1.8rc1: outerHeight() returns object

I'm currently unable to reproduce this with a fiddle, but after update to 1.8rc1 all my popups are positioned wrong. It looks that outerHeight() returns object in some circumstances.

Most likely some plugin is duck-punching outerHeight incorrectly. In 1.8, outerHeight can be used as a setter and it would return the jQuery object it was passed.

If you identify that the problem is in a plugin, please let us know which one. However, it is not a bug in jQuery itself.

We experienced the same issue (outerHeight returning an object) when we run jquery-1.8.0 with jquery-ui-1.8.16 After upgrading to jquery-ui-1.8.22, the issue seems to have been resolved.

Good to know, since that is the version compatible with jQuery core 1.8. Thanks!

In my case, it's caused, simply by calling...


...using "1" instead of "true"...that works in < 1.8, returns an Object in 1.8

jQuery UI is NOT necessary to cause this.

Please see...

...I think outerHeight should be change/reverted to accept 1/0 in addition to true/false.
