I am coming from a different development background with a very little jQuery and/or shieldUI knowledge. Can someone please very shortly explain how to remove/destroy shieldUI components or widgets? I don't see any special widget method therefore I assume this is done with jQuery. By destroying I mean removing everything down to (including) markup.
Also, what happenes with widget when calling hide()? I see that markup is somehow stripped down (removed), but some wrappers remain. Is it safe to call another widget setup with the same "id" ? will it overwrite? will it cause object orhpans?
As you see I am missing some very basic "how it works". I am a quick learner so please, just few basic pointers will do. Thank you :)
EDIT: found destroy widget method under "swidget()"...what is swidget?
swidget() gives you a reference to the component instance, through which you can access methods and properties, such as
Further, with respect to the question at hand, regarding the destroy method and approach - the ideas is, that whenever you need to refresh some data on the component, you can recreate it, rather than calling a method such as rebind. This is demonstrated in the following demo: http://demos.shieldui.com/web/rangebar-chart/related-charts
