DOJO-widget: how trigger publish event?

Vote:
 

Hey guys,

I've created a DOJO-widget. It works fine apart from the fact that it doesn't trigger the Publish event. I can get around it by clicking on different parts of the screen, but it's not an acceptable solution for the editors.

The code basically looks like this:

postCreate: function () {

// create HTML elements: a dropdown, some checkboxes and some textboxes

... }

_getValueAttr: function () {

... }

_setValueAttr: function () {

... }

Is there any way to hook up to some changed-event when creating the HTML elements?

Shameless bump;

the DOJO-widget is used in a block. The only block attribute is the DOJO-widget:

This means, as far as I can tell, that since the editor is never leaving (tabbing out of) the DOJO-widget-property, EPiServer never triggers the Publish Page-event (aka page changed, light up the blue publish page button). The only way to get around this is by clicking somewhere outside the widget, this makes the widget lose focus and the publish button gets enabled (blue).

So, does anyone know how to manually trigger the Publish Page-event?

Thankful for any insights here.

Solved by the following code:

* adding onChange: function () { this._customTrigger(); } when creating the elements

* adding custom trigger: _customTrigger() { this.value = this._getValueAttr(); this.onChange(this.value); }
