I download identify dijit sample from code gallery and tested okay.I want to add a button where it will only enable identify dijit when the button is clicked.Please help.

Following is the idea:

----
--------
----------
function btnEnable(val) {
identifyDijit = new dijits.identify.Indentify( { map: map } );

   if(val =="option 1"){
     identifyDijit.startup();
   }

   if(val=="option 2")(
     identifyDijit.destroy();
   }
}

I use dijit.form.ToggleButton.


dojo.require("dijit.form.ToggleButton");
var idStatus = false;


in the init() function:
dojo.connect(map, "onClick", function(evt) {
        mapPoint = evt.mapPoint;
        testIdentify();
    });


the buttons onClick:
onClick: function() { idStatus = !idStatus; idStatus ? map.setMapCursor("help") : map.setMapCursor("default"); }


function testIdentify(evt) {
    if (idStatus) {
       // do identify
    }
    return;
}

Thank you crombezk for pointing out the existence of a ToggleButton dijit! I have been using a very crude way of displaying the active tool on the toolbar before I saw your solution. It looks much more elegant now.

By the way, as per the Dojo API for this dijit, you only need to import the dijit.form.Button class to get the ToggleButton. You do not have to import that class alone.
