$.each fails in IE with document.styleSheets

Reported by: d.wachss Owned by:
Priority: high Milestone: 1.6
Component: core Version: 1.3.2

Blocking: Blocked by:


$.each (document.styleSheets, function(){}); 

fails in Internet Explorer with the error:

Line: 692
Character: 11
Code: 0
Error Message: Invalid procedure call or argument

It seems the problem is the object[++i] at the end of the loop in $.each; instead of returning undefined it throws the error.

jQuery-dev related thread:


I tend to agree that this may be something to document rather than fix, since it should be relatively rare.

Great post by Richard Cornford analyzing this bug:  http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.javascript/msg/468705660cc10d82

Looks like this is a bug that can be fixed.

The bug is fixable, but Richard Cornford's analysis is wrong. The bug shows up no matter how large the collection is. His comments are largely aimed at criticizing jQuery.
