animate function not working properly in Chrome

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.9.1

Blocked by: Blocking:

Push this code into a BODY tag:

<div id="xxx" style="position: absolute;right: 40px;top: 0;background-color: #EEE;width: 400px;height: inherit;">PRUEBA</div>

And then try this:

$('#xxx').animate({'left': '50%'}, 1000);

In FF is working properly... But NOT in Chrome.

In Chrome the element start in the LEFT, and then move to the right (fail).

In FF start in the original position, and then move to the left (ok).

Sorry for my bad english.

The problem occurs when an element has defined a "right" in "px", and the animation is defined to make the "right" in "%"

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

I confirm this bug, it should not be closed. (a little more readable test case)

It doesn't make sense to animate the left property as a percentage. A percentage of WHAT?

A percentage of the parent! or representative!.

So we can say: "align left 50 pixels of WHAT?"

And, YES, is a bug.

Definitely a bug and should be reopened:

Another fiddle (try that in Chrome):

Inspect the green box and see how 'left' property changes if you click 'Animate left' or 'Animate right'.

That works fine in the rest of my browsers.
