.css('background-image') returns:

url(host/folder/file) in ff3.1


url("host/folder/file") in IE (note: the quotation marks!)

not testet in other browsers.

this code worked for me as a temporary fix:

function getBackgroundImageUrl(el) {

var url = $(el).css('background-image').split('(')[1].split(')')[0]; var url = $.browser.msie ? url.split('"')[1].split('"')[0] : url; return url;

Aren't the two functionally identical?

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

See the W3C:  http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#uri

Quoting is allowed, and either quoting or escaping is required if there are certain characters in the URL. So, your code will need to be prepared for it anyway.
