After getting started the book moves on to consider the use of the enhanced Dojo controls – Dijits – textboxes, buttons, combo boxes, sliders, drop down button and so on. Then we meet the layout controls, tooltips, menus, trees, and popup menus. The book closes with a look at some topics away from the user interface. How to implement drag-and-drop and the facilities that Dojo provides for implementing Ajax.
At best this is a cookbook of standard techniques but even here it doesn’t really work because all of the examples are entirely standard and mostly uninteresting.
