fluid.createDomBinder(container, selectors);

File name: Fluid.js

Return Value

By default, any component created using one of the framework component initialization functions (fluid.initView, fluid.initLittleComponent, fluid.initRendererComponent, fluid.initSubcomponent) will have a DOM Binder automatically. If you use one of these functions, you no not need to call fluid.createDomBinder(). The DOM Binder will be attached to your that object as that.dom and its {{locate}} function will be accessible through that.locate().


var selectors = {
  addButton = ".add-button",
  deleteButton = ".delete-button",
  closeButton = ".close-button"
var domBinder = fluid.createDomBinder(containerEl, selectors);

In this example, domBinder will be a DOM Binder object, and will have locate, fastLocate, clear, and refresh functions.
