">
    doClick();
  </script>
</xf:input>


<!-- VARIANT 3 -->
<xf:input ref="dataset/user/email" id="email-input">
  <xf:label>Enter your email address</xf:label>
  <xf:extension>
    <input dojoType="dijit.form.Textbox" id="myInput">
      </input>
  </xf:extension>
</xf:input>

<ev:listener target="email-input" event="onClick"
handler="#myClickHandler"/>

<script id="myClickHandler">  <!-- check syntax -->
  doClick();
</script>


<!-- VARIANT 4 -->
<xf:input ref="dataset/user/email" id="email-input"
dojoType="dijit.form.Textbox">
  <xf:label>Enter your email address</xf:label>
</xf:input>>

<ev:listener target="email-input" event="onClick"
handler="#myClickHandler"/>

<script id="myClickHandler">
  doClick();
</script>


<!-- VARIANT 5 -->
<xf:input ref="dataset/user/email" id="email-input"
dojoType="dijit.form.Textbox">
  <xf:label>Enter your email address</xf:label>
  <script ev:event="onClick">
    doClick();

</xf:input>
