animate from width:0px to width:100% causing exception

Reported by: Owned by:

Component: misc Version: 1.6.3

In function animate there is following code:

if (unit !== "px") {, name, (end || 1) + unit);
    start = ((end || 1) / e.cur()) * start;, name, start + unit);

Should probably check if e.cur() is zero.

Thanks for the suggestion. If you take a look through the jQuery source, you'll see that this is handled appropriately in jQuery.fx when calling e.cur();


e = new jQuery.fx( this, opt, p );

and then later down in jQuery.fx(..)

Empty strings, null, undefined and "auto" are converted to 0,

complex values such as "rotate(1rad)" are returned as is,

simple values such as "10px" are parsed to Float.

and if you check jQuery.fx.prototype..

r = jQuery.css( this.elem, this.prop );

return isNaN( parsed = parseFloat( r ) ) ? !r || r === "auto" ? 0 : r : parsed;

I experienced the same problem (with opacity).

The missing simple zero-check prevents some animations to start from the correct start value.

As far as I can see even jQuery.fx.prototype.step cant handle this because "now" and "start" stay NaN, so it isn't handled! I.e. the jQuery.fx.prototype.step.opacity (at line 8823, 1.7.1) receives "NaN" in parameter!

BTW: What should this line actually do? Should it take another animation in account? Then why not just do

start = e.cur();


Here are 2 test cases:

Fade out: (works)

Fade in: (doesn't work - style.opacity value equals end-value during whole animation!)

You can even try to use start values other than 0 - doesn't work either.

Please apply the supposed check and these blurry edge-cases are gone and it just works!
