Using dojoType on mendix widgets?

Following up the question on building widgets with dojo. When you create a widget based on dojo it is possible to set a dojoType in the template. This allows for quick reuse of existing widgets. Do existing mendix widgets also have a dojoType or maby a mendixType that makes them accessable in a template? A workaround would be to create a dojo widget that contains the mendix widget however if possible i would like to avoid creating a wrapper for mendix widgets.

Mendix widgets can be used in the same way as Dojo widgets. Actually, Mendix widgets are Dojo widgets and so they can be instantiated via markup with a dojoType. MxButton for example has dojoType "mendix.widget.MxButton", and can be instantiated as follows:

<div dojoType="mendix.widget.MxButton" title="Title" ... ></div>

To see how existing Mendix widgets are used, check the exported forms (mxf-files) in your deployment/web/forms directory.
