fluid.defaults(global, componentName, defaults);

File name: Fluid.js


global (boolean) Optional: If true, manipulate a global option (for the head component) rather than instance options. Note that this is deprecated as of v1.3
componentName (String) the name of the component
defaults (Object) a container of key/value pairs to set. See #Defaults Structure below for information about the format of this object.

Defaults Structure

The defaults object ...

    option1: <default value for option one>,
    option2: {
        subOpt1: <default for sub-option1>,
        subOpt2: <default for sub-option1>
The array of arguments can contain references to...


fluid.defaults("inlineEdit", {
    selectors: {
        text: ".text",
        editContainer: ".editContainer",
        edit: ".edit"

In this example, the default selectors(text, editContainer, edit) for inlineEdit are set to the element with the following classes respectively, text, editContainer, edit. As the componenent's creator starts up, it will merge together the user's instance options to produce its runtime options.
