css("background-image") returns null for new elements in IE7/8

Reported by: jmabey Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: css Version: 1.6.3
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Suppose you create an element with $() and then set its background image. If you then try to retrieve the background image using css() using IE7 and 8, then null is returned. However, its style.backgroundImage property holds the correct value.

  • Test case:
  • What happens: IE7 and 8 return null instead of a URL for css('background-image')
  • Expected: css('background-image') should return a URL
  • Reproducible jQuery 1.6.3 and below using IE7 and 8, but works as expected in 1.3.2
  • Works as expected in Firefox 6.0.2, Chrome 13, Opera 11.51 under Ubuntu 11.04, and IE9
  • Not tested in IE6
