Ticket #2170 (closed bug: fixed)
attr() fails to get/set value for maxlength attribute on textarea elements
|Reported by:||rettipio||Owned by:|
On tested browsers (IE 6+, Safari 3 Win/Mac, FF 2+ Win/Mac) the attr() method fails to get/set value for the maxlength attribute on textarea elements. While maxlength is not a valid attribute for the textarea element, the company i work for uses it for validation purposes, and theoretically, jQuery should be able to find any attribute of a particular element.
I have attached fixed versions of jQuery core v.1.2.2.
The offending(now fixed) code occurs at line 1040 in the attached uncompressed version.
