Custom Control Question

I have a control defined as follows

AW.HTML.userInfo = AW.System.Control.subclass();
AW.HTML.userInfo.create = function()
{
    var obj = this.prototype;
    obj.setTag("div");

    obj.defineTemplate("myfield", new AW.HTML.SPAN);
    with (obj.getTemplate("myfield"))
    {
        setClass("left-column","text");
        setContent("");
    }
}


Then I have made a function for that object as follows

AW.HTML.userInfo.prototype.update = function (theInfo)
{
    for (var d in theInfo)
    {
        with(this.getTemplate(d))
        {
            setContent(theInfo[d]);
        }
    }
}


Then I pass an associative array as my parameter like this

var myUser = {'myfield':'test data'};
userInfo = new AW.HTML.userInfo;
userInfo.setId("mycontrol");
userInfo.update(myUser);


The problem revolves around this line I believe but not sure how to solve it.

Problem: ?????
with(this.getTemplate(d))

Not sure how to get the template from another defined function. Anyone?

Ok. Found my own answer. The code for the defined function is like

AW.HTML.userInfo.prototype.update = function (theInfo)
{
    for (var d in theInfo)
    {
        eval('myobj = this.getTemplate("'+d+'")');
        with(myobj)
        {
            setContent("html",theInfo[d]);
        }
    }
}

I guess you can also define it within the class itself and not externally as follows

obj.update = function (theInfo)
    {
        for (var d in theInfo)
        {
            eval('myobj = this.getTemplate("'+d+'")');
            with(myobj)
            {
                setContent("html",theInfo[d]);
            }
        }
    }

While your original function should've worked, the workaround seems to be a real kludge. Personally, I run into problems with "with()" quite often. Probably because I don't completely understand how it works. Anyway, have you tried simply:

AW.HTML.userInfo.prototype.update = function (theInfo) 
{ 
    for (var d in theInfo) 
        this.getTemplate(d).setContent(theInfo[d]); 
}


?

Yes. That was the first thing I tried.

Tony, this seems to work:

AW.HTML.userInfo = AW.System.Control.subclass(); 
      AW.HTML.userInfo.create = function() 
      { 
          var obj = this.prototype; 
          obj.setTag("div"); 
      
          obj.defineTemplate("myfield", new AW.HTML.SPAN); 
          with (obj.getMyfieldTemplate()) 
          { 
              setClass("left-column","text"); 
              setContent("html", "<b>test</b>"); 
          } 
          
          obj.setContent("html", function() {
             return this.getMyfieldTemplate();
          })        
          
         obj.update = function (theInfo) 
         { 
             for (var d in theInfo) 
             { 
                 this.getTemplate(d).setContent("html",theInfo[d]); 
             } 
         } 
      } 

      var myUser = {'myfield':'test data'}; 
      userInfo = new AW.HTML.userInfo; 
      userInfo.setId("mycontrol"); 
      userInfo.update(myUser);


I finally got it working after chaning return this.getTemplate("myfield") to this.getMyfieldTemplate() in update(). For reasons I still don't understand, the object in 'this' didn't have a reference to 'getTemplate', but it was more then happy to provide a reference to 'getMyfieldTemplate'.
