#10750 closed bug (fixed)

A "null" in the data object can cause an error in stop

Reported by: lazahu@… Owned by: gnarf
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7.1
Component: effects Version: 1.7
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


IE8 drops a JS error - "Object required" - on line 8555 ($.stop()) when jQuery tries to access data[ i ].stop. A temporary workaround using data[ i ][ "stop" ] helped. However the behavior is not consistent, and I can't tell when this error is actually triggered. This is why I didn't make a jsFiddle example.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please ask for support on the forums or on the #jquery irc channel until the issue has been narrowed down to an issue with jQuery core.

Ok, let me fight to make your product bugfree.

I have tested it more, and turned out that the problem is not the reserved word (if "stop" is reserved at all), but not checking the data[i] existence before referencing its ".stop" value, and IE8 will drop an error if you try to access undefined.stop.

The situation is the following on IE8:

// line 8555 : jQuery.js
// inside the for ( i in data ) loop
data["olddisplay"] = null
data["olddisplay"].stop = // "Object required" error in IE8
data["events"] = [object Object] // ... more elements of the data array
data["events"].stop = undefined
data["handle"] = function( e ) {}
data["handle"].stop = undefined

The solution in IE8 could be either checking data[i] before referencing data[i].stop or providing " " as default value for "olddisplay".

In "normal" browsers it looks the following:

data["olddisplay"] = ''
data["olddisplay"].stop = undefined // No error

I hope now you understand why is not an "invalid" request.

Thanks, Laza

I'm going to look into this one, but a "null" in the data could definitely cause a bug there.
