Some jQuery methods don't their check private variables.

Reported by: Larry Battle Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.4.3
Component: core Version: 1.4.2
Keywords: error Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


When faced with no arguments, most methods error out with no problems or return a value. But... Each of the following method calls, starting with css, will return an error and stop the rest of the script.

$(document.body).text('Test Completed.');

Demo:  http://jsbin.com/eriva/

jQuery Error - no arguments with methods

What is the suggested behavior for these cases?

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by Larry Battle

jQuery should just return the jquery object to fail safe.

if( !arguments.length ){ return this; }

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by dmethvin

  • Component changed from unfiled to core

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by rwaldron

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

The cases are all incorrect uses of the methods per the documentation and api.

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