Delegated Events fail on SVG elements

Component: event Version: 1.7
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Using delegated events on embedded SVG has an error regarding class selectors (possibly other selectors, too). This used to work with jQuery 1.6.4. - working jQuery 1.6.4 - failing jQuery 1.7

Possible solution for quickIs:

m[3].test( elem.attributes.class )

We'll look into it.

To continue timmywil's line of thought:

el.attributes['class'].value seems to work all the way back to IE6; you'll need to comment out a few lines for it to run in IE6/7.

Unfortunately we probably need to check el.attributes && el.attributes['class'] && el.attributes['class'].value to be safe.

Did I mention I hate SVG?

Fix #10791. SVG clamors for special treatment of its class names.

Please use "[class~='foo']" with SVG elements

Edit: corrected selector

For the browsers where .foo wouldn't work, [class~=foo] should work.

just for those wondering like I did,

jQuery don't plan on fixing any issue related to SVG/XML/VML:

and the workaround ~= might be problematic is some cases ([class~='selected'] also matches class="unselected")

Replying to [comment:8 BiAiB]:

No, ~= treats attribute values as space-separated lists and checks for an exact match.
