Themeswitcher: onSelect behavior

Reported by: pwnedd Owned by:

Component: [meta] ui.themeroller Version: 1.7.2

Would it be possible to:

1. Have onSelect provide the name of the theme that was selected? It is not hard to find (e.g. $(".jquery-ui-themeswitcher-trigger > .jquery-ui-themeswitcher-title").text()), but it would be useful to simply pass to the event-handler.

2. Prevent onSelect from firing during initialization?

Not sure about point 1, but if I understand correctly point 2 it's an issue I've been thinking about lately. When setting the "onSelect" callback in the widget options, I noticed that it was getting triggered on every page load after having selected a theme. I believe that the expected behaviour is to trigger only after the actual select from the widget, and not on every successive theme load (such as on page load).

I found the cause, it was because when the theme is loaded either from the cookie or from the "loadTheme" option, a click is triggered on the widget, causing the onselect event to trigger also. So I deleted the click trigger and modified it so as not to trigger the onselect event. Here is my test case on jsbin: ( = original themeswitcher widget code)

versus (my code)

Is the themeswitcher widget to be found on the repository on GitHub? If so I can push a fix, but after looking over the repository I could not find the themeswitcher widget code.
