Description

Line 3205: jquery-1.3.2.js throws 'document.body is null' for following usecase

  1. Load site which has jquery-1.3.2.js in IE or FireFox
  2. Before loading previous site, try to load any other site say google.com.
  3. document.body is null error appears in console
  4. Google.com loads fine

This issue is not show stopper but unnecessary alert is appearing which is giving a wrong impression to user.

jQuery(function() {

var div = document.createElement("div"); div.style.width = div.style.paddingLeft = "1px";

document.body.appendChild( div );

jQuery.boxModel = jQuery.support.boxModel = div.offsetWidth === 2;

Line 3205: document.body.removeChild( div ).style.display = 'none';

div = null;

});

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Component changed from unfilled to event

This was fixed in jQuery 1.4 (document.body is guaranteed to exist before the ready even fires, at minimum).

var submitButton;

$(document).ready(function() {

submitButton = $("#cmdSubmit");

});

NOTE that calling $("form:first").submit() seems to bypass ASP.NET MVC's ajax stuff and submit the whole page which we don't want window.setInterval( function() {submitButton.click();}, <% Response.Write(ViewData.Model.UpdatePanelRefreshRate.ToString()); %>);
