Display EnhancedGrid inside Custom Widget

Hi There,


I've racked my brains around this for hours and thought I'd ask those who maybe can help me out. I am trying to create a custom dojo widget that contains a dojox EnhancedGrid. My widget will contain other things but this is a big part.


My widget is being created and I am able to add dojo buttons and labels to it no problem and everything is rendered fine. I can see the buttons and click on the buttons and the appropriate events fire. When I add an EnhancedGrid however it is not rendered and I can't see the thing.


My current HTML is as follows:




JS file is as follows:


define(["dojo/_base/declare", "dojo/ready", "dijit/_WidgetBase", "dijit/_TemplatedMixin", "dijit/_WidgetsInTemplateMixin", "dojo/text!./templates/TestResults.html", "dojox/grid/EnhancedGrid", "dojo/data/ItemFileWriteStore", "dijit/layout/ContentPane", "dojo/domReady!"],
    function (declare, ready, _WidgetBase, _TemplatedMixin, _WidgetsInTemplateMixin, htmlOutput, EnhancedGrid, ItemFileWriteStore, ContentPane) {
        return declare("TestResults", [_WidgetBase, _TemplatedMixin, _WidgetsInTemplateMixin], {

            templateString: htmlOutput,

            /* constructor */
            constructor: function () {

            postCreate: function () {

                var items = [];

                for (var i = 0; i < 3; i++)
                    items.push({ A: i, B: (i + 1), C: (i + 2) });

                // create a new store
                var store = new ItemFileWriteStore({
                    data: {
                        items: items

                var grid1 = new EnhancedGrid({
                    noDataMessage: "this is empty!",
                    id: "minGrido",
                    structure: [
                        { name: "A", field: "A", width: "100px" },
                        { name: "B", field: "B", width: "100px" },
                        { name: "C", field: "C", width: "100px" }
                    store: store




To make sure I am able to add widgets in a custom widget I added a button that preceded the grid and a button that came after the grid and those guys worked, but again the grid was not rendered. The weird thing is that if I use Firebug to explore it, the datagrid is created and I can see the div that has the id minGrido. But again, I can't see any of the headers or data that I assigned to the grid. I've tried grid1.resize() but no luck.


Has anyone experienced this before?
