Declarative VS. Programmatic dijit vidget

  • Programmatic widget creation is faster because the working in DOM has an overhead on searching elements that should become widgets.
  • Declarative widget creation has some limitation on methods
  • Declarative widget creation allows you to code simple pages faster. If your page isn't too big, the speed difference between declarative and programmatic widget creation is small.

In short: Simple thing, feel free to declare the widgets directly in the HTML. For more complex solutions program it in the JavaScript section of the document.
