Conclusion

We now have an element that can render multiple related form input fields, and then handle the aggregated fields as a single entity -- the dateOfBirth element will be passed as an array to the element, and the element will then, as we noted earlier, create the appropriate date segments and return a value we can use for most backends.

Additionally, we can use different decorators with the element. If we wanted to use a Dojo DateTextBox dijit decorator -- which accepts and returns string values -- we can, with no modifications to the element itself.

In the end, you get a uniform element API you can use to describe an element representing a composite value.
