attr function breaks on .css call

noticed this bug when using jquery-greybox. greybox calls .css function, css function calls attr which breaks on name.replace.

function that breaks attr: function( elem, name, value )

somehow the name parameter is converted from a string (which is what is should be) into an array function.

to patch this bug, I added some type checking before line #1056 in jquery-1.3.2.js.

if (typeof name != "string" ) {

return undefined;


there is probably a better/more efficient way to handle this. attached is my patched file. cheers.

  • need changed from Review to Test Case

Can you provide a test case? The proposed patch just works around unexpected input, but it's not clear what is generating the input.

No test case.

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