View Full Version : ExtJS 4.1 removes ARIA role attribute in components

With ExtJS 4.1, there is no "role" attribute in radio buttons, thus rendering my radio button not being Section 508 compliant.

If I go back to ExtJS 4.0.7, sure enough, there is the role="radio" attribute for the input element.

4.0 and 4.1 do not fully support 508 yet, some things may work but we don't officially support it yet.

Thanks Mitchell... So, during the interim, would you recommend that I trap the render event and insert the role attribute to the element ?
