Unexpected attribute selector behaviour

Reported by: SpadXIII Owned by:
Priority: critical Milestone: 1.4
Component: unfiled Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: selector attribute Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


I have 2 forms with each just 2 elements:


  • text input with the name/id="name"
  • submit input with name/id="submit"


  • text input with the name/id="name2"
  • submit input with name/id="submit2"

When I try to select the submit buttons to add an onclick-event, I get unexpected results. I'm selecting the submit buttons like:

$('form[name=form1] :submit');

$('form[name=form2] :submit');

Selecting the submit in form1 does not work, while selecting the submit in form2 does work. The only difference between the 2 forms is the inputs name/id. See attached html sample.

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

Don't give form elements a name or id that is the same as a form method or property. That includes names like submit, id, action, method, length, etc.


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