buildParams fails tries to serialize obj functions

Reported by: Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:

the buildParams funcion , called by $.ajax, fails when you pass an object that contains functions. For eg:

var data = {


fnc : function(){




$.post('url',{obj:data}, function(){});

it can be easily fixed by adding the following guard instruction:

function buildParams(prefix, obj, traditional, add) {

if (jQuery.type(obj) === "function") return;

Param objects should only contain serialization safe values - JSON doesn't allow functions and JSON rules are the rules to follow.
