outerWidth() returning an object...

I now you have several other closed tickets about this. And you claim it is not a bug, if that is the case then you need to update your documentation, as you claim it should behave the same as false. From your site:

"If includeMargin is omitted or false, the padding and border are included in the calculation; if true, the margin is also included."

This new "not a bug" feature of 1.8 has broken a lot of my code.

And to point out another item on the page:

.outerWidth( [includeMargin] ) Returns: Integer

  • not returns Object or Integer

Everything is working as documented in jQuery core. Check your other code to see what is shimming .outerWidth() to make it think it should chain.

Please don't create duplicate tickets.
