document jQuery.readyWait

Reported by: texec Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 1.5
Component: misc Version: 1.5
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


jQuery.fn.ready contains no test for jQuery.readyWait, so readyWait is totally useless at the moment. Recommend fix:

jquery-1.4.3.js, line 280:
- if ( jQuery.isReady ) {
+ if ( jQuery.isReady && jQuery.readyWait <= 0 ) {

If not, I don't understand how to use readyWait and it should be better documented.

I think this bug report is invalid.

 readyWait sample to show usage of readyWait and that it is working as expected.

I don't think so. It's very easy -  if $() is called after the event fired your example fails.

@anonymous: your modified version of the readyWait sample fails because you used an invalid type attribute in your second script tag: <script type='txt/javascript'> instead of <script type='text/javascript'>. This causes the browser to ignore the script.

Nevertheless, the original version of the example is pretty weird.... jQuery.readyWait += 2 WTF??? - simply setting it to true would have made things more clear. Why is the first script in CDATA and the second not...? 2 explanatory comments along the jQuery.readyWait/jquery.ready(true) lines would have been nice

  • Milestone changed from 1.4.4 to 1.4.5

Retargeting due to severity of regressions in 1.4.3.

@fbuchinger Oops, my mistake. But if you use this outside a testcase in a real world environment with large scripts this is 100% reproducible. Simply look at the code and check what happens if jquery.isReady is set before jquery.ready(function…) is called.

@snover: Retargeting due to severity of regressions in 1.4.3. This is a joke isn't it? We have too many bugs so we don't even try to solve the very simple ones?

There wasn't a 1.4.5 release, was actually 1.5.

  • Milestone changed from 1.4.5 to 1.5

There was no 1.4.5 release, was actually 1.5.

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