Subject cforms dojo updates: calendar, help and validation messages, multivalue editor
Date Sun, 21 Jan 2007 15:04:10 GMT

I've replaced the calendar, the help and validation message popups and
the multi-value editor with dojo-based implementations. Thanks to Jeremy
for upgrading to dojo 0.4, which made this possible and easier.

For the first 3, these now use dojo's popup-things, which has the
user-visible advantages of using a backing iframe in IE (so the popups
are displayed on top of other input fields), correct positioning of the
popups in IE, and at most one popup is open at the same time.

Since validation messages are also displayed via these popups, any mixed
content in them will now be preserved.

For the calendar, it now supports date, time, and datetime selection,
this is driven by the 'variant' attribute of the formatting date
convertor. As before, the server-side date/time patterns are also also
used on the client. The calendar is internationalized, for the precise
supported languages see the dojo-languages parameter in

If anyone notices problems, feel free to fix or report them.
