Ticket #9413 (closed bug: fixed)
$.fn.removeData does not remove data with a dash in a name
|Reported by:||sidonath||Owned by:||rwaldron|
Some of the backwards-compatibility issues with camelCasing data names were solved in #9124, but not all.
Here is a test case that demonstrates the issue.
Expectation: $('#foo').removeData('foo-bar') removes data with key "fooBar"
But actually: $('#foo').removeData('foo-bar') doesn't remove anything. To remove the "fooBar" one has to explicitely call $('#foo').removeData('fooBar')
The current handling breaks old code ported to jQuery 1.6.1, but the release notes say that the upgrade should be seamless with respect to data changes in 1.6.0.
Solution: when removing "foo-bar", remove "fooBar" instead.
Workaround for developers: update code to use "fooBar" always.
