Excess code in script.js?

Reported by: dcherman Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: ajax Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


I didn't want to file a PR since I might be wrong, but I don't think the following line actually does anything:


If s.crossDomain is true, the corresponding script ajaxTransport doesn't even use the s.type property, so why set it?

Consistency: the request automagically became a GET request because it was cross domain, callbacks can inspect the options object and control/use it.

Gotcha. Would you entertain a PR to add a comment above that line explaining exactly what you just described in case anyone has the same question in the future?

  • Priority changed from undecided to low
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Component changed from unfiled to ajax

@dcherman jaubourg may reply to this himself, but it's probably a good idea to go ahead and make the PR to add the comment and continue the discussion about whether it's worth adding on GH. That said, I imagine someone that has the same question in the future might try doing search of tickets on the tracker for further info.. :)

I honestly dunno if a comment would benefit much. Code is pretty straight-forward in stating that cross-domain script requests are handled as GET requests.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
